2020 Panini Contenders Draft Picks Football is a lot like its NFL counterpart. Autographs are the star, although there are other elements on the checklist as well. This set is all about college, though, showcasing the 2020 draft class as well as past and present stars from their school days.

Hobby boxes come with six autographs while retail blasters promise two.
