On average, each hobby box of 2017 Vertex Football (eight cards per pack, three packs per box, four boxes per inner case, two inner cases per master case) will deliver four autographs (including two on-card autographs with one being from the Capstone rookie/veteran/legend mix) and two memorabilia cards.

- Two autograph inserts that are true 1/1s: Number Ones features autographs from players who were drafted No. 1 overall in the NFL Draft and One of a Kind features signatures of top NFL superstars.
