Set for release just prior to the holidays, 2017 Panini Preferred football returns with an “all hits” format and a bounty of book cards.
At least one Silhouette or Rookie Silhouette autograph is guaranteed per hobby box with oversized jersey patches combined with an autograph. There are Super Prime and NFL Shield Patches numbered to 5 or less.
Expectations are high for this year’s draft class and 2017 Panini Preferred football will feature 40 different cards featuring autographs from members of this year’s draft class via the Great X-Pectations subset.
Preferred will lean heavily on the booklet cards with several themes in play.
- Armory booklet cards return with six swatches on cards that are rookie-focused.
- Game of Inches are booklet cards featuring two oversized swatches highlighted by what Panini calls “an amazing play being made by a NFL superstar.”
- Championship Fabric booklets showcase players who won titles and include a large swatch of material.
There’s no immediate word on pricing. 2017 Panini Preferred football has an expected release date of December 6. You can see sample images in the gallery below.
