Scheduled to arrive just ahead of Super Bowl 57, 2022 Panini Zenith Football will make its return, offering a few nods to the old Pacific Trading Cards brand.
Each box will contain a single six-card pack. A typical pack will hold one Rookie Patch Autograph, one additional autograph, one base card, one rookie card and two inserts.
The base set is fairly hefty—and at the pack insertion levels, it’ll be tough to put together for the few who might try. The set includes 242 cards, with 100 rookies and 100 veterans plus 42 RPAs that are being included on the base set checklist.
Base card parallels for both veterans and rookies will include:
Base Artist Proof Silver #’d/50
