搶先看:2018 Obsidian Football

When it comes to Panini America’s wildly popular Optichrome printing technology, there is no shortage of successful products utilizing the alluring finish for their own unique benefit: Prizm does its thing. Optic does its thing. Select does its thing. Spectra does its thing. But there’s an Optichrome evolution coming . . . and it’s called “Obsidian.” The newest innovation delivers what the product solicitation material bills as “an eruption of sharp, edgy and contemporary designs.”

What it also delivers is something dubbed “Electric Etch” that presents the game’s best veteran superstars and hottest rookies as you’ve rarely seen them. Set to hit hobby shops across North America in late November, each hobby box of 2018 Obsidian Football (seven cards per box, 12 boxes per case) will deliver, on average, four autograph or memorabilia cards, two Electric Etch parallels or inserts and one base card — all numbered to 100 or less.

To be sure, 2018 Obsidian Football is a bold new arrival in the Panini America portfolio and it’s filled with highlights, including . . .

  • Rookie Jersey Autographs and Rookie Jersey Ink showcasing the 2018 NFL Rookie Class in stunning Optichrome fashion, all sequentially numbered to 100 or less.

  • The NFL’s most electric current and retired stars are featured in the dynamic Matrix Material Autographs, Aurora Autographs and Lightning Strike inserts. Find the likes of Tom Brady, Aaron Rodgers, Peyton Manning, Matt Ryan, Carson Wentz, Joe Montana and more.

  • Sleek die-cut designs come alive in Rookie Eruption, Cutting Edge and Galaxy Gear; also look for the rare, one-per-case Vitreous chase.

  • A 200-card base set (including 100 rookies) numbered to 100 and featuring Electric Etch Purple (numbered to 75), Electric Etch Orange (numbered to 50), Electric Etch Green (numbered to 25), Electric Etch Yellow (numbered to 10), Electric Etch Red (numbered to five) and Electric Etch White Finite 1/1 parallels.

  • The product’s Rookie Jersey Autographs set features base versions numbered to 100 or less as well as Electric Etch Orange (numbered to 50), Electric Etch Green (numbered to 25), Electric Etch Yellow (numbered to 10), Electric Etch Red (numbered to five) and Electric Etch White Finite 1/1 parallels.

We’ll have plenty more to preview on 2018 Obsidian Football in the coming weeks here on The Knight’s Lance. But for now, enjoy this extended sneak peek:

We first pulled the curtain back on a new creation dubbed “Obsidian Football” back in September, initially quoting the product’s sales solicitation material that characterized the innovative new release as “an eruption of sharp, edgy and contemporary designs” utilizing something Panini America Product Developers and Production folks called “Electric Etch.” But it’s hard to ascertain how all of that translates visually until you have some actual visuals. Well, now we do.

Over the last several days, the first uncut sheets of 2018 Obsidian Football (set to arrive in hobby shops across North America in early December) have made their way back to Panini America HQ for some preliminary QC checks. We could do our best to try to explain what “Electric Etch” looks like and what exactly it means when “sharp, edgy and contemporary designs” erupt. Instead, though, we’ll just let these first uncut sheets speak for us. Enjoy the early look and stay tuned to The Knight’s Lance for additional coverage.


Up until now, most of our previewing efforts surrounding Panini America’s new 2018 Obsidian Football have revolved around the debut product’s darker take on Optichrome and at least one of the early autograph inclusions. But with the product set to make its world premiere next Wednesday, we’re going to expand our focus just a bit and appreciate some of the product’s way-cool memorabilia cards — including a bevy of die-cut beauties that truly stand out.

In the gallery below, we preview Prime versions of several striking memorabilia chases, including Atomic Material, Volcanic Material and the deftly die-cut Galaxy Gear, Cutting Edge and Rookie Eruption inserts. Enjoy the early look and stay tuned to The Knight’s Lance for additional coverage of 2018 Obsidian Football.
