Much like an old set, 2016 Panini Classics Football has plenty of quirks and variations. However, unlike the past where a lot of these were created accidentally, here they’re intentional to add a chase element. While most are labeled on the front and fall under the modern parallel category, there are 40 2016 Panini Classic Football variation short prints that offer alternate photos.

While the majority of the 2016 Panini Classics Football variations are veterans, retired players and rookies are also included. Given how soon after the draft the set was released, rookies are featured in their college uniforms. Their pro teams are not mentioned.

Besides offering different photos on the front, variations can be spotted quickly by flipping through the card backs. Regular base cards have light black backs. Grain is clear. It’s a dusty sort of look. However, the variation short prints have a much deeper and crisper black.

In addition to the 2016 Panini Classic Football variation short prints, some of the other quirks you might find are cards with no name on the front, blank backs and glossy cards. These, along with Blue and Red Backs, are parallels.

    I wish Panini would add different Legends to their sets and stop using the same players over and over. How many collectors are pursuing John Riggins cards nowadays? Plus, Marino, Elway and Favre are showing up in every product Panini makes. Maybe they should make the legends cards a special insert and harder to get, then I wouldn’t mind pulling one from a pack or box.

    So does the creative staff at Panini just research past Topps products and adapt it to the current product line they are pushing? Sounds easy to me.

    I 100% agree, there are way to many legend cards in products today. If I want a card from a past player I will hunt down a card of them when they actually played because it will actually be worth something. All legends cards should be inserts like IamNotARobot said.

    That is wonderful for you Robert Kaufmann, but only you due to it being a 1/1.. I don’t mean to diminish the card you pulled, but I’m in agreement with the other 95% here, the current legends inserted in all the products currently basically make them worthless and pack fillers. Make them harder to pull and expand the checklist.
