2016 Panini Contenders Football Cards

Grabbed a pack of the 2016 Panini Contenders football cards.  I thought I had reviewed these in passed years but it doesn't look like I have.  I normally prefer cards with full photographs including the background but these aren't bad.  The fronts have a photo of the player and include three pertinent stats for the player.  The stats "SEC", "ROW" and "SEAT" instead of what the actual stat is so it wasn't apparent at first what the stats actually are weight, height and jersey number.
I pulled a pertinent number card (5) but had no idea why that number is important to the two players shown on the card (Jordan Howard - Bears and Paul Perkins - Giants).  It says ROUND 5 on the back so I'll assume that means the round they were drafted.  As to the random numbers they decided to display on the front of the cards - I don't get it.  Of all the stats they decided to go with they went with those?  Kind of a letdown.  So I'm ok with the layout and look of the card but overall I'm not that excited about these cards. 


  1. Wow, I never would have guessed the height, weight and number on the front. Thanks for the info!

    1. Definitely some weird random numbers. I get thinking outside the box but you can't think so far outside it you lose your audience.
