Largely based around images for past and present stars taken from their collegiate careers, 2018 Panini Contenders Draft Picks Baseball contains six autographs in each Hobby box.
Just like 2017, the autograph-per-pack format also provides a glut of base, variations and inserts.

However, the 2018 Panini Contenders Draft Picks Baseball checklist really gets moving with the signed options. The Draft Ticket autographs highlight those players selected in the 2018 MLB Draft and the RPS Draft Ticket subset features on-card autographs for key names taken in the first three rounds.
Parallels include Prospect Ticket (#/99 or less), Cracked Ice Ticket (#/23 or less), Playoff Ticket (#/15 or less) and Championship Ticket (1/1).
Stepping away from the NCAA focus are the Prospect Ticket and International Ticket autographs. A key signature choice here is Juan Pablo Martinez, the Cuban signing for the Texas Rangers.

There is also the dual-player Collegiate Connections Signatures line pairing two players from the same university.
