2016 Panini Pittsburgh Panthers Collegiate Trading CardsBrand: Panini Collegiate
2016 Panini Pittsburgh Panthers Collegiate gives fans the opportunity to collect prominent athletes from their illustrious playing days at Pitt. Each blaster promises one autograph or one memorabilia card.
Highlighting the football portion of the 50-card base set are two legendary NFL players who started their careers at the now-defunct Pitt Stadium. In addition to their college success, Dan Marino and Tony Dorsett are both enshrined in the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Other outstanding football stars include Darrelle Revis, Dion Lewis, Larry Fitzgerald, LeSean McCoy, and Tom Savage.
Particularly notable, in 1976, Dorsett was named Sporting News Player of the Year, became an All-American for the third time, and earned the Heisman Trophy. All of the awards for Dorsett happen to be the primary focus of the Honors insert, which pays respect to the most decorated alumni.
Although football is a major component of 2016 Panini Pittsburgh Panthers Collegiate, the men’s basketball team is not overlooked. Memorable stars reflecting Pitt’s success on the court include Aaron Gray, DeJuan Blair, and Steven Adams.
Adding a more unique wrinkle, it is rare when a woman is included in a multi-sport set. However, when you are the university's all-time leader in minutes played, hold the fifth all-time record in points and assists, and become the second player in Pitt history to be selected in the WNBA draft, you are the exception. This is exactly why former women's basketball star Brianna Kiesel can be found among the base cards.
Outside of the player-focused cards, collectors can find those that document Panthers' sports history. The main set is also enhanced with three limited parallels, including Pittsburgh Silver, Pittsburgh Gold, Pittsburgh Black. Finally, 2016 Panini Pittsburgh Panthers Collegiate offers two hit options: Autographs and Memorabilia cards.
While it is a relatively small set, 2016 Panini Pittsburgh Panthers Collegiate is part of the larger Panini college line.
