For most of football-collecting America, Friday simply can’t get here fast enough. Friday, after all, is national release day for Panini America’s highly anticipated 2018 Contenders Optic Football, the Optichrome-enhanced younger brother of Contenders Football that delivers an awful lot of “Wow!” for being packaged in such a small box. On average, each six-card hobby box (10 boxes per inner case, two inner cases per master case) will deliver two autographs (including one on-card), one parallel and one insert.
In the revealing Quality Control Gallery that follows, we offer a bold exploration of the colorful, captivating product by showcasing some of the gems that surfaced during the recent packout process. Enjoy the sneak peek and stay tuned to The Knight’s Lance this week for continued coverage.
2018 Contenders Optic Football will be available at the official online store of Panini America beginning Friday at 12 p.m. CST.
