2015 Panini Luxe Football features all on-card autographs


2015 Panini Luxe Football Memorabilia Auto Prime

By Ryan Cracknell | Hobby Editor

After debuting in basketball last season, football is getting the Luxe treatment. 2015 Panini Luxe Football is a high-end release with three autographs — all on-card — and one jumbo memorabilia card per hobby box.

Every card in 2015 Panini Luxe Football is serial numbered to 99 copies or less.

This is the first Panini football product to have autograph cards with metal frames. 2014-15 Panini Luxe Basketball used them. They have also been a staple in Topps Museum Collection products for a few years. Rookies, veterans and retired stars all have framed autographs.

Die-Cut Autographs take a different design approach. Still hard-signed, these cards are shaped differently.

All memorabilia cards not only have large swatches, but they’re premium pieces as well. Luxe Memorabilia Prime highlights top players and are numbered to 25 or less. Rookie Memorabilia Die-Cut Prime cards are limited to 49 copies or less.

Luxe Memorabilia Autographs combine most of the product’s primary elements. They’re signed on-card, come with a large swatch and come in a frame. Prime parallels are numbered no higher than 25.

    I think the day I collected cards was fun for kids. I get sick when I see what the card industry and you all have helped create. It’s a tragedy. It has nothing to do with collecting, and everything to do with gambling. I subscribed to Beckett in the mid 80’s early 90’s. I was damn proud of those price guides and good info. I went to every card show that came to town. Things have gone to hell, and it’s sad.

    Thank you Frank! Every time I see a company offer a $500.00 pack of cards, or see a company try to monopolize all of the sports in the hobby, it makes me sick! I just bought a $4.99 rack pack of Upper Deck series 1 Hockey cards. I got 32 beautiful cards with a great design for a reasonable price… no silly jersey cards- which have been so overdone the last decade- no special colors( see Prism) but just wonderful cards to collect.
    These opportunities are going fast- special thanks to the ultra-ultra-ultra brands for ruining my hobby!

    Frank, sports card collecting is still fun for everyone……. Everyone. I have been collecting since 1957 and have been in “the business” for over 30 years. Nothing stays the same. I have seen the hobby evolve and from my view, there is very much good and very little bad.

    Not everyone is looking for the same thing in this great hobby and the manufacturers have given collectors a very wide array of products. Retail Blaster boxes can be found as low as $10 per box. Hobby boxes with hundreds of cards per box are as low as $39 per box. And, they are still fun to open.

    At your local card shop, you can meet fellow collectors face-to-face and arrange to trade, buy and sell in order to satisfy your collecting needs. Internet trade sites allow you to fill-in needs you can not find locally. Card Shows are still a fun place to meet more collectors. Card collecting is truly a community, now more than ever.

    Sure, there are many high-end products which may be out of the financial reach of most hobbyist. However, most people can afford to buy singles or trade for many of these high-value amazing looking cards. At the same time, if you don’t want to collect these high-end cards, there are many, many other cards for you to choose from. Take a step back. Look at all the great cards available and collect what you like. Card manufactures have given us all the opportunity to make collecting what we want it to be. There is something for everyone.

    You could also get a Supee Bowl I ticket for $10… Now tickets are $1,000 if you are lucky enough to get them at face… Times have changed.

    I miss the early 90s to the early 2000s, the hayday of card shows every weekend, and it was fun to go and get packs and talk to the dealers you knew, now, you would be lucky to find a show, and everything is so overpriced its not even funny, I miss the old days, and I hope one day it comes back

    Well said Charlie. As collectors, may of us do get frustrated at times with the escalating prices and Ultra high end products that only a few can afford. But evolution happens, and though we may sound like Goose Gossage at times, we still love the hobby and we change with it or we move on. Such is life.
