February 17, 2019

Saquon Rookie Ticket

Panini America’s ballyhooed 2018 Contenders Football arrived in hobby shops across North America just more than one month ago to a ready-and-waiting collector base that has spent the weeks since in a wrapper-ripping, Rookie Ticket-revealing frenzy. That’s certain to continue in the weeks ahead as the many Contenders completists work on building their sets, with one eye always on the set’s various variations and short prints.

Last week we started sharing preliminary information in an effort to clarify or demystify some of the set’s SP and SSP mysteries. You can check out last week’s update here. The list below details more of the SPs and SSPs featured in 2018 Contenders Football’s Rookie Tickets (black team logo) and Rookie Ticket Variations (color team logo). For 2018 Contenders Football, an SP indicates cards with a print run of 250 or less; an SSP indicates cards with a print run of 100 or less. Enjoy the list and stay tuned to The Knight’s Lance for continued coverage.
