2019 Panini Certified football marks the return of a familiar name to collectors. This year’s edition is scheduled to arrive July 24.
Each box will have ten packs with five cards in each. A box break should yield one Freshman Fabric plus one additional autograph, two memorabilia cards, two rookie cards/parallels and three other parallels along with a mix of other insert and base content.
Certified’s calling card is the Freshman Fabric Signatures, which will feature jumbo swatch pieces with an autograph. There will be short printed parallel versions and others with an NFL Shield in place of the standard uniform patch. Look for one Freshman Fabric Mirror Signatures per box with team logos, nameplates, and one-of-one NFL shields from the 2019 rookie class. Base versions will be numbered to 499 with several other parallels numbered as low as 1/1.
New for 2019, look for Rookie Signatures Mirror Etch, all numbered to 25 or less.
There will be veteran, oversized-patch autograph cards in Fabric of the Game Signatures that will have prime and super-prime versions. All will be numbered to 199 or less.
Established Autographs is a new subset that is focused on veteran stars. These will be numbered to 99 or less.
Mirror Signatures are numbered to 99 or less with seven parallels numbered as low as 1/1.
Gold Team inserts will have autographed versions featuring current and past greats. They’ll be rare with cards numbered to 10 and 1/1 Black versions.
New Generation Jerseys feature oversized memorabilia swatches. Look for prime, team logo and laundry tag versions on the 100-player checklist.
Base cards will have Mirror versions numbered to 450 (veterans) and 299 (rookies). Colored parallel versions will be numbered lower and there are several on the checklist.
