2021 Onyx Vintage College Football Checklist and Details


In past years, collecting cards of football players typically begins after they’re done. A couple of exceptions have existed, but not much. That doesn’t matter much now as rules governing collegiate players are evolving and now current players can be in football card sets. Enter 2021 Onyx Vintage College Football. It has the same general look and feel of other releases for the brand, however there’s one major difference. Rather than being a draft-style product, the checklist centers on athletes still in the midst of their collegiate careers.

Hobby boxes have four cards, two of which are on-card autographs.

2021 Onyx Vintage College Football Checklist Overview

In some ways, the prospecting aspect of the set could take years to take shape. In others, there’s also something very current about it. With active players on the checklist, there will likely be up and down movement based on collegiate accomplishments. Think of it as much like the market moves when pros get hot or stumble below expectations.
