Panini America 2017 Playoff Football Mitchell Trubisky Blue

Panini America officials triumphantly ended a 22-year hiatus for the Playoff Football base brand by returning the product to the marketplace for the first time since 1994. Equipped with many of the niceties that spelled success for the product in those early years, 2016 Playoff Football won over many collectors with a compelling mix of affordability, old-feel inserts, and robust autograph and memorabilia checklists. The product resonated enough with collectors to ensure that it wouldn’t be another two decades before the next edition.

Set to arrive in late November, 2017 Playoff Football picks up where last season’s return left off, with key inserts such as Rookie Stallions, Air Command and Thunder and Lightning. The company also will use the Playoff platform to once again preview upcoming products such as 2017 Contenders Football and 2017 Donruss Optic Football.

On average, each hobby box of 2017 Playoff Football (eight cards per pack, 12 packs per box, 20 boxes per case) will deliver one autograph, one memorabilia card, 12 Rookie Cards, 20 inserts and four parallels.

The highlights of the product are many and include . . .

  • Rare 2017 Contenders Football Preview Autographs featuring the stars of the 2017 NFL Draft numbered to 23.
  • Rare 2017 Donruss Optic Football Rated Rookie Autographs cards of the top 2017 rookies.
