Panini America’s hallowed Contenders Football franchise will hit the field tomorrow with a locked-and-loaded 2019 edition utilizing those fabled calling-card elements that have made the brand one of the most popular in the history of modern sports cards. Boasting those juggernaut Rookie Ticket Autographs and a plethora of desirable parallel versions, 2019 Contenders Football is dressed to impress when it hits hobby shops and group-break sites across North America tomorrow.
On average, each hobby box of 2019 Contenders Football (six cards per pack, 18 packs per box, 12 boxes per case) will deliver five autographs (including at least one on-card), one parallel and 18 inserts per box. To be sure, Contenders Football has a proud legacy that dates back to the 1990s and has certainly delivered its share of landmark singles throughout its vibrant 25-plus-year run.
Heck, the last decade alone is worth writing home about . . .
