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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
