For the last week or so Panini has been teasing that they have created the longest card ever for their upcoming NT football release.
I think it’s kinda funny. Obviously bragging about length is funny on a very basic, sophomoric level.
Let me get that out of the way.
It’s also funny because it’s kind of a silly thing to brag about. I mean this in a very benign and non-mocking way, but I didn’t realize length was something we looked for in cards.
The reveal on their blog today was fun. I think that’s what this is all about. I think its supposed to be a little tongue in cheek.
The actual card is comprised of signed patches of a mess of NFL rookies. It’s kinda badass as far the content. There are two different version, one just signed and one with inscriptions. I pulled a few of the pieces of the booklet card from their blog to share.
A nice design on it’s own merit. I like the big chucks of numbers they used on most of these. The inscriptions are all “Go (insert team name)” or similar variations such as this one.
For a second it looked like he wrote “Raider Dalton”. I thought maybe he was Roadhouse fan.
The card is over 8 feet long. In the video they have on their blog it shows it all folded up and stacked. It would easily fill the better part of 600 count box.
I would be excited to pull one, but wouldn’t seek one out. Booklets just aint my thing.
It seems like Panini is having a good time lately. Buisness must be good.
