2019 Panini Black Football Sees Brand Return as an Online-Exclusive


2019 Panini Black Football brings a past brand back, this time as an online exclusive. The last time Black made an appearance (excluding Black Gold and Black Friday) was 2013. As it was before, autographs and memorabilia cards are both focal points. In fact, the majority of each box falls under the “hits” category with a Rookie Patch Autograph, another autograph and a memorabilia card.

2019 Panini Black Football Overview

Every card in the product comes serial numbered with a print run of 75 or less.

This includes the base set, which has 120 total cards. The checklist breaks down further to 50 veterans, 30 rookies and 40 Rookie Patch Autographs, which have white signatures to contrast again the dark background. Base versions for all three levels have 75 copies.

2019 Panini Black has some other autograph inserts as well. Midnight Signatures are all one-of-ones. Shining Signatures are quite as scarce, but they do include ink from both veteran and retired players.
