2018 Panini Origins football will return for a third straight season just as this year’s NFL rookie class is getting its collective feet wet during the pre-season schedule. It’s a one pack box product packing three hits, including a pair of autographs.
On average, each hobby box (seven cards per box, 16 boxes per case) will include one hard-signed rookie autograph, one Jumbo Rookie Patch Autograph and one Jumbo or Patch memorabilia card.
Booklet cards return as one of the major chase elements in Origins, an artsy-styled product similar to Topps Inception.
The on-card rooke autographs will be found in subsets entitled Rookie Autographs, Passing Stars, Rushing Stars, Receiving Stars and Quad Rookie Autographs The Passing, Rushing and Receiving Stars cads will have a limited number of inscribed autographs highlighting some of each player’s top collegiate accomplishments.
Most of the rookie autographs were signed during last month’s NFLPA Rookie Premiere.
Booklets return for the new season, too, including Rookie Booklet Patch Autos, Six-Star Signature Booklets and Rookie Stars Dual Signatures Booklets.
Rookie Jumbo Patch Autographs will have six different parallels including: Red (numbered to 99 or less), Blue (numbered to 49 or less), Turquoise (numbered to 25 or less), Gold (numbered to 10 or less), Green(numbered to five or less) and Black Brand Logo 1/1 versions.
Origins Autographs parallels include Bronze Ink (numbered to 99 or less), Silver Ink (25 or less) and Gold Ink (10 or less) versions.
Panini will create cards of the top skill position rookies and add four autographs for its Quad Rookie Autographs.
Among the memorabilia cards will be oversized jersey patches that will be found on Rookie Jumbo Jerseys cards which feature Red (numbered to 99 or less), Orange (numbered to 75 or less), Blue (numbered to 49 or less), Turquoise (numbered to 25 or less), Gold (numbered to 10 or less), Green (numbered to five or less) and Black 1/1 parallels.
