Panini America’s Black Gold brand is changing gears for its next release.
The previously solicited 2016 Panini Black Gold Collegiate was set to arrive as a multi-sport set on July 27 with four autograph or memorabilia cards per two-pack box. Now, it will be a football-only release with the same case price and suggested retail price but with better content for what the company calls an “extremely limited release.”
It will arrive on July 29 with every pack including one base card or parallel limited to no more than 99 copies, one metal card limited to no more than 199 copies and three autographs or memorabilia cards limited to no more than 199. There will be at least one on-card auto per pack. Each box will now include as many as four autographs and three memorabilia cards.
Because of the changes, each eight-box case will now include an on-card auto of Jared Goff or Carson Wentz as well as an autograph of Ezekiel Elliott or Derrick Henry.
In addition it will include two autos from the group of Braxton Miller, Corey Coleman, Dak Prescott, Joey Bosa, Laquan Treadwell or Paxton Lynch as well as two autos from C.J. Prosise, Christian Hackenberg, Cody Kessler, Jacoby Brissett, Josh Doctson, Kenyan Drake, Michael Thomas, Sterling Sheppard, Tyler Boyd or Will Fuller.
Among the current and past NFL players to be found with autos in this one will be Aaron Rodgers, DeAndre Hopkins, Eric Dickerson, Hines Ward, John Elway, Marcus Allen, Richard Sherman, Rod Woodson and Roger Staubach.
