By Ryan Cracknell | Hobby Editor

Baseball, football and basketball — the USC Trojans athletic program has helped develop big stars in several sports. 2015 Panini University of Southern California trading cards dig into that history with a simple set.

While the base set is where the majority of the content is focused, there are autographs and memorabilia cards as well. Retail boxes come with two total while blasters have one.

Base Set

2015 Panini University of Southern California has an 80-card base set. Randy Johnson, Frank Gifford, Mark McGwire, Fred Lynn and Mark Sanchez are among the notable names on the checklist. Also included are a handful of cards dedicated to the school itself as well as some of its traditions and facilities.

All base cards come with three parallels: Gold (/99), Silver (/25) and Black (/10).


Honors is a ten-card insert set focused on Trojan award winners.

Autographs are found in Signatures. The checklist is limited to just six names: Nelson Agholor, Matt Barkley, Marqise Lee, Carson Palmer, Silas Redd and Malcolm Smith.

The Memorabilia portion of the product is a little bigger with ten cards. Players include Sanchez, Lee, Palmer and Leonard Williams. These come with swatches of player-worn jerseys.

Parallels can be found for all of the hits and inserts. These are numbered to 99 or less.

    Ryan- I checked with Panini and was told that the USC set has an 80 card base set. Probably, historically, the deepest of the collegiate offerings by Panini so far.

      Thanks! Got it in the body text but still had 50 like most of the others in the breakdown. It is definitely one of the biggest. Off the top of my head, I think there’s one that’s a little bigger but only by a couple of cards.

    Ryan- University of Florida has 85 cards in their base set. Alabama also has 80 cards for their base. Hope this helps!
