2019 Panini Impeccable Football cards are sticking with a lot of the things that worked for the relatively new brand during its early years. From a content standpoint, that means on-card autographs are a focal point. Looking at the designs, “Elegance” isn’t just a name for some of the product’s key subsets. It’s something the set goes by. Cards have some artistic influence with their color splashes, but there’s also plenty of white space on many of the cards to keep things from get too cluttered. It’s also a very unified look throughout not only this checklist, but other Impeccable Football sets as well.
Overall, 2019 Impeccable hobby boxes have eight cards, five or which are autographs.
2019 Panini Impeccable Football Base Set Basics
One of the few places you won’t find a white backdrop is in the main base set. Instead, these cards flip it around and go with lots of black. Base cards are numbered to 75 with parallels in Silver (/25), Gold (/10), Emerald (/5) and Platinum (1/1).
Elegance Rookie Helmet and Patch Autographs (/75 or less) bring some of the more unique Rookie Cards of the year. While other sets have autograph and patch combinations, Impeccable adds a piece of helmet to the combination. Instead of basic color changes, parallels for these are based on the memorabilia: Helmet and Namplate (/25 or less), Helmet and Glove (/15 or less), Helmet and Team Logo (/10 or less), and Dual NFL Logo (1/1).
Elegance isn’t just for first-year players. Elegance Retired Patch Autographs (/75 or less) reach to the past. While these don’t have the two memorabilia pieces that the rookies do, they do have one over-sized swatch. Parallels are available in Silver (/25 or less), Gold (/15 or less), Emerald (/5 or less) and Platinum (1/1).
Additional autograph inserts featuring NFL legends include Immortal Ink (/50 or less), which are on canvas stock, and First Ballot Signatures (/25 or less).
More autograph memorabilia cards can be found in Extravagance Patch Autos (/49 or less) with Silver (/25 or less), Gold (/10 or less), Emerald (/5 or less) and Platinum (1/1) parallels.
Masterstrokes return with their colorful backdrops. Limited to 25 copies or less, these are among the scarcest cards in the product.
Among the new additions in 2019 Panini Impeccable Football is Canvas Creations (/49 or less), which create a collage with multiple images of the player. Rarer versions are available in Silver (/25 or less), Gold (/10 or less) and one-of-one Platinum.
Impeccable Impressions and Rookie Landscape are other new autograph inserts in the product.
Inkpeccable Autographs are where collectors will find multi-signature cards. These are available as Duals, Trios and Quads.
Silver and Gold Medallion Cards
Every three-box case of 2019 Impeccable Football has a card with a one-ounce medallion of real silver or gold. Themes for these include Silver Super Bowl, Silver Hall of Famers, Silver NFL Shields, NFL Top 100 Duals and NFL Top 100 Quads.
