Memorabilia and autograph cards highlight 2017 Encased Football

Football card collectors looking for autograph and memorabilia cards don't have to look any further than 2017 Encased Football, set to be released in February.

Following a 2016 premiere that featured studio photography of the game’s top rookies and graded cards hard signed by those same top rookies, Encased Football introduced a hit-heavy jolt to the 2016 NFL trading card roster. It plans to do it all again when 2017 Encased Football arrives in hobby shops in February.

On average, each hobby box of 2017 Encased Football (five cards per box, eight boxes per case) will deliver, on average, two autographs (including one graded by Beckett Grading Services), two memorabilia cards and one base card. The BGS-graded autographs will include cards from the Rookie Endorsements, Dual Swatch Signatures, Scripted Signatures, Rookie Notable Signatures or Rookie Cap Patch Autographs inserts.

Highlights of the product include:

• Rookie Cap Patch Autographs return with swatches from the official on-stage 2017 NFL Draft caps featuring a bigger jumbo swatch and on-card auto.

• A plethora of on-card autographs and autographed jersey cards from rookies, veterans and legends of the game, all sequentially numbered to 99 or less; look for the return of autographs paired with an inscription from 2017 rookies.

• Jumbo patches from 2017 Pro Bowl players like Ezekiel Elliott, Dak Prescott, Travis Kelce, Tyreek Hill, Alex Smith, Odell Beckham Jr., Von Miller, Drew Brees, Justin Tucker and more.
