Alabama & Clemson headline Panini’s College Football Playoff sets


We’re a week away from a rematch between the Alabama Crimson Tide and the Clemson Tigers in the College Football Playoff — and we’re less than a week away from the newest college football cards from Panini America.

No, you haven’t missed any First Buzz previews — we’re talking about promo cards for those attending the big game.


The company will have a presence at the Playoff Fan Central at the show inside the Tampa Convention Center and then outside Raymond James Stadium during the lead-up to Monday night’s game.

There will be a wrapper redemption program with an 11-card set styled like the 1985 Donruss baseball set. It includes 10 past stars for Alabama, Clemson, Washington and Ohio State — a mix  of Hall of Famers and current stars like Warren Moon, Derrick Henry, Sammy Watkins, Julio Jones and Ezekiel Elliott. 

In addition to this, it will have prize cards for those who play games at the company’s booth. There will be a four-card Rated Rookies set with Dak Prescott, Carson Wentz, Henry and Elliott in 5-by-7 form as well as a 25-card set of green variation cards in the style of its team set releases of the last two years with notable players from many programs. You can see all of them below.
