CARDBOARD REVIEW:2019 Panini Phoenix Football

It's amazing to me how fast this 2019 football season has gone. Felt like it was already yesterday when I first suited up in Giants blue jersey and hat and screamed at my television and now we are only weeks away from the playoffs.

As the football season winds down, so doesn't the NFL releases which puts me at a very sad place knowing my team isn't going to make the playoffs and knowing how much I love football cards.

One of the latest releases by Panini is 2019 Phoenix. Which is a product that has been around a few years now and one I rather like. I mean, who doesn't want another chrome-type product in their life?

I have yet to have much success with it, but hopefully this time? Let's check out how my break went below!

In every box of 2019 Phoenix football there are 12 packs with 5 cards per pack. You will also find 2 autographs and one memorabilia card per box as well. Boxes have dropped some in price and you can now find them roughly at $115.

BASE CARDS

The base cards are printed on chrome technology and are team color focused and single player focused. There are 200 cards in the base set split up between 100 veterans and 100 rookies.

The rookie card design is just a tad different than the base.

PARALLELS
Here is an overall view of the parallels in Phoenix
Silver, Color Burst, Fire Burst , Red /299, Pink /199, Purple /149, Orange /99, Yellow /75, Blue /35, Green /25, Black /10, Gold 1/1, and Printing Plates 1/1.

 Silver. It seems today collectors are chasing the basic silver parallels more than colored ones

 Pink /199

 Color Bust which fall one per box

 Purple /149

 Red /299

 Orange /99

 Yellow /75

INSERTS
Insert cards have the following parallels, Red /299, Pink /199, Purple /149, Orange /99, Yellow /75, Blue /35, Green /25, Black /10, and Gold 1/1.

 Adrenaline Rush

 QB Visoin

 QB Vision Purple of my boy Daniel jones! /149

 Comeback

 Rookie Rising....there he is again!

 Catching Fire

Catching Fire parallels. Moss is a red /299 and Fitz is a pink /199

HITS
I love the inclusion of legends of the game and this card sparkles like no other, however, I don't like player worn jersey material. Such a great looking card too!!

 The Michael Egnew of 2019, Hunter Refrow gets pulled often

Not a bad find here despite his very poor autograph showing. K'neal Harry has big time potential with the leagues best QB throwing to him.

Other hits not found in my box but could be in yours includes,
  • Rookie Autographs
  • Retired Signatures
  • Rising Rookie Material Signature
  • Veteran Autograph
  • Dual Patch Autographs
  • Triple Patch Autographs
  • RPS Memorabilia
  • RPS Jumbo Memorabilia
  • Veteran Materials
OVERALL THOUGHTS:
Solid effort again in this product. I didn't hit it too big once again but at least the Harry is a decent pull. I would like to see the veterans in this product have more game used stuff and not so much player worn stuff. The inserts were a tad bland for my liking as I feel they need to be upgraded some for next years edition.

Box price isn't terrible for three hits and some potential big ones. I like the addition of Veteran and Retired signatures as there are some great names on the list. I suggest at least getting yourself into a box break of this product if nothing else.

Wanna use a breaker, I strongly recommend using Midwest Box Breaks for your breaking needs. They are always hitting the big pulls so if they are breaking this, you could put yourself in a good spot. They also SHIP ALL CARDS! Get what you pay for!

SAVE 10% on your next break with Midwest!! Just use code SCCBLOG to do so. Don't miss out on those big hits any longer! Code ends at the end of the year!

Please thank Panini America and Tracy Hackler for providing this box for me to review to giveaway some of the hits in a BIG CHRISTMAS GIVEAWAY coming up soon!!! Please follow them on all social media sites and visit their website for all your card needs, HERE.

  2. I love shiny stuff... but overall... this product isn't for me. Way too many inserts that look too similar and probably could have been produced as subsets. If I find shiny Packers or Seahawks singles in a dime box, I'll grab them though.
