We’ve not yet seen the first images of cards from Panini America‘s four forthcoming NASCAR products, but the retail details for three of those products promise to rev the engines of racing fans who have waited a long time for new cardboard.
For starters, there will be a hit in every single blaster box.
Panini Prizm (July 27) will launch the NASCAR run for Panini with an autograph or memorabilia card in every blaster box, a Prizm rainbow that includes six shades of parallels and Camo Prizms found only in the blaster boxes. There will be four cards per pack with six packs per box for a suggested retail price of $19.99.
Panini Torque (Aug. 31) will be a blaster-only release with one autograph or memorabilia card in every eight-card box. Among the inclusions here will be Jumbo Memorabilia Signatures, Combo Material Signatures and Silhouette Signatures. Inserts will include Championship Vision, Winning Vision, Superstar Vision and Clear Vision. These also will carry a suggested retail price of $19.99 a box.
Panini Certified (Sept. 28) will be a brand where every card inside every pack will be serial-numbered. There will be one autograph or memorabilia card in each of these three-pack blaster boxes with the same suggested retail price. In the mix here will be Freshman Fabrics (rookie memorabilia autos) as well as memorabilia cards with as many as four swatches — items such as sheet metal, tires, shoes and firesuits.
Finishing the season will be National Treasures (Oct. 26), which is a hobby-only product.
