2021 Panini Obsidian (Check Price)
Panini Obsidian is without a doubt one of the coolest designs coming in 2022. The cards feature dark overtones with a layout style reminiscent to that of the Gold Standard collection. In addition to the layout, Obsidian also shares the quality of exclusivity with Gold Standard. For example, each box comes with just one pack that contains only 7 cards. Before you starting screaming RIP OFF, you should note that out of those seven cards four will be either feature autographs or memorabilia. Additionally, you’ll get 2 parallels or inserts and one base card. Talk about all killer no filler! Speaking of inserts, the highly coveted Color Blast Black is back for another year and is sure to be on of the most popular (and valuable) cards in the set.
Expected Release Date: February 2nd, 2022
2021 Panini Limited (Check Price)
With one Panini Limited hobby box including 3 packs with 5 cards in each, the name of this collection rings true. While that may seem like very little cards for the price, you’re gonna find 2 autographs, 1 parallel, 1 2000 Limited Tribute, and 1 patch card per box. So if you’re not a fan of base cards this is an upcoming release you’ll need to consider. Just like the previously released Panini Black, Panini Obsidian, and Panini Gold Standard collections, the hefty price per card may very well prove worth it.
