Panini America, one of the official sponsors for the College Football Playoff, has created some special on-site exclusive trading cards it’ll be distributing beginning later this week in Florida.
The company will have a booth at Playoff Fan Central inside the Tampa Convention Center from Friday through Sunday, then move to Raymond James Stadium for the Championship Tailgate, prior to the Alabama-Clemson title game next Monday night, January 9.
There will be three different sets for collectors to chase: an 11-card wrapper redemption set created in the style of the 1985 Donruss baseball set that includes a National Championship header card, ten cards featuring two legends from each of the four team in the playoffs and one card from each of the first two CFP champions. Collectors will receive the set for making a purchase of Panini trading cards at the events.
Visitors who participate in games at the company’s booth will receive two-card packs featuring Green variations of some of the same type of cards Panini has produced with its collegiate license that were sold as part of boxed sets. The CFP exclusives will feature former college stars such as Aaron Rodgers, Tom Brady, Peyton Manning, Bo Jackson, Dan Marino and Odell Beckham Jr.
Panini has also created four 5×7 cards in the style of its 2016 Donruss set that will be only handed out as prizes to fans and collectors who hit the jackpot in its Plinko game.
