The NFL season is here and Panini America has the bonus cards for you to show for it.
Its 2016 NFL Kickoff packs will be tied to two upcoming products — 2016 Panini Phoenix and 2016 Panini Prizm — and will be allocated to dealers for those product purchases. The packs are not to be sold but instead are intended to be bonus items for collectors.
The set will include 40 cards with a mix of veterans and rookies, which will be limited to 699 copies per card. Also in the mix will be autographs, parallels and memorabilia cards, according to the company. Among the memorabilia cards will be game-dated cards, Pro Bowl pylon swatches, Breast Cancer Awareness memorabilia, Rookie Premiere memorabilia cards and more.
The packs will arrive in October at the same time as Phoenix, which is a new Panini brand.
