Panini Rookies and Stars football is making its debut this week and while it’s no longer a retail exclusive, much of the content is headed there. The company has opted to sell boxes and packs of the long-running brand at Target stores, where it’ll be available in a few different types of packaging. However, the product made its debut Monday with a limited hobby run that was tied to a program available only through group breakers. Each six pack box offers 60 cards including two autographs and two memorabilia cards.
content available in those boxes included Crusade Gold (numbered to 10), Great American Heroes Gold (numbered to 10), Stellar Rookies Gold (numbered to 10), Dress for Success (numbered to 99 or less), Prime Cuts (numbered to 49 or less), Red & Blue parallels (numbered to 25), Black & Blue parallels (numbered to 10).
Each box will contain 22 inserts on average.
Longevity boxes, blaster boxes, fat packs (cello packs) and hangar boxes are hitting Target this week.
The Target packaging will include several different types of exclusives found only in those packs including:
Longevity (ten card, six-pack box) Exclusives: Crusade Orange (numbered to 25), Great American Heroes Orange (numbered to 25), Stellar Rookies Orange (numbered to 25), Longevity parallels (numbered to 70), Cross Training (numbered to 99 or less), Freshman Orientation (numbered to 99 or less).
