Panini America 2017 Phoenix Football QC115

Panini America’s Phoenix Football product rose onto scene as a debut release last season boasting some of the shiniest, most-vibrant trading cards of the year.

Set to arrive in hobby shops across North America on Wednesday, 2017 Phoenix Football delivers, on average, two autographs, one memorabilia card, 12 parallels, 12 Rookie Cards and nine inserts in every hobby box (five cards per pack, 12 packs per box).
