Utilizing Opti-Chrome technology and a dark color scheme, 2018 Panini Obsidian Football delivers a hobby explosion of NFL stars.

Named for volcanic glass, the new brand works exclusively with cards numbered to 100 or less. Each Hobby box averages four hits.

2018 Panini Obsidian Football Base / Inserts

Joining 100 base cards and 100 rookies, each numbered to 100 copies, the 2018 Panini Obsidian Football checklist adds colorful enhancements via the Electric Etch Purple (#/75), Orange (#/50), Green (#/25), Yellow (#/10), Red (#/5), and White Finite (1/1) parallels.

The die-cut Vitreous (#/100) is a case-hit insert centered around 10 of the best rookie stars. These offer the exact same parallels as the base set, minus the purple version.

  1. Is it 1981? Am I playing Space Invaders? What is this? I give Panini credit for Luminance. Elements isn’t a bad brand. Gala was cool last year. But the bulk of their products look like they were made by intelligent ninth graders. This is proof. Where is Topps?
