Panini America’s fabled Contenders Football franchise is ready to make its powerful presence felt for another season when the highly anticipated 2018 version arrives in hobby shops across North America on Friday. Boasting legendary Rookie Ticket Autographs (including hard-signed versions for some of the game’s top rookies), a bold array of parallels and additional ink from some of the game’s biggest superstar veterans, 2018 Contenders Football is poised to instantly become one of the most highly coveted, heavily broken products of the season.

On average, each hobby box of 2018 Contenders Football (six cards per pack, 18 packs per box, 12 boxes per case) will deliver five autographs (including at least one on-card), 18 inserts and one parallel. The iconic Rookie Tickets will once again be paralleled by the likes of Playoff Tickets (numbered to 99 or less), Championship Tickets (numbered to 49 or less), Cracked Ice Tickets (numbered to 24) and Super Bowl Ticket 1/1s.

We brought you an extended preview of the product in last week’s Quality Control Gallery. Today, we’re taking you pack by pack through three early boxes. Enjoy the break and stay tuned to The Knight’s Lance for additional coverage.
