2021 Football Cards: What to Expect

Panini continues to hold exclusive rights to both the NFL and most NCAA schools. As a result, they’re the only company you’ll see football cards from using logos and trademarks.

However, there are options beyond this. Leaf and SAGE continue to produce draft-themed sets. Onyx and the resurrected Wild Card have joined in as well this year.

Topps partnered with Trevor Lawrence to produce a special set that was sold as an online-exclusive.

As far as rookies go, it’s a big year for quarterbacks. Lawrence is the clear cut player to watch heading into the season. But there’s also Trey Lance, Zach Wilson and Mac Jones, among others at the position.
