Panini is continuing its college-based theme with the release of the 2021 Panini Chronicles Draft Picks.

With a limited number of collegiate products each year, Chronicles combines many of the brands that don’t have a full release and puts them together for one massive all-encompassing product that exhibits the true mish-mash college experience.

Between all the available lines and brands, hobby boxes include four total “hits” across six packs, three of them being autographs. Every pack also averages a pair of opti-chrome cards.

This release is expected for July 2, 2021, with a total set size of 400 cards across all the brands. Each Hobby box will include 6 packs and 8 cards per pack, the same goes for the FOTL (First off the Line) release.

First off the Line boxes will be exclusive to the Panini Website.
