2020 Panini National Treasures Football Details
2020 Panini National Treasures Football does what every NT set does. It goes to the edge of the high-end with a comprehensive mix of autographs, memorabilia and other premium elements.
This year, hobby boxes have at least six hits including three autographs.
2020 Panini National Treasures Football Checklist Overview
While autographs and memorabilia cards are the centerpieces of every National Treasures release, there is a base set to kick things off. The shell set consists of 100 veterans and stars from the past.
Base versions have the traditional numbering to 99. Parallels include Purple (/50), Red (/35), Holo Silver (/25), Holo Gold (/10), Emerald (/5), Printing Plates (1/1) and Platinum (1/1). There’s also Jersey Number versions with print runs that match the number worn by each player.
Of course, there’s the Rookie Patch Autographs. Armed with on-card signatures, jumbo patch pieces and print runs no higher than 99 copies, these traditionally become a player’s most valuable Rookie Card.
RPA parallels come in:
- Green Jersey Number – /97 or less
- Holo Silver – /25 or less
- Midnight – /20 or less
- Holo Gold – /10 or less
- Black – /5 or less
- Printing Plates – 1/1
- Platinum NFL Shield – 1/1
- Red – 1/1
- Red Laundry Tag – 1/1
Autographs, Memorabilia Cards and Other Inserts
Rookies, veterans and retired players are all represented on the 2020 National Treasures Football checklist when it comes to autographs.
Crossover Rookie Patch Autographs (/99 or less), look to 2010-11 National Treasures Basketball for their design. Holo Gold (/25 or less), Brand Logo (/2), Laundry Tag (1/1) and NFL Shield (1/1) versions are also available.
The Future (/25) and its acetate layout return for another year. This is another place to find rookie ink.
There’s also the new Rookie Signatures Field Pass (/99 or less) that go big with their photos and have on-card autographs. Parallels include Gold (/25 or less), Holo Silver (/10 or less), Black (/5), Printing Plates (1/1) and Platinum (1/1).
Rookie Jumbo Prime Signatures (/99 or less) are done as booklet cards, opening up to have a massive swatch on one side and the player’s autograph on the other.
Colossal Signatures (/49 or less) is one of the places with veteran and retired players. These are highlighted by over-sized swatches and premium parallels like Prime (/25 or less), Brand Logo (/2 or less), Printing Plates (1/1), Laundry Tag (1/1) and NFL Shield (1/1).
Teammates and their signatures are paired up in Gridiron Graphs Dual.
Treasure Chest Signature Booklets (/5 or less) open up to reveal a dozen autographs.
New autograph themes in 2020 Panini National Treasures Football include Prodigy Patch Autographs and Signature Treasury.
Super Bowl Immortality is a new insert for 2020. While they may not have signatures or swatches, they are short prints. The focus is on top players from some of the biggest games in Super Bowl history.
Although six hits are expected in each 2020 National Treasures hobby box, according to Panini, most have more.
