2018 Panini Playbook Football Cards


Product Details

User Rating:

After a short break, 2018 Panini Playbook Football returns to the NFL hobby with a continued fixation on booklet cards and the first on-card book autographs for the brand since 2012.

Not seen as a full set since 2016, the 2018 Hobby edition changes to an all-hit format with four autographs or memorabilia cards per box. This total includes one booklet card. In fact, three out of every four boxes have a hard-signed rookie jersey autograph booklet.

There is also a separate retail release with exclusive base cards and inserts.

2018 Panini Playbook Football Autographs

Coming as no surprise, the 2018 Panini Playbook Football checklist works in a lot of booklet autographs. The Rookie Playbook Jersey Autographs set features an on-card signature and includes a large swatch for 2018 draftees. In addition to the base cards numbered to 125 or less, there are Gold (#/99 or less), Platinum (#/49 or less), Green (#/25 or less), Red (#/10), Glove (#/5), NFL Shield (1/1), Laundry Tag (1/1), and Printing Plate (1/1) versions.

Boasting current and former NFL stars, the Playbook Material Autographs (#/49 or less) insert fits multiple relic pieces into the book layout. These have Green (#/25 or less), Red (#/10 or less), NFL Shield (1/1), Nike Swoosh (1/1), and Printing Plate (1/1) parallels.

Moving to a third panel in 2018 Panini Playbook Football, the Vault Tri-Fold Jersey Auto line incorporates eight jersey swatches per card. This new acetate set is numbered to 25 or less and has Gold (#/10 or less) and Premium (1/1) parallels.

The two-panel Front 4 Signatures Booklet features the same rarity and parallels as the tri-fold, but instead showcases a relic swatch and signature for four top players. More choices include Split 6 Signatures and Coaches Quotes.

Not all the signed options are booklets, though, as evidenced by Hail Mary Signatures (#/199 or less) and Rookie Signatures. Hail Mary has just Prime (#/25 or less) and Premium (1/1) parallels, while the rookie autograph line has Hobby-exclusive Platinum (#/49), Green (#/25), Gold (#/10), Black (#/5), Red (1/1) and Printing Plate (1/1) editions.

2018 Panini Playbook Football Memorabilia

The memorabilia inserts in 2018 Panini Playbook Football are equally diverse. Rookie Jumbo Memorabilia Booklet (#/49) has dual-panel swatches in Prime (#/25), plus the one-of-one Complete Logo, Gloves, Nike Swoosh, NFL Shield, and Leather NFL Shield parallels.

Transitioning to a horizontal layout, the massive Game of Inches makes good use of the acetate design and impressive photos to highlight two large pieces of memorabilia. These also have Gold (#/10 or less) and Premium (1/1) parallels.

2018 Panini Playbook Football

Debuting in 2018 Panini Playbook Football, Nexus Tri-Fold Jumbo Jerseys really stretches the defense with a team-based trio. Once again, parallels include Gold (#/10 or less) and Premium (1/1).
