2021 Panini Chronicles UFC Checklist and Details
When you consider all the weight classes and global reach of the company’s roster, UFC has a lot of diversity. That diversity theme comes through in 2021 Panini Chronicles UFC, an anthology-style card set that reaches deep into Panini’s portfolio of brands.
Traditional styles mix with foil, chromium and super-premium lines all under the same collective banner. On the hobby side, that includes a pair of autographs per box.
2021 Panini Chronicles UFC Checklist Overview
In total, more than 20 base Panini brands are on the Chronicles UFC checklist, each with their own design, style and approach.
Among them are:
- Contenders Optic
- Crown Royale
- National Treasures
Some brands are exclusive to certain configurations. For example, hobby is the only place to find base National Treasures, Noir and Gala cards.
On top of base cards are parallels. For chromium lines like Optic Rated Rookies, Crusade, Flux, Spectra and Contenders Optic, it means Silver Prizms and their bright backdrops.
For those who collect Panini’s sets in other sports, some of these lines and design are likely to be familiar. However, with the card maker still in their first year with the UFC license, they’re all new to the Octagon.
Brands are all packaged together meaning you’ll find variety in every pack.
For those going numerically, the main set has a total of 400 cards. That said, there are 23 different brands represented within it ranging from entry level to super premium. There’s a lot of overlap in much of the sections, meaning top stars and rookies have several cards.
Completing a full master set will be a major challenge, not just due to its scope. The final 20 cards, which are part of the Gala line, are numbered to just 8 copies.
The mix of cards and styles carries over to the autographs as well. High-end autograph memorabilia lines include Crown Royale Silhouettes, which are exclusive to hobby, and National Treasures Memorabilia Autographs.
More ink can be found in Contenders Rookie Season Ticket and Prizm National Pride Signatures.
