Why The Release Of 2023 Panini Certified Football Might Surprise You

November 9, 2023

While it has never entered the ranks of the best-known Panini football products, Panini Certified Football has been around for a quarter of a century now.

It has undoubtedly established enough of a following to justify its long existence. The brand is best known for recreating the junk wax aesthetic with a 21st Century Twist. It also aims to deliver enough hits to justify a price tag of over $300.

So, does the 2023 version of this release attain these goals and give us what we crave? Our 2023 Panini Certified Football review will answer all these questions and more.

History of Panini Certified Football

In 1999, Leaf released its first version of the product. The 1999 Leaf Certified set had 225 card base cards, 50 of which were rookie cards. These early Leaf sets were hobby-only cards and were considered a high-end product at the time.

Two things really set these releases apart from the pack. First, the inclusion of the Freshman Fabric rookie cards. These were memorabilia-laden rookie cards. And their auto versions were early RPAs, well before they became very popular.

Their stature grew alongside that of the Leaf Certified line. To stress their importance, in 2003, Leaf changed the product’s name to Leaf Certified Materials. Second, they put a good deal of emphasis on the foil, leading to relatively simple but effective designs.

In 2010, Panini bought the rights to the Certified line. Panin tweaked the product somewhat, and they numbered every card. All cards in the release were numbered 999 or less.

The Panini version also stressed the Autographed Material Rookie Cards, the “Freshman Fabric” line, all numbered 699 or less.

Under Panini, these cards took a junk wax turn, which has made it a more distinctive product line. Since then, Panini has not messed with the formula all that much. It continues to feature annually on their schedule.

2023 Panini Certified Football release date

The 2023 Panini Certified Football Hobby Boxes release date is November 10, 2023. And let me say, that really isn’t so bad! The NFL season kicked off in September, and we are all still pretty excited about it.

Unless you are a Giants fan, of course, but that isn’t Panini’s fault. And they have been pretty good about this product throughout. In 2022, it came out on October 21st.

There is still some delay involved here. Panini Certified Football is traditionally a pre-season release. So, if you go back to 2020 and 2021, it was released in August of those years.

But considering how badly other Panini releases have been hit by delays since the supply problems of peak COVID, Certified fans should thank their lucky stars. It’s nice to be able to give Panini kudos on release times for a change.

Panini Certified Football 2023 release formats

Although not a high-end release or anything like that, Panini Certified Football has some of the pretensions of one.

For example, it has always been a hobby-only release and remains one today. Therefore, the only varieties you get are the regular hobby box and the FOTL. Let us take a look at both.

Hobby box

2023 Panini Certified Football pros

The Certified Football line has obtained a permanent spot on the release calendar through its beautiful designs. There is no question that the old-school “junk wax” aesthetic works and Panini makes the most of it.

The quality designs can be seen in every area. For example, there is a wonderful variety of parallels here. The inserts are primarily good ones that are a lot of fun to pull. It is also important to note that every Freshman Fabric RPA has a unique look, and it works.

There is a reason they are among the most beloved RPAs on the market.

The other advantage of this line is the guaranteed autos. Every hobby box has two guaranteed autos, more than many other products in the same price range.

2023 Panini Certified Football cons

The price is a real issue this time around. The 2022 Panini Certified Football hobby boxes initially sold for $175. That already had fans complaining since they do not traditionally view this product as one worthy of a significant outlay. In 2017, it was still selling for under $100 a pop. But the 2023 release is not far from double the price.

Is there an improvement in the hits justifying the increased price? In 2022, the hobby boxes included “1 Freshman Fabrics Signature, 1 additional autograph, 2 memorabilia cards, 3 numbered parallels, 10 inserts, and 2 rookie or rookie parallels per box on average.”

Meanwhile, Panini says the following of this release: “Find 2 autographs, 2 memorabilia cards, 10 inserts, 2 rookies, and 3 numbered parallels per box.” 

So, it’s essentially identical. But when you look a bit closer, the 2023 release is a bit worse since you no longer have a guaranteed Freshman Fabrics Signature.

If you want that, you need to spring for the FOTL. So, the price change certainly does not seem warranted.

Collectors have long complained that the Panini Certified Football autos are sticker ones. It seems a real shame when the designs are so appealing, especially the Freshman Fabrics Signatures, which are otherwise beautiful cards.

But that was understandable when these boxes were fairly cheap. But what excuse is there now when Panini Certified Football boxes are well over $300? Collectors may find themselves more willing to plunk a couple hundred on an on-card auto product instead.

2023 Panini Certified Football checklist

The checklist for the product is relatively short, even though this is a decent enough release for the set completion folks. You have a 200-card long setlist, split evenly between veterans and rookies. That is good news for rookie collectors.

2023 Panini Certified Football Inserts

We love Panini Certified Football inserts because they play on classic junk wax inserts, though often with bolder designs. But do they manage to keep up their traditionally high level in this regard? Let’s see.

Every year, Certified Football has an excellent graffiti-inspired insert as one of their offerings. But usually, they are common throw-away ones.

But 2023 goes a different direction and is far more difficult to pull than its earlier equivalents. The Bryce Young should be a particularly great one to pull.

We are definitely feeling the name of this insert. And as the concept would suggest, it focuses on the quarterbacks of the NFL.

But the design is pretty uninspiring, and aside from the great name, nothing sets this insert apart.

Night Moves

It is a popular case hit that usually appears in Donruss products. They tend to have good value because the Night Moves cards appear in one of every 3-4 cases.

