2021-22 Panini Kaboom!

Panini Kaboom! Series

When Panini launched Kaboom! cards, they went for broke. These cards stand out from pretty much any prior issues in sports cards. That said, many collectors weren't initially fans of the Kaboom! series. Fast forward to today and they are among the most desirable modern cards for collectors. And in some cases, these Kaboom! cards can dominate over some of the Rookie Patch Auto (RPA) cards that have been issued. In the world of sports card collecting there are no absolutes. But what is an absolute is that Kaboom! cards have become harder than ever for a true collector to accumulate.

Generally released as short printed inserts, typically about one per case, Kaboom! has its roots as a basketball inserts way back in 2013. In 2018, Kaboom! was introduced in Panini's NFL line through Absolute. Since then, Panini has added the series to its soccer and baseball lines as well. Panini used these cards in a variety of brands during its debut including Innovation, Excalibur and Crown Royale.

How Rare Are Kaboom! Cards?

Unfortunately, it's not easy to pull a Kaboom!. As mentioned above, these cards have appeared in several iterations, but they're typically the case hit for the product, so pulling them takes extreme luck. So yeah, they're pretty rare. Additionally, the 2021-22 Kaboom! Panini Player of the Day series is more rare due to the fact that they were released in packs that were given away at the The National Sports Collectors Convention. Even the most avid collectors don't know about the secret Kaboom! series yet!
