Panini America Provides Detailed First Look at 2018 Gold Standard Football (Gallery)

April 28, 2018


Hundreds of years from now, hobby historians may indeed be debating whether or not this is the Golden Age of football collecting. Regardless the verdict, credit Panini America’s Gold Standard Football franchise for doing its part to make it so. From its bold beginning back in 2011, Gold Standard Football has always lived up to its name by delivering an unmistakeable gold theme and, in many cases, real gold. Those driving factors return once again in 2018 Gold Standard Football.

Set to arrive in mid July, 2018 Gold Standard Football will deliver, on average, five autograph or memorabilia cards in every seven-card hobby box (12 boxes per case), including one Rookie Jersey Autograph numbered to 99 or less. The Rookie Jersey Autographs chase includes rare Prime and Tag parallels signed in gold and white ink.
