2017 Panini Contenders Football – Product Review

THE REVIEW

Manufacturer: Panini

Product: 2017 Panini Playoff Contenders Football

PRICE: $145.00/box

If you are a baseball collector, you know that there is a specific product everyone is buying and is THE brand of card to get when prospecting.

Well, this is what Panini Contenders is to the NFL sports card market.

I have a good time opening this product every year as there are some player autos you will hit that you never expected, some of players you never heard of. Plus of that, if that player does have a great career, there is a possibility you could be sitting on a future boom. If not, maybe it will be of a player from your Alma Mater, on your favorite team, from your hometown, or maybe is a player you can trade with friends and enjoy the hobby.

I like all of the inserts like the Legendary set that highlights players from the HOF or possible first ballot HOF’ers. Or Round Numbers, which highlight a pair of players, rookies and or vets, they leave ya wondering what’s up with that, and flipping the card over for more details, or hitting Google to find out information I was not aware of.

If you watched the video above and kept count, we only hit 4 autos in all, the box says there are at least 5 autos per box on average. Even with that, we did well in my opinion. Check the video out, speed through it if you have to, just have fun watching and comment on this post and let me know what you think!

2016-17 Panini Contenders Draft Picks Basketball – Product Review

 

THE REVIEW

Manufacturer: Panini

Product: 2016-17 Panini Contenders Draft Picks Basketball

PRICE: $??/box

Jaxson and I want to send a shoutout and thank you to @GeDannyS for this hobby box. Jaxson and I shared the opening, I know I should have let Jaxson do it all, but I had to get in on the fun. #BadDad

We both liked all of the insert sets and that you receive them in each pack. Jaxson is a fan of the Old School Colors and after thinking about it, I am too. The card stock is rather thin but the designs highlighted by some foil, cracked ice, or other parallel is really nice.

We hope you enjoy the video review and thanks for stopping by.
