The Panini America Quality Control Gallery: 2021 XR Football

December 01, 2021

Panini America’s mysteriously named, masterfully designed 2021 XR Football drops in hobby shops across North America tomorrow boasting its usual impressive array of colorful, content-rich enticements. But this year’s version also includes a few new twists — none more impressive than the Gamers insert featuring game-worn memorabilia from specific NFL games.

On average, each hobby box (seven cards per pack, two packs per box, 14 boxes per case) will deliver two autographs, one memorabilia card, one insert and four parallels; find 1/1 autographs roughly once per case. Additional highlights of the product are many and include . . .

  • Look for the new Base X and Rookie X short-printed parallels. These
    parallels are not numbered and are found only one per case, on average.
  • Chase brand-new inserts with Impending Greatness and Vintage Moments.
  • Hunt for new Gamers memorabilia cards and autographs featuring only game-worn memorabilia.
  • A staple of XR Football, look for a 1/1 autograph falling roughly once per case.

Enjoy the Quality Control Gallery that follows and stay tuned for additional coverage. 2021 XR Football will be available at the official online store of Panini America beginning Wednesday at 11 a.m. CST.
