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.

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.
