The Basics: Each box will include just six cards — a base card or parallel atop the hits. There will be on-card autos of guys who will be NFL rookies this season along with pieces of team logos, jersey numbers, laundry tags, cleats, chin strap snaps and gloves, which make their brand debut here. There also will be autographs from 10 other basketball and baseball stars worked into the mix on cards limited to no more than 99 copies. The Numbers autos will be limited to players’ jersey numbers, while standard autographs will have parallels as rare as one copy for the Platinum version. … Also in the mix here will be helmet logo jumbo cards. … Immaculate Ink will include top names, while Premium Patches will offer memorabilia and ink from recent stars. … On the memorabilia side there will be player cap cards and quads that piece together alumni as well as players with similar positions. These will have logo versions as rare as one copy. … Boxes will carry a suggested retail price of $400.
