2018 Panini Certified Football CardsBrand: Certified
The long-running NFL brand continues with 2018 Panini Certified Football. Every Hobby box averages four hits including one Freshman Fabric autograph.
While the overall format and style are reminiscent of the 2017 set, the 2018 product features new micro-etch parallels.
2018 Panini Certified Football Base / Inserts
Starting us off, the 2018 Panini Certified Football base cards offer a full run of Mirror parallels, including the base Mirror (#/499), plus Orange (#/225), Red (#/99), Blue (#/50), Gold (#/25), Purple (#/10), Green (#/5), and Black (1/1) Mirror versions.
Among the inserts, Certified Champions draws attention to the players to win titles in the NFL as well as at earlier points in their careers.

Rookie Roll Call signatures, numbered to 99 or less, increase the rookie totals even further, with Red (#/75 or less), Blue (#/50 or less), Gold (#/25 or less), Purple (#/10 or less), Green (#/5 or less), and Black (1/1) versions. More first-year stars are found in the Rookie Auto micro-etch parallels, which are limited to 25 or less.

Highlighting additional stars, the extensive Mirror Signatures lineup features as many as 100 players. These cards (and parallels) are limited to 50 copies or less. Featuring league superstars, Gold Team signatures are even rarer at 10 copies or less for up to 20 subjects.
