2017 Panini Contenders Draft Picks Baseball sees the venerable brand return to the diamond as a standalone release after taking 2016 off.

2017 Panini Contenders Draft Picks Baseball

Centered largely on this year’s draft class, international signings and other prospects, hobby packs promise an autograph per pack.

The product also highlights past and current players shown from their college days.

The 2017 Panini Contenders Draft Picks Baseball shell set has just 25 cards. It’s a mix of veterans and retired players. Parallels, which combine to land at a rate of one per box, include some new levels. These include Diamond Ticket (/15), Building Block Ticket (/10) and Fame Ticket (/5). Cracked Ice parallels also return.

The draft picks and prospects come in through similarly designed cards, albeit with the addition of signatures. The ticket theme, something that makes Contenders both distinct and unmistakable from other releases, is present.

While stickers are used in many parts of 2017 Panini Contenders Draft Picks Baseball, some of the top picks taken in the first couple of rounds of the 2017 MLB Draft have on-card signatures. Brendan McKay, Kyle Wright, Pavin Smith and Austin Beck are among those with hard-signed cards.

Other “Ticket”-themed autographs include Prospect Ticket, International Ticket and Draft Ticket.

Like regular base cards, autographs have multiple levels of parallels including Cracked Ice (/23) and one-of-one Printing Plates.

2017 Panini Contenders Draft Picks Baseball isn’t just prospect autographs. The product has some tough inserts, like Alumni Ink, featuring signatures from former college standouts. Collegiate Connections has autographs from a pair of players who went to the school.

    Could not have been more un-impressed with the recent basketball version of this product. Terrible collation and quality control (smeared ink etc…). This looks like more of the same unfortunately.
