Panini America 2015 Prestige Football Jameis Winston

Since making its NFL debut way back in 1998, the Prestige Football brand — like Peyton Manning, Charles Woodson, Randy Moss and the other headlining members of that heralded 1998 rookie crop — has produced a Hall of Fame-worthy career earmarked by more than a decade of consistent excellence. For irrefutable proof of that fact, consider this: Eighteen years later, Prestige Football remains a collecting staple.

That promises to be the case once again this season when 2015 Prestige Football arrives in early July equipped with updated Rookie Cards featuring draft picks in their college uniforms, on-card autographs from late-May’s 2015 NFLPA Rookie Premiere and the tried-and-true brand fixtures that have endured — and endeared — for almost two decades.

Each hobby box of 2015 Prestige Football (eight cards per pack, 24 packs per box) will deliver three autographs, one Rookie Jumbo Patch card, one foil-etched Jumbo Draft Pick box-topper, 24 Rookie Cards, four Rookie Photo Variations and 13 additional inserts from a lineup that includes Franchise Favorites, NFL ShieldRoad to the NFL, Draft Big Board, Blue Chip Recruits, Draft Picks, Prestigious Picks and Super Bowl Heroes.
