A card celebrating the standout Chargers quarterback looks phenomenal in CSG’s newest holder.

In modern sports card collecting, one of the most anticipated releases is the Panini National Treasures Football set. The set is popular with collectors due to the large quantity of autographed and memorabilia cards it contains. As patch cards and booklets have grown in popularity, the National Treasures set seeks to push the envelope with each new release.

CSG adds to its depth chart with Thick Holder

Thanks to the CSG Thick Holder, collectors can now choose to have thicker collectibles like Panini National Treasures cards certified and encapsulated by CSG.
