The vibrant, colorful world of football cards is about to get a whole lot more of both. On Friday, Panini America’s 2019 Spectra Football arrives in hobby shops and on group-break sites across North America boasting a bevy of new tweaks, headlined by a robust and history-making tribute to Tom Brady, the introduction of the rare Psychadelic parallel, the return of the popular Super Bowl Champion Signatures and the continuation of the Pro Football Hall of Fame Autographs cut-across insert.
Those are “spectracular” additions to be sure, especially for a brand as perennially powerful as Spectra. But that aforementioned Brady tribute is likely to resonate most with hardcore fans and collectors as it includes the legend’s first-ever autograph inscriptions (we offer a comprehensive gallery of those in the Quality Control Gallery that follows).
On average, each hobby box of 2019 Spectra Football (four cards per pack, four packs per box, eight boxes per case) will deliver four autographs, six memorabilia cards, five base or parallel cards and one insert. One box in each case, on average, will be a “reverse box” featuring six autographs and four memorabilia cards.
The new Psychedelic parallel is numbered to five or less and new inserts Masked Marvels and Rookie Aura will fall just once per box, on average. The revealing imagery that follows details a little bit of everything that 2019 Spectra Football has to offer. You can access the complete product checklist here.
Enjoy the gallery and stay tuned for additional information.
