The football season is nearing its end but football cards are still dropping fast and furious.
One of the latest from Panini is Gridiron Gear. It’s a nice solid mid range product that will run you about $75 on ebay and gives you 4 hits in 18 packs with 8 cards a pack. When you are done you have a pretty nice stack of cards.
This is another one of those Panini products I wish they would just call Panini football. It’s a nice offering and I really think it would go over very well as a “flagship” release.
A solid design. Once again the Panini designers use the team colors in the design, something I love.
They also have a mess of foil “X” parallels. These are OK and add a little something for player collectors to chase.
They also have base rookies.
They mix it up with a slightly different design, a design I like more than the base. It looks a little like this years Elite. They also have the foil parallels. I have been pulling D Moore in just about every product this year, not that I am complaining.
Once again a little different form the typical veteran base. On the veteran the “X” is negative space, and on the rookies the “X” is foil.
A surprising low number for a Panini set.
The base design works well to drop a round relic right in the middle, very well done. This is a prime piece but is a single color. They can’t all be multi color. You can tell by the texture of the piece it’s either for number or name.
I was really excited to pull this guy.
Ever since his first auto’s hit earlier in the season I wanted one, and now he is mine. A card is so such sweeter when pack pulled. I will point out his signature got cut off a little on the bottom of the sticker, but I am still cised. Raiders unis sure look good on cardboard don’t they?
I also pulled a redemption for a rookie auto of Bills RB Johnny White.
I dig the set and it was a fun break.