Not everyone loves the Night Moves designs because they are subtle. But I think they work. Having said that, the Certified logo doesn’t work incredibly well on these cards.

If you are under 40, the design for this card will mean nothing to you. If you are well on your way to getting an AARP membership card, you will remember this background from the immortal “Saved by the Bell show.

Are the adventures of Zak and Screech what you want to have in mind when collecting rookie cards? Honestly, why not?

Panini Certified 2023 Football autos

The autos are what this release is all about. Especially the RPAs in this release, such as the Freshman Fabric Signatures. This product provides two signatures per box, many of which are valuable and unique. Let’s get an idea of what is on offer in 2023 Panini Certified Football.

Freshman Fabric Signatures 

The main selling point for this release is these RPAs, numbered to /399 or less. The parallels are mirror-themed, giving them more of a reflective tinge.

It’s a nice touch but doesn’t change the cards all that much. There is such a deluge of RPAs on the market today. And we are always happy to land one. But many of them don’t have much personality.

Meanwhile, the Freshman Fabric Signatures have a unique look that colors the fabric reminiscent of a pattern, much like a refractor. But word of warning: these cards aren’t particularly valuable even though they are popular.

I couldn’t find a single example of one of these selling for over $400 in the last three months on eBay. Indeed, very few of them went for over $200. I think they are somewhat undervalued, but the market decided, not me.

Freshman Fabric 2023 Panini Certified Football Jaxon Smith

Canton Certified Signatures 

No one wants to get a veteran signature out of a product like this. But if you are going to pull one, it might as well be a Hall of Famer, right?

The Canton Certified Signatures series gives you an excellent roster of those enshrined in Canton, Ohio. They are also numbered lower than their Freshman Fabric Signatures counterparts, starting at /149.

As you would expect, the value of these cards is not exceptionally high. Though some people are charging exorbitant fees for them, I couldn’t find a sale for over $150 in the last few months.

Stitches in Time

The main memorabilia-only line in Panini Certified Football. The cards come in dual, triple, and quad versions this year and look particularly good.

Sadly, they stole the name from Upper Deck, who has a great series of this name. The cards in this series tend to be beautiful, and if you are lucky, you could even hit one with an NFL shield.

2023 Panini Certified Football value

As we saw from the checklist, there is no shortage of beautiful and highly cool cards you can pull from 2023 Panini Certified Football.

But the problem is that when the rubber hits the road, people don’t seem willing to pay all that much for cards from this product. There is a serious problem of underperformance.

And considering that Panini has made this a pretty expensive release, that problem is more acute than ever. Let’s crunch the numbers.

Shop for boxes of 2023 Panini Certified Football on eBay

Panini Certified Football wax

Panini Certified is considered more of a rip than a hold. But sometimes products like that offer a good chance of a profit because people don’t stash them as much. Having said that, with the prices for a box of 2023 Panini Certified Football now higher than ever, how do the values hold up?

2019 Panini Certified Football Hobby Box$225
2020 Panini Certified Football Hobby Box$625
2021 Panini Certified Football Hobby Box$375
2022 Panini Certified Football Hobby Box$545

Were you expecting the boxes to be worth significantly less than the current price? Yeah, me too. But no, because of the popular hits in the boxes and successful aesthetics, boxes of Panini Certified Football do better than you might expect.

That means that at previous prices, these were a pretty good hold. But Panini took care of that by almost doubling the price. So now, you are likely to break even or make a slim profit by holding on to one of these boxes.

Panini Certified Football singles

What about single cards? Panini Certified is a classic rip product with a lot of cards and a few nice guaranteed hits. So, the question is, is it a worthwhile rip? Analysis of the inserts and autos suggested it is not. But let’s take a more systematic approach and look at a few top recent sales.

2017 Panini Certified Football Mirror Orange Patrick Mahomes II RPA RC Patch /99 (BGS 9)$4,051
2022 Panini Certified Football Brock Purdy Rookie Auto /50 Teal #RS-BP (PSA 10)$3,000
2020 Panini Certified Black The Greatest Tom Brady Buccaneers 1/1 (PSA 10)$2,247
2020 Panini Certified Football New Generation Jordan Love 1/1 Laundry Tag (Raw)$900
2020 Certified Football Mirror Blue Justin Herbert Jersey Patch Auto Rookie Card 1/20 (Raw)$900

These are some of the biggest cards I could find on eBay. There are quite a few cards worth over $1,000 for this release. But they tend to be Patrick Mahomes and Brock Purdy rookie cards.

Very few of anyone else. There isn’t too much money in most of these cards, including most RPA’s. That wasn’t too bad with the old prices because there was a good chance you would make back your money; the rising cost of boxes makes that less likely.

Final word on 2023 Panini Certified Football

When I saw that the price for the new boxes was significantly higher than before, I was skeptical about the value of the 2023 Panini Certified Football release.

Certified had never been considered much of a money maker before. But now, with prices almost doubling, it appeared sure to be a bust. But the truth is, that is not the case.

If you stash a box of this product, you may not be on the road to riches, but you are unlikely to lose money. And with higher prices, you are less likely to make back your money by ripping. But the odds aren’t terrible, either.

Plenty of mid-level cards in this release should get you your money back.

In sum, 2023 Panini Certified Football is a meh financial investment. I’ve seen worse. That may sound bad news, but if you love the designs and RPAs in this release, that isn’t bad. It means you can spring for a hobby box relatively guilt-free.
