2016 Panini National Treasures Collegiate Baseball Details
2016 Panini National Treasures Collegiate Baseball is the second release for the brand over the course of the card season. And while the main release focuses on players as pros, depicts players from when they were in school.
This being National Treasures, the focus is on the super premium. That translates into six total autographs and memorabilia cards per eight-card box.
Much of the insert names and themes have been used before. For autographs, there are Team Logos and Signature Die-Cuts. Both are hard-signed. Notable Nicknames also make the college jump. These have both a signature and an inscription of the player’s moniker.
Signatures is another autographed insert. These have stickers. These are numbered to 25 or less.
On the autographed memorabilia side, Colossal Signatures get their name for the swatch size. There’s also College Baseball Material Signatures, which have smaller pieces of memorabilia. Combo Player Signature Booklets open up to have a couple of different swatches and a signature. Prime versions come with patches. Among them is a Team Logo parallel.
Game-used college jerseys and gear can be tough to come by. But that’s what’s used in College Game Worn. Mark McGwire, Buster Posey, Robin Yount and Barry Larkin are among those on the checklist.
Gem-embedded Flawless cards are also part of 2016 Panini National Treasures Collegiate Baseball. Ruby, Sapphire and Emerald versions are all limited to no more than 20 copies. There are also Diamond parallels that are one-of-ones.
The 2016 Panini National Treasures Collegiate Baseball checklist is a mix of generations. Current veterans, 2016 rookies and retired players are all included in the product.
