2018 Donruss Football CardsBrand: Donruss
Among the mainstream NFL sets, few can match the popularity and affordability of 2018 Donruss Football. Filled with inserts and headlined by the Rated Rookie subset, it could be argued that this is Panini's flagship release.
Like 2017, those buying Hobby boxes can expect an average of one autograph and one memorabilia card.
2018 Donruss Football Base
At 400 cards, the 2018 Donruss Football checklist cuts quite deep into the NFL. The first 300 cards are for current and former players, with an additional 50 rookies and 50 Rated Rookie cards. Collectors should find one rookie and one Rated Rookie in each pack.
As far as the base parallels, there are Press Proof die-cut cards in Silver (#/75), Gold (#/25) and Black (1/1).
2018 Donruss Football Inserts
Combining to average a staggering 40 per box, the 2018 Donruss Football inserts cover a lot of ground. Ground Force uses images from outer space to highlight top running backs. There is also a 20-card set for the Philadelphia Eagles' Super Bowl LII win in The Champ is Here. Reaching back, the 1988 Tribute set honors the '88 Donruss design for the standouts of today. Moving one decade ahead, a similar offering is featured in 1998 Tribute.
But there's even more to look forward to in the insert department, including new sets such as Matthew Berry's Fantasy Life, MVP, Snow Days, and Walter Payton Man of the Year. The case-hit Downtown! insert showcases drawings related to the city where each star plays.
Covering celebrities who enjoy the NFL, Fans of the Game includes snowboarder Chloe Kim, as well as actors Chris Evans and James Caan.
2018 Donruss Football Autographs / Memorabilia
Averaging one of each per Hobby box, 2018 Donruss Football offers several options for autographs and memorabilia. This includes Rookie Phenom Jersey Autographs (#/99 or less) and Rookie Threads. Both first-year sets have Prime (#/25) and Laundry Tag (1/1) parallels.
There is also a 2018 Donruss Football factory set scheduled for September that includes all 400 base cards and one exclusive Rookie Threads relic in a Green parallel.
Estimated Release Date: 08/01/2018
