User Rating:

For many collectors, 2018 Panini Contenders Optic Football proves that the only thing that can beat on-card Rookie Ticket autographs is a much shinier version. Each Hobby box contains two autographs with one being hard-signed.

The follow-up to the unexpected 2017 set is ideal for those who enjoy some chromium with their Contenders.

2018 Panini Contenders Optic Football Base / Inserts

Collectors who are familiar with the Contenders brand know that the base cards are called Season Ticket cards. Parallels include Red (#/199), Blue (#/99), Orange (#/49), Gold (#/10), and Gold Vinyl (1/1).

There are a few inserts, as well, including X's and O's with an offensive and defensive standout from the same team, and Triple Threat, which offers a teammate trio. Averaging one per box overall, these base insert cards are numbered to 175. Limited parallels consist of Purple (#/99), Orange (#/49), Blue (#/25), Gold (#/10), and Gold Vinyl (1/1).

MVP Contenders and Legendary Contenders cards are some of the other insert options.

2018 Panini Contenders Optic Football Ticket Autographs

In Contenders, the name of the game is always the Rookie Ticket subset. That remains true in the 2018 Panini Contenders Optic Football checklist. The on-card Rookie Ticket RPS Autograph set features key names at a rate of one per box. There are also Red (#/199), Purple (#/99), Orange (#/49), Blue (#/25), Gold (#/10), and Gold Vinyl (1/1) parallels.

However, the selection is not just about the 2018 rookies. Those that missed out on iconic Rookie Ticket cards of the past can try their luck again thanks to the Contenders Rookie Ticket Tribute Autographs. These low-numbered editions honor all-time greats from 1999, 2000, 2002, 2003, 2004, and 2005 with on-card autographs. The Gold Vinyl parallel is a one-of-one chase.

    Panini and Topps are killing the hobby..the bubble is a couple of years away from bursting, $150 for 2 junk autos and 6 cards total..they are not attrcting any younger collectors because all this stuff is way overpriced..

    It’s ironic because the companies are only going to fill the demand – if we don’t like something and think it’s too expensive, don’t buy it! I’m not buying this because I know at least one autograph might be 99 cents. Therefore, how many of the other on-card autos are worth $140+? I believe I bought last years product at under $100 when it first came out. The reason products now are so high is BREAKERS! Together they are killing the hobby! They don’t care about price because when it’s broken down by 30 people, the gamble is nothing. . .They are also killing LCSs because they take all the product. I see breakers get like 20 cases of something my LCS can only get 2 cases of, and they have been a customer 25 years.

    For the price point and number of cards Panini should have kept it to the top Rookies and Stars.

    Its all about increasing how much product they can make… so asking Panini to reduce or make less.. or keeping it to stars only… means less boxes..that aint gonna fly..

    My favorite product. Takes the best from Contenders and Donruss Optic and combines them into one. Pricey, but stick to singles and they look incredible in a one touch.
