Panini America has been busy in California preparing for Super Bowl 50 as part of the NFL Experience with collectors at home, in cyberspace and in San Francisco all having options.
For those at home, there are the Super Bowl Private Signings cards. For every $150 NFL purchase made on the Panini website, a collector will receive an autographed card made for the program. The cards are Private Signings autographs or an autograph memorabilia Rookie Card. Also possible are HyperPlaid 1/1 parallels.
For those in the digital realm, Panini‘s Gridiron app has Super Bowl packs and cards available — a 49-card Super Bowl Legends set and a 50-card Super Bowl Logos set. These will be available for a limited time and, like other digital collectibles, can translate into real cash if the right card is put on the market for a dedicated digital collector to add in a non-digital way.
As previously teased here on The Buzz, Panini has a pair of Super Bowl card sets for fans to chase either at the NFL Experience or potentially at the local card shop. There’s a 20-card historic set at the event as well as a 21-card Super Bowl 50 set focused on the Carolina Panthers and the Denver Broncos seen above. Some hobby shops and retail chains will have the Panthers-Broncos set, while the other one will be at the Experience.
Another part of the Panini Super Bowl presence is its Kid Reporter, a nine-year-old fourth-grader Riley Ottele, who was on the scene with the media in advance of the game.
Super Bowl 50, of course, is set for Sunday at 6:30 Eastern on CBS.
