Following a rocky start, the hybrid NFL card brand returns via 2018 Panini Honors Football. Each Hobby box contains two autographs.

The initial release in 2016 was hardly a success but the 2018 edition comes with some new features in addition to a large assortment of buybacks. Outside of the buybacks, every card is numbered to 99 or less. The set also promises "more on-card autographs than ever before."

2018 Panini Honors Football Base / Updates

The only portion of 2018 Panini Honors Football that actually operates under the Honors name is the base set (and base autographs below). Numbered to 99, the small lineup of 32 cards features one player from each NFL team. Parallels include Gold (#/75), Blue (#/25), Orange (#/10), Red (#/5) and Black (1/1) versions.

A new wrinkle for 2018 Panini Honors Football is the update set. In this case, Panini has added Opti-Chrome technology to 30 rookies using the 2018 Classics and 2018 Score designs. Although most of the key 2018 rookies were already featured in these early-season sets, they are essentially NCAA cards as they show college images and info. The Classics Update Rookies and Score Update Rookies cards feature NFL images. Like the Honors base cards, these are numbered to 99 with several parallels.
