Panini America Provides Detailed First Look at 2018 Rookies & Stars Football (Gallery)
October 26, 2018

Rarely has a trading card product better lived up to its name. From the very beginning, Panini America’s venerable Rookies & Stars Football franchise has annually staked its reputation on two key ingredients: Rookies . . . and stars. Put the two together in compelling ways with calling-card inserts and parallels, key autographs, rookie-driven memorabilia and you get a product like Rookies & Stars that continues to stand the test of time. That certainly will be the case in late November when 2018 Rookies & Stars Football arrives in hobby shops across North America for another riveting run.

On average, each hobby box (10 cards per pack, six packs per box, 14 boxes per case) will deliver two autographs, two memorabilia cards, five numbered parallels, 22 inserts, 12 Rookie Cards and two numbered Optichrome inserts. New for 2018 will be autograph parallels of the product’s key Optichrome inserts such as Crusade, Great American Heroes, Airborne and Stellar Rookies. In addition, the product will feature new insert sets such as Touchdown Club, Statistical Standouts Signatures and Star Studded.
