Panini America 2017 Contenders Optic Football QC Gallery1

No matter how long you’ve been collecting Panini America’s fabled Contenders Football franchise, you’ve never seen a Contenders quite like this. That’s because there’s never been a Contenders quite like this. From the moment Pittsburgh Steelers rookie receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster teased the existence of 2017 Contenders Optic Football in an early January Instagram Story, the buzz has been building. In two short days, the collecting world will get to see firsthand what all the buzz is about.

From its Prizm-powered foundation to its classic Contenders content, there’s a lot to like about the inaugural edition of Contenders Optic Football. On average, each six-card hobby box will deliver two autographs (including one on-card), and one parallel numbered to 199 or less. Longtime Contenders loyalists will appreciate the Contenders Tribute Autographs chase that features Optic recreations of some of the brand’s most iconic Rookie Cards.

You can take a crash course in 2017 Contenders Optic Football in the must-see Quality Control Gallery that follows. Enjoy the early look and stay tuned to The Knight’s Lance for continued coverage.

You can order 2017 Contenders Optic Football starting Wednesday at the official online store of Panini America.

    You can’t just slap prizm finish on anything an have it sell, that’s just lazy lack of creativeness.
