Feel the Intensity with Panini’s Obsidian Football

Clashes between division rivals provide some of the most exciting moments of the NFL schedule. The matchups have playoff and bragging-rights implications, making them ultra important. As a result, ankle breakers sting a little more, every tackle and sack feels more demoralizing, and touchdowns become even more meaningful. Fans are more invested and the players lock in to put on magnificent displays. 

Panini’s Obsidian Football franchise returns to celebrate the flair and passion behind those intense matchups, boasting its trademark blend of dark Optichrome aesthetics, funky-futuristic inserts and some of the most attractive cards you’ll see.

In 2023, the Cowboys went 5-1 against their NFC East foes, thanks in large part to the play of game-changers Ceedee Lamb and Micah Parsons. Lamb stepped up with 641 yards and five touchdown receptions while also running for a TD in division play.

Rising star Jordan Love held it down for the Packers in his first stretch against the NFC North, totaling 1,644 yards and 15 touchdowns against the Lions, Vikings and Bears.

Find signatures from those prolific performers and others as you chase for Obsidian’s always-popular SSPs such as Black Color Blast, Vitreous and Volcanix. They can also be found while you hunt for your favorite colorful Electric Etch parallels across the 242-card base set, including Purple, Orange, Green, Yellow, Contra, Red, Tri-Color Mojo and Blue Finite.

Part of the beauty of these rivalries is the respect shared by the greatest players in the matchups, especially when their careers are all said and done.  Obsidian Football 2023 features signatures from legends who always gave that extra oomph against their biggest challengers. That batch includes the lion-taming Brett Favre as well as Champ Bailey, Antonio Gates, Hines Ward and Julius Peppers.  

The stars of the 2023 rookie class also came well-equipped to thrive in these fierce rivalries, etching their names in the minds of opposing fans. 

The Rams’ Puka Nacua proved he was a mismatch from the jump, putting up 119 yards and 147 yards against the Seahawks and Rams, respectively, in Weeks 1 and 2. 

In Atlanta. Bijan Robinson scored his first career touchdown during the season opener against the Panthers. Seattle’s Jaxon Smith-Njigba followed a similar pattern, finding the end zone for the first time against the Cardinals in Week 7.

You’ll have a plethora of opportunities to collect autographs and memorabilia from those first-year stars along with other top newcomers in Rookie Jersey Autographs, Rookie Jersey Ink, Rookie Eruption Materials and more.  Dazzling young quarterbacks have cards in 14 inserts, including Base Rookies, Equinox, Orbital, Tunnel Vision, Cutting Edge Memorabilia, Atomic Materials and more.
