Imagine Rookie Ticket autographs flooded with chromium and you might have 2017 Panini Contenders Optic Football. The new NFL brand combines the popular signed rookie cards and a shiny finish to deliver two autographs per hobby box, with at least one being hard-signed.

Using the designs from 2017 Contenders, and applying the technology from 2017 Donruss Optic, 2017 Contenders Optic NFL shrinks the format to just one pack of six cards per box.

2017 Panini Contenders Optic Football Base / Inserts

Despite the very limited box yield, there is still a full base lineup with the Season Ticket set. These base cards come two per box, and also offer numbered Red, Blue, Gold and Gold Vinyl parallels. Parallels combine to average one per box.

2017 Panini Contenders Optic Football

Filling the ranks, inserts drop two per box, and include All-Pro Contenders, Hall of Fame Contenders, MVP Contenders and Round Numbers.

2017 Panini Contenders Optic Football Autographs

Signatures naturally dominate focus in the one-pack boxes, and the 2017 Panini Contenders Optic Football checklist is led by the Rookie Ticket RPS Autographs. These Opti-Chrome cards are signed on-card and fall one per box. There are also Gold and Gold Vinyl (1/1) parallels.

2017 Panini Contenders Optic Football

Celebrating Rookie Ticket designs of the past, the Contenders Tribute autograph set reimagines prior first-year classics, specifically options from 1998, 1999, 2000 and 2001. These limited cards are numbered to 25 or less.

2017 Panini Contenders Optic Football

Other signed cards to chase include Hall of Fame Contenders, for those likely to enter Canton sooner than later, and Rookie of the Year Contenders (#/99 or less), which identifies the strongest ROY candidates. Matching top names from the 2017 NFL Draft are Round Numbers autographs.

  1. Sorta Mixing the 2 Brands Optic with Contenders will only Confuse the Professional Breakers over at Breakers dot TV. Thats like Mixing the Two designs of Finest with Chrome and adding a No Peel on the RC’s What kinda Goof does that anymore? Bad Idea In my Opinion

  2. Are the backs going to be in horrible of shape like base contenders? Nothing like pulling a superbowl ticket with edges and corners that look like my three year old has been handling all day long.
