Panini America 2018 Select Football Main

One of the many admirable qualities about a product as tried, as tested and as trusted as Panini America’s Select Football is that it doesn’t require much in the way of revamps or overhauls from year to year to remain in demand. Indeed, a slight twist here or a subtle tweak there can make a big difference and, in Select’s case, can make for some chase-worthy new Prizm parallels — including the wild new Zebra Prizm. That’s likely the first thing longtime Select collectors will notice about 2018 Select Football, which arrives in hobby shops across North America in late February.

Indeed, although just about everything collectors have come to know and love about Select Football returns in 2018 (including the vaunted 300-card, three-tier base set, autograph memorabilia rookies, a stacked memorabilia roster and more), it’s the Zebra-striped parallel falling roughly once per case that’s certain to stand out. On average, each hobby box of 2018 Select Football (five cards per pack, 12 packs per box, 12 boxes per case) will deliver two autographs, one memorabilia card, 14 Prizms (at least five numbered), 30 Concourse base cards, 10 Premier Level base cards and two Field Level base cards. In addition Select’s popular XRC Redemption Cards return at a rate of roughly three per case.

The highlights of 2018 Select Football are many and include . . .

  • Autograph memorabilia cards of the top 2018 rookies in Prime Selections Signatures, Jumbo Rookie Signature Swatches and Rookie Signature Memorabilia numbered to 199 or less. Find multiple color variations including the new White & Blue Prizms.
  • A star-studded roster of veteran and retired autograph and memorabilia content in the Signature Memorabilia Prizm insert.
  • Memorabilia sets include Jumbo Rookie Swatch Prizms, Select Swatches and the spectacular Sparks Prizms. Look for jumbo memorabilia cards featuring Nameplates, Brand Logos, Nike Laundry Tags and NFL Shields.
  • XRCs for the 2019 NFL Rookie Class falling roughly three per case; also find XRC Mystery Prizm Autographs.
  • In addition to the aforementioned and new Zebra Prizms (one per case), parallel fans can also find new Base Concourse White Prizms (numbered to 75), Base Field Level Red Prizms (numbered to 49), Signatures/Rookie Signatures Maroon Prizms (numbered to 75 or less), Signature/Rookie Signature Memorabilia Blue Prizms (numbered to 75 or less) and Jumbo Rookie Signature Swatches White Prizms (numbered to 75 or less).
