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 Player of the Year Contenders cards are among the other insert options.

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 (#/3), 2002, 2003, 2004 (#/10), and 2005 with on-card autographs. The Gold Vinyl parallel is a one-of-one chase.

Numbered to just 25 copies, the Veteran Ticket Autograph cards add a Gold Vinyl (1/1) parallel.
