Recently, Panini America revealed the actual print runs for some of the key short prints (SPs) and super short prints (SSPs) in 2018 Panini Contenders Football. Until now, print runs for these cards were only speculative. But, now that they’re official, it may be time to go hunting for those hard-to-find autographs!


From the Knight’s Lance:

Panini America’s ballyhooed 2018 Contenders Football arrived in hobby shops across North America roughly one month ago to a ready-and-waiting collector base that has spent the 30 days or so in a wrapper-ripping, Rookie Ticket-revealing frenzy. That’s certain to continue in the weeks ahead as the many Contenders completists work on building their sets, with one eye always on the set’s various variations and short prints.

Today, we’re going to devote some attention to clarifying or demystifying some of the set’s SP and SSP mysteries. The initial list below details some of the SPs and SSPs featured in 2018 Contenders Football’s Rookie TicketsRookie Ticket Variations (horizontal) and Veteran Tickets. For 2017 Contenders Football, an SP indicates cards with a print run of 250 or less; an SSP indicates cards with a print run of 100 or less. Enjoy the initial list and stay tuned to The Knight’s Lance for continued coverage.
