Quickly ascending to the top of the hobby, 2015 Panini Immaculate Football features a high-end look at the NFL that has emerged as a key option for collectors. With premium designs, low-numbered hits and quality relics, Immaculate Football has a price tag to match. While this cost of entry is prohibitive for many, there is still a lot for collectors to chase.
Immaculate Collection is a brand from Panini that has been extended across several sports. Returning from its gridiron debut in 2014, the sophomore effort appears to be even stronger. Headlined by on-card autographs and quality relics, Immaculate sits in a rare group of super-premium options. However, one point of contention is that product does still feature sticker autographs. At this price point, that is difficult to accept but it does appear that most of the key subjects are found with hard-signed content.
Like all premium releases, the official rookies command a huge focus and that trend continues in Immaculate Football. Numbered to 99 and pairing an on-card signature with a small patch, these rare rookie cards - Rookie Patch Autographs (RPA) - will remain relevant as long as the players do. This includes top options like Todd Gurley, Marcus Mariota, Jameis Winston and Amari Cooper.
Immaculate Signature Patches and Premium Patches Autographs are additional on-card choices that have seen good interest based on the impressive look and key subjects from the past and present.
Although the signed cards are typically high on the collecting radar, memorabilia cards are also heavily featured in the release. Among the most striking, Immaculate Rookie Laces, Rookie Helmets and Immaculate Logos each display large relic pieces and feature a low print run.
Because boxes are around $350-400 for a six-card box, this is not a product that is feasible for many collectors. However, purchasing singles can be a much more affordable option and it allows collectors of almost any budget the opportunity to collect Immaculate Collection cards, even if it is just base cards. To give collectors a great snapshot of what is creating the most buzz online, the following list highlights the 50 most-watched auction currently on eBay. The guide is constantly updating so check back or bookmark the page to view the top Immaculate cards at any point in time.
