What: 2018 Elite Draft Picks football cards
Box basics: Six autographs per 12-pack retail jumbo box (20 boxes per case)
What’s buzz-worthy: Elite Draft Picks will kick off Panini America’s 2018 football calendar with an autograph in every other jumbo pack — that’s more ink in boxes than last year — and that will be the only format to be found at retail, too.

The Basics: There will be no blasters or 24-pack boxes for this one at retail this year — just these 20-card packs that carry a suggested retail price of $9.99. The roster of new signers will include more than 50 top prospects and NFL Draft hopefuls. (The draft is set for April 26.) For inserts, there will be retail-only Aspirations and Status diecut Orange cards as well as Draft Pick Aspirations and Status diecut Orange autographs. All players in the product — stars of the past and present as well as draft picks — will be found in their college uniforms for this one. A typical jumbo box will include 108 draft pick cards, six parallels, six draft pick parallels and 12 inserts, according to info from Panini. … Click here to see the hobby details.
