Week 3 of the 2019 NFL season kicks off tonight when the Jacksonville Jaguars host the Tennessee Titans and if it hasn’t been abundantly obvious to you during the first two weeks, the country is once again in its customary football frenzy. We do our best here at Panini America to fan the flames of that frenzy with some of the sweetest trading card products on the planet. But for the purposes of this particular post, we’re going to get into something that’s just a little more sticky.
Indeed, Panini America’s Official 2019 NFL Sticker & Card Collection deserves its time in the promotional spotlight, too. Especially this year, when the popular annual collection has added trading cards — as well as a host of other new bells and whistles — to the mix. And if you’ve yet to immerse yourself in the brilliant stickiness of the product, well, get ready. You’re about to.
Here’s what you need to know about this year’s edition:
- First things first: The 2019 NFL Sticker & Card Collection features 558 stickers and, for the first time, 100 traditional trading cards (we’ve included a complete checklist to both the sticker collection and card collection at the end of this post).
