After a year away, Panini is set to bring back the Playbook brand for the 2018 NFL season this December and we could not be any more excited for this! With a focus on booklet cards the brand is poised to make a huge splash this winter in its return to the hobby! Let’s take a look at what we can expect to find!
With a focus on just hits, each box contains four autographs or memorabilia cards with at least one booklet card. Three out of every four boxes have a hard-signed rookie jersey autograph booklet. Living up to its namesake, 2018 Panini Playbook Football packs (no pun intended!) a lot of booklet autographs. The Rookie Playbook Jersey Autographs set features on-card signatures and includes a large swatch for 2018 NFL Draft rookies. In addition to the base 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 of 1), Laundry Tag (1 of 1), and Printing Plate (1 of 1) versions.
Featuring current and former NFL stars, the Playbook Material Autographs (#/49 or less) insert has multiple relic pieces included in the booklet. These have Green (#/25 or less), Red (#/10 or less), NFL Shield (1 of 1), Nike Swoosh (1 of 1), and Printing Plate (1 of 1) parallels.
The Vault Tri-Fold Jersey Auto Booklet incorporates a three-panel design with a whopping EIGHT jersey swatches per card! These look absolutely incredible! Oh and did I mention the cards are acetate as well! Each card is numbered to 25 or less and you can chase after Gold (#/10 or less) and Premium (1 of 1) parallels.
The two-panel Front 4 Signatures Booklet features the same rarity and parallels as the tri-fold booklet above but instead showcases a relic swatch and signature for four top players in the league. Some other hits to look out for include Split 6 Signatures and Coaches Quotes.
Non-booklet autographs can be found in Hail Mary Signatures (#/199 or less) and Rookie Signatures. Hail Mary has just Prime (#/25 or less) and Premium (1 of 1) parallels, while the rookie autograph line has hobby-exclusive Platinum (#/49), Green (#/25), Gold (#/10), Black (#/5), Red (1 of 1) and Printing Plate (1 of 1) editions.
The memorabilia inserts in 2018 Panini Playbook Football are equally impressive. There are Rookie Jumbo Memorabilia Booklets (#/49) with dual-panel swatches in Prime (#/25) plus 1 of 1 parallels from Logos, Gloves, Nike Swoosh patches, NFL Shield jersey patches, and NFL Shield leather football parallels.
Featuring an impressive and eye-catching horizontal design, the massive Game of Inches makes good use of the acetate design and photography to incorporate two large pieces of memorabilia. These also have Gold (#/10 or less) and Premium (1 of 1) parallels. Debuting in 2018 Panini Playbook Football, Nexus Tri-Fold Jumbo Jerseys feature a team-based trio. Once again, parallels include Gold (#/10 or less) and Premium (1 of 1).
