REVIEW:2017 Panini Limited Football

Another year, another Limited football release.

Limited has always been popular among collectors and has always stuck to a basic layout for the overall product with just a few tweaks here and there. Which isn't a bad thing.

The point of Limited is to make all of its hits and parallels,well, limited. Each one is numbered.

Let's check out the 2017 edition.

In each box of 2017 Panini Limited football has 3 packs and 5 cards per box. There is 2 autographs and 1 memorabilia card per box and boxes are currently running $99 per. Not many cards per box so you are banking that those hits will rock.

The base card design sticks with it's norm with just a fresher layout. But, it's a bit thicker cardstock with a white background. The base set is 100 cards and has players of the past and present.

There are parallels to the base set which are pretty easy to spot as the lettering how you spot them. They include, Silver /99 (below), Gold /49, Ruby /25, Emerald /5, Sapphire 1/1, and Printing Plates 1/1.

Limited doesn't have any inserts so let's get straight to the hits.

My first pull was this Limitless relic which also has Prime /25 and Super Prime 1/1.

My next pull was this rookie autograph of Aaron Jones. These make up the final cards in the "base set". These rookies have parallels of Silver /35, Gold #/25 (the Jones), Ruby /10, Emerald /5, Sapphire 1/1, and Printing Plates 1/1.

My final pull was this Darboh auto patch card. These cards make up cards 101-140 in the base set. These also have parallels of Silver /75, Gold /50 (my pull below), Ruby /10, Emerald /5, and Sapphire 1/1.

Other hits not found in my box include,

Limited Ink Autographs, Limited Combos Autograph, Limited Trios Autograph Jersey, Limited Quad Autograph Booklet, Draft Day Signatures Booklet, Game Day Swatches, Limited Partnership Dual Autographs, Limited Partnership Trios Autographs, Prime Time Jerseys , Ring of Honor Autographs, Rookie Phenoms Jerseys and Team Trademark Signatures.

You can see the full checklist for 2017 Limited football HERE.

OVERALL: My box wasn't a hot hitter, but there is plenty of hot hits in limited. The checklist is full of superstars of today, tomorrow and the past. The card design is solid throughout the product and with each of the hits and parallels being numbered it helps add a bit extra value.

Most of the hits, if not all, from this break will be given away for #SCC6YR celebration. Please, please tell Panini America and Tracy Hackler thanks for the shot at these cards. Without their support with these reviews giveaways wouldn't be possible. Check them out at Panini America website and all social media sites.


  1. It drives me crazy when a product is released for the previous season this late. We are closer to the 2018 NFL Draft then we are to last seasons Super Bowl, there is no reason for a 2017 product now. I do like the Darboh card though.

    1. This 2017 product was just release? That's ridiculous.

      P.S. Nice Hawks patch though.

    2. I liked the neon green in the patch. But yes, I think the final NFL releases should be done in January
