Short Report: Panini America Reveals More SPs, SSPs in 2016 Contenders Football

January 20, 2017


Panini America’s ballyhooed 2016 Contenders Football arrived in hobby shops two weeks ago to a ready-and-waiting collector base that has spent the last 14 days in a wrapper-ripping, Rookie Ticket-revealing frenzy. That’s certain to continue in the weeks ahead as the many Contenders completists work on building their sets, with one eye always on the set’s various variations and short prints.

Two weekends ago we started sharing early information in an effort to clarify or demystify some of the set’s SP and SSP mysteries. You can check out our first SP update here and our second SP update here.

    C’mon guys! 99 or less tells us very little. How about less than 25, or at least 50?

    I don’t think I ever seen so many variations in one release before. When I get off work, I’m going to have to go back & check my boxes again.
