The Panini America Quality Control Gallery: 2018 Select Football (130 Must-See Images)

Panini America 2018 Select Football Baker Main

There’s an undeniable swagger about Panini America’s Select Football franchise that commands attention from collectors. From the vivid colors to the preponderance of striking autograph and memorabilia combinations to the exotic Zebra parallels to the XRCs to the eclectic autograph checklist to so much more, there’s just a lot to admire about the way Select Football conducts itself every year. And trust us when we tell you, 2018 Select Football is no different.

Set to arrive in hobby shops across North America on Wednesday, each hobby box of 2018 Select Football (five cards per pack, 12 packs per box, 12 boxes per case) will deliver two autographs (including one Jersey Autograph), 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 and the aforementioned Zebra parallels fall just once per case.

Panini America Brand Manager Wes Elliott helped oversee the packout process for 2018 Select Football last week and was nice enough to photograph a little bit of everything he saw for the express purpose of the following Quality Control Gallery. Enjoy the extended preview and stay tuned to The Knight’s Lance for additional coverage.
