2020 Panini Select Football Takes Collectors on Another Colorful Journey

Share:

If there’s such a thing in the modern hobby as a chromium set flying under the radar, Select might be it. But for how long? Like recent years, 2020 Panini Select Football has its large, tiered base set. Prizms are as plentiful as ever, including some unique patterns the brand is known for. Hits are also abundant, a trademark that helps differentiate Select from other chrome football lines like Prizm and Optic.

All told, 2020 Panini Select Football hobby boxes have a pair of autographs and a memorabilia card. Prizms total 15 per box including ten Silver.

2020 Panini Select Football Checklist Overview

The base set has 400 total cards. However, it’s not quite as simple and straightforward as that. It’s divided into four sections, each with a slightly different design and level of rarity. This is up from the usual three.

Concourse is the most common.

Although Zebra Prizms are not serial numbered, they are among the rarest parallels in 2020 Panini Select Football, landing approximately one per hobby case. Once the 400-card checklist is taken into account, numbers for specific cards should prove to be low.

Outside of hobby, there are some additional exclusives. 1st Off the Line boxes are the only place to find Neon Orange Pulsar (/7) and Tiger Stripe Prizms. These combine to land one per FOTL box.

Autographs, Memorabilia Cards and Other Inserts

First-year players figure heavily into 2020 Select’s autograph content.

Rookie Signatures Memorabilia Prizm uses standard-sized swatches. Prizm parallels include Blue (/75 or less), Purple (/49 or less), Tie-Dye (/25 or less), Gold (/10 or less), Green (/5 or less) and Black (1/1).

Jumbo Rookie Signatures Swatch flips the orientation on its side, delivering a significantly larger piece of memorabilia. White (/75 or less), Copper (/49 or less), Tie-Dye (/25 or less), Gold (/10 or less) and Green (/5) Prizms make up the main rainbow. There’s also four different one-of-ones: Black Prizm, Black Prizm Brand Logo, Black Prizm Laundry Nike, and Black Prizm NFL Shield.

Keeping with the oversized memorabilia theme but without the autographs are Jumbo Rookie Swatch Prizm. Parallels include White Prizm (/35), Tie-Dye Prizm (/25), Gold Prizm (/10), Green Prizm (/5), Black Prizm Brand Logo (1/1), Black Prizm Laundry Nike (1/1), and Black Prizm NFL Shield (1/1).
