Panini America Provides Detailed First Look at 2018 Prizm Football (Preview Gallery)

August 27, 2018

Panini America 2018 Prizm Football Josh Allen Disco

If you believe in that whole “seven-year itch” theory as it relates to relationships, well, we have good news: The supposed urge to bail out after that many years together shows absolutely no signs of holding true when it comes to Panini America’s vaunted Prizm Football franchise. Indeed, as the product prepares to launch its seventh annual edition in late October, collectors seem just as in love with the product now as they were during that historic first release of 2012.

Of course, a lot has changed in the six years since. The Optichrome technology looks better than ever. So many more parallels have been added to the rainbow chase. Creative inserts have been designed specifically to take advantage of the Prizm finish. So as Panini America Product Development officials prepare 2018 Prizm Football for release, you can bet they’re equipping it with enough new tweaks to keep the relationship with collectors exciting.   

On average, each hobby box of 2018 Prizm Football (12 cards per pack, 12 packs per box, 12 boxes per case) will deliver three autographs, nine numbered Prizms, 24 Rookie Cards, four inserts and one base or rookie Prizm parallel. The hobby-exclusive Rookie Patch Autographs chase returns this year and features Purple Power (numbered to 50 or less), Gold (numbered to 10) and Black Finite 1/1 Prizm parallels. On average, Rookie Patch Autographs fall once per case.

Additional highlights of 2018 Prizm Football include . . .

  • Find an appealing array of new inserts including Trifecta, 2018 HOF Tribute, Grit and Apex to join established chases such as Rookie Introductions, Instant Impact, Hype and Illumination.

  • Die-cut parallels are back for both base and Rookie Cards, with hobby-exclusive Light Blue and Orange parallels.
  • The popular Stained Glass insert returns with its colorful design and a star-studded checklist; look for rare Gold Mojo (numbered to 10) and Black Finite 1/1 parallels.
