2021 Panini Chronicles Football Details


2021 Panini Chronicles Football has a lot going on. That’s the point. The anthology-style release takes brands and designs from across the card maker’s portfolio and puts them into one product. Most didn’t get their own full-fledged releases on the 2021 football card calendar, but there are a couple that get tweaks and updates.

Hobby boxes have three total hits, two of which are autographs. There are also plenty of inserts and parallels per box.

2021 Panini Chronicles Football Checklist Overview

The Chronicles base set is a mix of vets, rookies and retired stars. All have six levels of parallels available in hobby packs:

  • Red – /399
  • Blue – /99
  • Purple – /49
  • Black – /25
  • Gold – /10
  • Platinum – 1/1

Select cards also have jersey versions, which max out at 199 copies each. Jersey Prime (/25) and Jersey Tag (1/1) parallels can be found for these.

Moving into the product’s other brands, there’s Prizm Black, a dark twist on the main Prizm line.
