2018 Panini Father’s Day Promotion Returns to Hobby Shops


The 2018 Panini Father’s Day promo set is going back to a single checklist. After dabbling in similar but separate football and multi-sport releases, everything is back together again.

2018 Panini Father's Day

Developed as a promotion for hobby shops, 2018 Panini Father’s Day brings together the company’s various licenses including football, basketball, baseball, soccer, NASCAR and college.

As one might expect from such varied subject matter, the checklist brings with it a fair bit of variety.

Over 70 cards make up the main 2018 Panini Father’s Day set. Given the spread of sports, it’s focused on big stars.

Among the cards are rookies, which come numbered to 399.

Parallels come in a handful of levels, using background patterns for visual pop. These include: Future Frames (/50), Escher Squares (/25), Crystal Shards (/10), Checkerboard (/5) and Hyperplaid (1/1). The Crystal Shards pattern has been referred to as Cracked Ice in other releases.

2018 Panini Father’s Day has some thematic insert sets as well. In past years Panini Collection has focused on dramatic photography. This year cards take a more more approach. They still stand out, only this time graphic enhancements and added color are the focal point.

Autographs (including Shohei Ohtani) and memorabilia cards are also part of 2018 Panini Father’s Day.

How to Get 2018 Panini Father’s Day Packs

The main way to participate in the 2018 Panini Father’s Day promotion is to visit a participating card shop.

They’re given an allotment of packs based on special orders for specific products. While it’s up to individual shops to decide how packs are distributed in their shops, it usually corresponds with getting a certain number of special packs for buying boxes of a specific product.
