The 2020 Panini Select set is a popular release each spring, well known for unique designs, variations and die-cut cards. Die-cut cards are printed and then cut by a machine, usually to highlight the design of the card. Autograph cards and jersey cards are also a big draw for collectors.

“It’s always nice to have the opportunity to examine a card signed by a Hall of Famer like Joe Montana,” said Westin Reeves, CSG Senior Modern Grader. “As the CSG Registry shows, building sets by favorite player is a popular way to collect. A card like this Montana one is a great addition to anyone’s collection.”

Joe Montana finished his career with 273 touchdowns and 40,551 passing yards, winning the Super Bowl in all four of his appearances. Montana was a 3rd Round Draft Pick from Notre Dame in 1979. He played 13 seasons with the San Francisco 49ers before joining the Kansas City Chiefs for two seasons. Montana was elected to the Hall of Fame in 2000.
