Take a simple array of variation types to enhance a 1980s-inspired design for a checklist loaded with past, present and future greats and then add in some autographs, buybacks and other surprises for a bargain price and you get 2016 Panini Classics.
The retro-inspired modern release arrived today with an autograph in every 14-pack box and a memorabilia in every other box.
Sometimes the differences between parallels are substantial, while other times they are subtle.
You can see a sampling of notable rookies, parallels, autographs and memorabilia cards in the gallery below, which will update in the coming days as interesting cards are found in packs.
