It seems rather fitting that Panini America’s new 2019 Phoenix Football arrives in hobby shops across North America tomorrow, just days after Cardinals rookie quarterback Kyler Murray — in the desert not far from Phoenix, no less — delivered arguably his best performance to date. As a result of Murray’s blistering 340-yard, three–TD showing in a 34-33 victory over Atlanta, he’ll likely have Phoenix Football rising this week, too.
But he’s just one of many scorching rookies whose significant autograph and memorabilia presence will bolster the product. Combine that with the colorful aesthetics and a healthy dose of star veteran and retired-player content and you’ve got all the trappings of a Phoenix that is most definitely ascending.
On average, each hobby box of 2019 Phoenix Football (Five cards per pack, 12 packs per box, eight boxes per inner case, 16 boxes per master case) will deliver two autographs (including one RPA), one memorabilia card, 12 parallels, 12 Rookie Cards and nine inserts. Look for one Color Burst parallel per box and one Fire Burst parallel per inner case.
RPAs this year will be printed on Optichrome stock and company officials also have added base autograph Rookies as well. We offer a deep dive into the product with the Quality Control Gallery that follows. Enjoy the sneak peek and stay tuned for additional details.
2019 Phoenix Football will be available at the official online store of Panini America beginning tomorrow at 2 p.m. CST.
