2016 Panini Diamond Kings Baseball largely sticks to the basics with several artistic variations that match the overall feel of the product. While the SP image swaps have become quite common these days, the 2016 Panini Diamond Kings Baseball Variations don't go overboard and just focus on all-time greats, young studs and the top rookies of the year.
As the full list was included on the final checklist, we know there are 15 subjects for collectors to track down and we will look to add the images for each as quickly as possible. However, because the cards are quite similar and feature the same parallels for both vase and variations, it might be a few days before all of the variations can be identified.
It is also important to note that the variations are not all that rare in comparison to the base versions and this is further made clear given that both types have the exact same parallels.
If you have a variation card that is not included below, please email us directly with a clean scan of the card and any other info.
