2018 Panini Certified Racing NASCAR CardsBrand: Panini NASCAR
After a one-year break, 2018 Panini Certified Racing sees the return of the NASCAR brand for another trip around the track. The four hits in each Hobby box break down into two autographs and two memorabilia cards.
The release was last issued in 2016, but the planned hard-signed content did not materialize. However, the 2018 set is expected to stick with the on-card autographs this time.
2018 Panini Certified Racing Base / Inserts
Offering 80 base cards alongside 10 Immortals and 10 Cars, the 2018 Panini Certified Racing checklist features 100 cards in the main set. There are also multiple parallel choices.
Inserts include Epix, numbered to 199, which adds Red (#/149), Blue (#/99), Gold (#/49), Purple (#/25), Mirror Gold (#/25), Green (#/10), Mirror Purple (#/10), Mirror Green (#/5), and Black (1/1) parallels. More insert options come via the All-Certifed Team, Certified Stars, Fresh Faces and Skills sets.
2018 Panini Certified Racing Autographs / Memorabilia
Averaging a pair of autographs and relics in every Hobby box, hard-signed content sets the pace for 2018 Panini Certified Racing. Certified Next Signatures is for the young stars, while Signing Sessions expands the on-card autograph space. Parallels include Red (#/75 or less), Blue (#/50 or less), Gold (#/25 or less), Purple (#/10 or less), Green (#/5 or less), and Black (1/1).
Bringing in race-worn gear are the Freshman Firesuits (for rookie drivers), Certified Materials Signatures and dual-relic Certified Signatures Swatches sets. These also have Red (#/199 or less), Blue (#/49 or less), Gold (#/25 or less), Purple (#/10 or less), Green (#/5 or less), and Black (1/1) parallels.
And finally, matching the auto-relic parallels noted above, Xfinity Materials focuses on race-worn memorabilia from five top drivers in the NASCAR Xfinity Series.
