2016 Panini Immaculate Collegiate Football Details


2016 Panini Immaculate Collegiate Football has a lot of the same high-end elements as other pro sets under the brand. That means lots of autographs and memorabilia and not much else.  Five of the six cards in each box are hits.

2016 Panini Immaculate Collegiate Football Premium Patches Autographs


2016 Panini Immaculate Collegiate Football has a mix of on-card and sticker autographs. The simply titled Autographs have signatures from several generations of players. Immaculate Ink cards are all hard-signed. According to Panini, the top-level checklist for these is limited to all-time greats. Immaculate Numbers Autographs focus on 2016 draft picks and are numbered to the player’s college jersey number.

On the autographed memorabilia front, Premium Patches include a large swatch to go with the signature. Sports Variations, which come with basic autographs and autographed memorabilia versions, feature players from other sports like baseball and basketball.

Memorabilia Cards

The Panini portfolio has several high-end brands. In its relatively short history, Immaculate has focused largely on memorabilia. In particular, it has honed in on pieces of gear that might not normally make it into cards or done in a way that’s a little different. 2016 Panini Immaculate Collegiate Football is no different, although it does so with more player-worn gear than NFL, NBA and MLB sets may use. These have player-worn portions as well but veteran content in these is often based off game-used pieces.

As far as memorabilia cards from outside the norm, RPS Rookie Player Caps have a jumbo swatch from a hat worn by a 2016 draft pick at the NFLPA Rookie Premiere. Immaculate Gloves is another set focused on 2016 NFL rookies. Collegiate Helmet Team Logos feature stickers from the headgear.

As far as multi-swatch cards go, 2016 Panini Immaculate Collegiate Football has Immaculate Quads. These have gear from four players who attended the same school.

Base Cards

Panini has yet to announce much info for the base set beyond the fact that there’s one base card or parallel per box.

    For some reason, most of the insert sets have not yet been posted to the online checklist (e.g. Jumbos Relics). Would appreciate getting the whole release posted!
