The NFL is in a period of transition. Some of the league’s longtime players are close to their final acts, and it’s been fun to witness the changing of the guard with younger players bringing new flair and pop to the game.
Panini’s Absolute Football returns to capture the vibrant arrival of the game’s next crop of superstars.
The 2023 Absolute Football collection features all the inserts you know and love, including Rookie Premiere Materials Autographs, Jumbo Memorabilia cards, fan-favorite Kaboom! (vertical and horizontal), Explosive, Glass case-hit chases and so much more.
Absolute has long had a reputation for delivering a stunning assortment of
memorabilia cards, and the 2023 edition takes things to another level with Tools of the Trade, Ground Hoggs Materials and the fabled Pro Bowl Souvenirs inserts.
Be on the lookout for signatures from the high-octane 2023 NFL rookie class. It was a first year of dreams for both Puka Nacua and Sam LaPorta, with each setting NFL rookie records. Other electric intros were produced by Bijan Robinson, Jaxon Smith-Njigba, Zay Flowers and Jahmyr Gibbs. Their signatures are up for grabs in the collection.
The league’s next wave of quarterbacks highlights the live autographs in the collection and also features veterans. Playoff field generals Brock Purdy and Jordan Love lead the charge. Aaron Rodgers, Love’s predecessor in Green Bay, is also in the autograph mix.
Other big names include Justin Jefferson, Deebo Samuel, Kenny Pickett, Russell Wilson, Tyreke Hill, Justin Herbert and Trevor Lawrence.
Unforgettable superstars from eras gone by, like Lawrence Taylor, Bo Jackson, Tony Dorsett, Bob Lilly and Darrell Green, provide some of the key signatures that are sure to add a wow factor to any collection.
A trio of quarterbacks who did their share of damage in the NFC and left the game with Super Bowl rings are also among the famous retirees in the fold. Drew Brees, Kurt Warner and two-time champ Eli Manning have signatures in the mix, too.
Lastly, cards of star rookies can also be found in non-auto inserts: Rookies Spectrum, Kaboom!, Jumbo Jersey Number, War Room Materials, Rookie Force, By Storm and Glass.
