Football cards 2022: what to expect
Panini continues to hold exclusive rights to the NFL and NFLPA. This means that they are the only company that makes NFL player uniform and logo cards. Panini also has exclusive rights to the vast majority of colleges and universities, allowing them to imagine players in school equipment.
But that doesn’t mean they’re the only company making football cards in 2022. Leaf, Topps, Onyx and others are also in the game. Although they cannot use NFL trademarks, these sets are generally targeted at prospects and rookies. With new and emerging NIL rights, that also means cards for players who are still in college, not just those entering the draft.
The NFL card season is starting later than usual as all card companies continue to deal with the supply chain issues of the previous year and the domino effect it caused.
