2018 Panini Classics Football CardsBrand: Classics
Evoking a bygone era of NFL collecting, 2018 Panini Classics Football goes retro for top current and former players, plus key incoming rookies.
In addition to multiple inserts and parallels, each Hobby box contains one autograph and one memorabilia card.
2018 Panini Classics Football Base / Inserts
Starting with the base set, the 2018 Panini Classics Football checklist consists of 300 cards which are split into 100-card subsets for veterans, legends and rookies. Card backs really get into the old-school fun with custom designs and player trivia.
Just as the product did in 2017, multiple parallels change the colors and even add or remove information. This includes Red Back (#/299), Blank Back (#/50), No Name (#/10) and Full Name (#/5). There are also Timeless Tributes parallels in Gold (#/99), Orange (#/25), Blue (#/10) and Black (1/1).
The chromium Premium Edition parallel is new to the set, utilizing OptiChrome technology to spice up the base design. These average four per Hobby box with one being a parallel numbered to 175 or less.
2018 Panini Classics Football also has inserts that combine to fall one per pack. High Praise is among the choices with a focus on NFL legends. Meanwhile, sticker cards drop 1:12 packs, and include Award Winners, Team Pennants and Vintage Logo Stickers.
2018 Panini Classics Football Autographs / Memorabilia
With one signed card and one relic per box, 2018 Panini Classics Football offers several premium inserts, as well. The Significant Signatures line extends across the base checklist to cover many veterans, legends and rookies. There are also the Prizm-based Classic Combos Signature cards with a pair of autographs on each.
On-card Buyback Autographs are rare but should average one per inner case (10 boxes) or two per 20-box case. These take cards from earlier sets dating 1988 to 2017.
Regarding the memorabilia, 2018 Panini Classics Football celebrates Hall of Fame players with Canton Collection Swatches. Collectors can also find relic cards in Classic Materials and Classic Combos Materials. Extra rarity exists through the Prime parallels, numbered to 50 or less.
