We know there’s a rapt audience of football collectors anxiously awaiting Friday’s arrival of 2018 Contenders Football. Trust us when we tell you: We truly understand and appreciate your anticipation. We’re in the same boat. But since we’ve got a few days still to wait, now seems like a good time to preview another juggernaut product set to arrive in late March: 2018 Flawless Football. The grand finale of the 2018 NFL collecting season, this year’s Flawless Football — like each of those that have come before — is a spectacular high-end collecting tribute to the game’s top rookies, top veterans and all-time greats.

On average, each briefcase of 2018 Flawless Football (10 cards per briefcase, two briefcases per case) will deliver six autographs, two precious gem cards and two memorabilia cards. The product also includes a bevy of new autograph additions, including Laundry Tag Signatures, Rookie Dual Patch Autographs, Flawless Draft Gems, Super Bowl MVPs, Captain, Rookie Booklets, Veteran Booklets, Signature Gems, Flawless Duals and Super Bowl Gems.

In fact, if you’ve been watching our social media channels over the last few days, you may have noticed a few glimpses of some of the new additions in their unsigned form . . .

Additional highlights of 2018 Flawless Football are many and include . . .

  • All cards are numbered to 25 or less, all autographs are on-card or cut autographs and the product features more patch autographs and 1/1s than ever before.
