Panini America Finally Gives Country Music a Trading Card Set to Call its Own (Gallery)

January 22, 2015

Panini America Country Music QC (81)

The seemingly omnipresent appeal of country music and its biggest stars today is inescapable. It’s on the radio . . . at the grocery store . . . on the newsstand . . . on morning talk shows . . . and late-night talk shows . . . and network television . . . and cable television . . . and all over social media and the web. But in the coming days, country music will enter a bold, new frontier: The trading card shop.

Next Wednesday, Panini America will release a standalone trading card set devoted exclusively to the biggest stars — past, present and future — of country music featuring great photography, superstar autographs and unique memorabilia cards embedded with pieces of entertainer-worn clothing. To be sure, Panini Country Music provides a timeless tribute to one of the world’s most beloved musical genres — not to mention some long-overdue Rookie Cards.

We’ve provided a few sneak peeks of the historic release in recent weeks here on The Knight’s Lance. Today, we’re revealing a whole lot more with a comprehensive gallery showcasing the inserts, parallels, autographs and memorabilia cards sure to become instant classics in the coming days.

The short list of headliners appearing in Panini Country Music includes Miranda Lambert, Darius Rucker, Florida Georgia Line, Wynonna, Brantley Gilbert, Joe Nichols, Alabama, Sara Evans, The Band Perry and more. Check them out in the following gallery and stay tuned to The Knight’s Lance for continued coverage.

    Meh, It’s pretty much all Bro Country. Now if you did a Classic Country version of this, with Merle, Waylon, Willie, Dolly, Loretta, hell even some more of the 90’s stars like Garth, Randy Travis, Reba, that would be a set. As it is you have a very shiny example of the artists that are killing the genre.

    Not a very solid product IMO, where are the STARS? no Miranda auto pictured, so other than FGL, Darius, Wynonna and Randy Owen, the others haven’t been relevant in a long time and you can meet them at fairs and get free autos. Get me Brad, Carrie, Keith, Kenny, Luke, Blake and then we can talk.

      The feedback is appreciated. It’s worth noting that we attempted to get all of the big names you mentioned in this first set. We will continue trying for our next one. Our acquisitions team loves a good challenge and can be quite persistent. Stay tuned.

        I love country music and this is a cool idea, but I have met and have autos of most of these so not worth my money to chase a Darius or Miranda, when chances are I get someone from Trick Pony, which I have met and know i have Authentic autos of.

    I like the designs and sports subsets introduced to the country genre, but I was certainly expecting some more classic/recognizable names. Thanks Tracy!
