2021 Panini Origins Football Rookie Variations Guide

Share:

Ten top rookies are pulling double duty in the 2021 Origins base set (triple if you count the Jumbo Jersey Autographs). The 2021 Panini Origins Football Rookie Variations offer up a second card with a different photo. They’re pretty stealth, too, so you’ll likely want to acquaint yourself with the gallery below.

Outside of the switched images, there doesn’t appear to be any other noticeable differences that will help you quickly spot a variation. Combine that with a design that has an isolated player photo with a color pattern background and it can actually be quite tough. There’s also the fact that boxes don’t have a lot of cards to begin with so getting excessive duplicates is also unlikely.

The easiest variations to spot are the ones with different jersey colors. But that doesn’t even cover half of them. Others have things like different poses or how the ball is being held.

Because variations don’t have parallels like the regular cards, that’s one way to determine which is which. If you spot the card as a parallel, it’s base. We’ve made it even easier by showing variation and base versions next to each other below.
