If you’re looking for a last-minute holiday gift for that hard-to-please football collector on your list, Panini America might just have the perfect solution. On Wednesday, just two days before Christmas, the highly anticipated 2020 Obsidian Football arrives in hobby shops across North America awash in Optichrome excellence and some of the most attractive cards of the year.
The Obsidian Football franchise has wasted precious little time earning its place near the top of Panini America’s Optichrome hierarchy. From its devastatingly gorgeous RPAs and funky-cool inserts to the arrival of new — and spectacular — Color Blast Black chase, say this about 2020 Obsidian Football: It’s more than ready to push the envelope.
On average, each hobby box (seven cards per box, 12 boxes per case) will deliver four autograph or memorabilia cards, two parallels or inserts and one base card. The Color Blast Black and Contra SSPs fall roughly once per case, respectively.
In the must-see Quality Control Gallery that follows, we offer a revealing deep dive into this year’s release. Enjoy the sneak peek and stay tuned after the imagery for the complete product checklist.
2020 Obsidian Football will be available at the official online store of Panini America beginning Wednesday at 12 p.m. CST.
