For those NASCAR fans looking for a deep dive into memorabilia as well as a large lineup of autographs, there’s 2019 Panini Prime Racing. The high-end release has six hits in each box, which are split evenly between signatures and relics.
2019 Panini Prime Racing Overview
On-card autographs are a key component throughout the checklist. According to Panini, Prime has the most hard signatures for a NASCAR set this year.
Among them is Shadowbox Signatures (/99 or less), which highlight 20 of NASCAR’s best. Holo Gold (/25 or less), Black (/10 or less) and Holo Platinum Blue (1/1) make up the parallel lineup.
Separate NASCAR Shadowbox Signatures come with a different design. Rather than using colors for the parallels, these have different background themes. Car Number are the most plentiful with 99 copies or less.
Others include Sponsor (/25 or less), Manufacturer (/10 or less) and Team Owner (1/1).
Additional autograph themes in the product include Clear Vision Signatures and Legacy Signatures.
The variety of Prime’s memorabilia content comes through in both the types of things that are used and the way they’re presented.
Clear Silhouettes (/99 or less) integrate a layered die-cut look using oversized pieces of gear. Parallels include Holo Gold (/25 or less), Black (/10 or less) and Holo Platinum Blue (1/1).
Prime Jumbo represent some of the biggest swatches in the product. Covering nearly the entire card, the pieces feature a variety of patches and notable pieces from things like firesuits, shoes and gloves.
And then there are the inserts that combine signatures and memorabilia.
Autograph Materials (/99 or less) are on-card and have pieces of race-used tires embedded in them. Holo Gold (/50 or less) and Black (1/1) versions are also available.
Quad Materials Signatures (/99 or less) get their name from using four pieces of memorabilia. Collectors can also find Holo Gold (/25), Black (/10) and Holo Platinum Blue (1/1) parallels.
Base Set Basics
2019 Panini Prime Racing isn’t just autographs and memorabilia. A base set goes with it. Divided into three section, base cards are numbered to 50. Tough parallels land in Black (/10), Emerald (/5) and Platinum Blue (1/1).
Base cards and parallels combine to fall one per hobby box.
