In today’s NFL, you rarely ever find “zebras” being met with rave reviews and open-arms welcomes. But in the case of Panini America’s fabled Select Football franchise, the zebras always win the day. Always. Indeed, it’s amazing what can happen when you mix an exotic printing pattern — like zebra stripes — with Optichrome technology. The sublime results that debuted last year — spectacular Zebra Prizms — return in full force for 2019. But that’s just one of the many highlights collectors will discover when 2019 Select Football arrives in hobby shops and on group-break sites across North America on Wednesday.
On average, each hobby box (five cards per pack, 12 packs per box, 12 boxes per case) will deliver two autographs, one memorabilia card, 15 Prizms (including five numbered Prizms), six inserts, 24 Concourse base cards, 10 Premiere Level base cards and two Field Level base cards. In addition, the popular XRC Redemptions return and fall roughly one every four boxes. Once again this season, there will be XRC Mystery Autograph versions. Oh, and those aforementioned Zebra Prizms fall roughly once per case.
In the must-see Quality Control Gallery that follows, we offer an expansive sneak peek of the product, including a few images of the 1st Off The Line-exclusive Orange Pulsars and Tiger Prizms. Enjoy the preview and stay tuned for additional coverage.
2019 Select Football will be available at the official online store of Panini America beginning Wednesday at 10 a.m. CST.
