The 2017 edition of Panini America’s fabled Contenders Football franchise — annually one of the most anticipated trading card releases of the NFL season — will enjoy its national release just two days after Christmas. But some collectors will have the chance to gain access to the product just a little bit earlier. Beginning at 10 a.m. CST today, Panini America will open the preorder window for the exclusive “1st Off The Line” version of the product that features one exclusive Red Zone base parallel card one hard-signed Red Zone RPS autograph per box.

The Red Zone parallels and autographs are exclusive to “1st Off The Line” boxes and will replace one autograph and one parallel in each box. Collectors who preorder 2017 Contenders Football “1st Off The Line” boxes will receive their boxes between 24 and 48 hours prior to the product’s national release date.

You can find additional details on 2017 Contenders Football here. On average, each hobby box will deliver five or six autographs. Below are a few preview images of the “1st Off The Line” exclusives.

All “1st Off The Line” programs are available exclusively through the Panini America online store and through the Panini Direct app.
