2020 Panini Gold Standard Football Autographs / Relics
For most, the 2020 Panini Gold Standard Football checklist really boils down to the hits. Among the signed options, first-year players are heavily featured. The Rookies Autographs (#/199) set supplies a signed base version for the first time, as well as Rose Gold (#/25 or less) and Black (1/1) parallels.
In addition, the Rookie Jersey Autographs line includes single-relic, double-relic and triple-relic editions to track down. These have Prime (#/49 or less) and Tag (1/1) parallels. First Off the Line boxes contain one RPA version numbered to 22 copies.
Promising “more rookies than ever before,” other rookie-heavy sets include Golden Boots, Golden Gloves and Golden Nuggets.
Those looking for non-rookie autographs also have some choices. Highlighting all-time greats, Gold Scripts (#/99 or less) utilizes gold ink while Gold Jacket Signatures (#/99 or less) focuses solely on Hall of Famers at their induction.
Double Standard (#/25) is a dual-autograph insert that pairs a variety of NFL standouts with a shared past.
In addition, fans can chase the elusive Super Bowl Diamond Signatures (#/5) cards featuring a real diamond and a former champ’s signature, or the “ultra-rare” Golden Shield Signatures cards with an oversized piece of football displaying the NFL logo.
Lastly, the 2020 Panini Gold Standard Football memorabilia assortment provides Gold Gear, Gold Rush, Golden Pairs, Hall of Gold Threads, Mother Lode and White Gold relic cards. These come in limited Prime (#/49 or less) and Premium (1/1) parallels, as well.
