2018 Panini Kaboom Gets Its Own Rewards-Exclusive Set, Get the Checklist and Details


2018 Panini Kaboom is a special multi-sport set exclusive to the Panini Rewards program.

Kaboom has been one of the most popular insert sets to debut over the past few years. But this time around, it’s a small standalone set. Top players from football, basketball, baseball and soccer are all part of the 2018 Panini Kaboom checklist. The trademark cartoon action illustrations are back as well as the wild foil background pattern.

At 50 cards, the set might not be huge. That said, the limited distribution is going to ensure its still a challenge for those wanting to undertake it.

2018 Panini Kaboom packs have two cards. They cost 2,500 Panini Rewards points. There’s a daily limit of five packs per household.

In addition to the base cards that have silver backgrounds, Kaboom! is getting its first parallels as well. Gold versions have ten copies each. Green are one-of-ones.

    So, Ryan, what I CANNOT find is the basic information of how many base cards were made for each of the 50 players. I know there are 11 parallels for each of the chosen few.

    Somewhere you must have the information on how many base cards were made for each player and I would very much appreciate having this knowledge. I have three kaboom cards from the 2018 multisport set and I cannot determine rarity without knowing how many were printed. This will be the third time you have answered something important to me.

      If they’re not serial numbered, print runs haven’t been announced.
