2018 Panini Flawless Collegiate Football is about as high-end as it gets for NCAA football collectors. The premium 10-card-per-box format only consists of autographs, memorabilia cards and gemstone cards.
Matching the 2017 release, that means six autographs, two relics and two gems in each box, including past Heisman Trophy winners and All-Americans. Collectors can count on only on-card autographs or cut signatures with print runs capped at 25 copies.
2018 Panini Flawless Collegiate Football Gemstones
Not just an average base card, 2018 Panini Flawless Collegiate Football sticks with the Flawless style of embedded gems. The Base 3.0 design comes in Diamond (#/20), Ruby (#/10), Sapphire (#/8), Emerald (#/5), or Oversized Diamond (1/1) versions.
Adding on-card autographs with the gem for 2018 rookies, the Flawless Rookie Gems Signature cards, numbered to 25 or less, make a strong impression. These offer Ruby (#/20 or less), Sapphire (#/15 or less), Gold (#/10 or less), Emerald (#/5 or less), and Black (1/1) parallels, as well.
There are also the all-new, one-of-one Flawless Player Team Gem cards that highlight the school logo using multiple gemstones.

Of course, leading the 2018 Panini Flawless Collegiate Football checklist are the hard-signed Rookie Patch Autograph cards showcasing some of the best first-year NFL players in their college gear. Premium parallels display Conference Patches, Bowl Game Logos or Brand Logos.
More on-card content for rookies comes in Rookie Team Slogan Signatures and Flawless Dual Signatures, which also features non-rookie pairings.
If you want college legends, check Premium Ink for choices like Barry Sanders, Bo Jackson and Lawrence Taylor.

The majority of the hits mentioned above are issued in Base (#/25 or less), Ruby (#/20 or less), Sapphire (#/15 or less), Gold (#/10 or less), Emerald (#/5 or less), and Black (1/1) editions.
