2018 Panini Instant Football Checklist and Full Details


2018 Panini Instant Football cards are like the hobby’s version of a highlight package on the news. The online-exclusive set takes the biggest moments of the football season — starting months before the first official kickoff.

Beginning at the NFL Scouting Combine in March and running all the way through to the Super Bowl, it’s storytelling through football cards.

2018 Panini Instant Football marks the third season for the print-on-demand set. Usually, cards are offered individually through the company’s website for just 24 hours. Sometimes, though, there are special events and mini sets that can be available for different timeframes.

For example, the set’s first installment, seven Combine cards, were available for a few days, both individually and as a group set for $29.99.

New for the regular season, Panini is offering weekly passes every Monday that cover the full slate of base cards. So if you plan to chase the set, you can lock in, at a discounted rate cheaper than buying cards individually, and not worry about missing a day.

For the main 2018 Panini Instant Football base set, cards have open-ended production runs. The number of cards printed is based on what’s ordered — no more, no less.

Base cards also come with a couple of parallels, Green (/10) and Black (1/1). Select players also have limited autograph versions as well. Rather than the set time approach, these are available until they’re sold out.
