We estimate that 1000 cases were produced. While this is more than double the previous year's product, the number of boxes in a case was cut in half from eight to four, leading to an overall slight production increase.

2023 Panini Elite Extra Edition was released March 27th, 2024. As usual, the product focuses on recent draft picks and prospects, and can be seen as Panini's answer to Bowman Draft.

Each five-pack Hobby box will yield two game-used memorabilia cards and eight autographs.

2024 Topps Big League is a 310-card set released March 27th. The base set is tiered into five levels, with the scarcest ten-card Legendary tier packed out as case hits.

Each eight-card pack will yield one tiered base card and an insert.

2024 Topps Tribute was released March 27th. As usual, each three-card pack will include either an autograph or a Relic with half of packs yielding a Relic and half either an autograph or an autographed Relic. Two of the Relics in each Hobby box will be multi-swatch.

2023-24 Topps Dynasty was released March 22nd, 2024. As usual, each box will contain an encased autographed patch card serial-numbered to ten or fewer.

Because this product was released so far into 2024 -- almost a full month after 2024 Topps Series One -- BCP does not consider it a "2023" product.
