June 1, 2015


In late July, Panini America will unveil an all-new NFL product that promises to be clearly different than anything else on the market — and it’s a difference collectors will be able to see through. Featuring acetate technology on every card, 2015 Clear Vision Football will deliver the first trading cards of the top 2015 rookies in their NFL uniforms, along with the first NFL Shield memorabilia cards of the top rookies.

What’s more, 2015 Clear Vision Football will feature a short-but-stacked autograph roster that includes only the most collectible players in the game. Each six-pack box of 2015 Clear Vision Football (three cards per pack) will yield two Rookie Cards, one insert or parallel, one parallel (all parallels numbered to 99 or less), one thick glass card and one autograph or memorabilia card.

Each nine-box inner case will provide one Veteran Photo Variation, four Rookie Photo Variations, six memorabilia cards (all memorabilia cards are numbered to 99 or less), two Prime, Patch or Tag memorabilia cards and one autograph. Additional highlights of the product include . . .

  • All autographs are limited to 50 or less and feature only the game’s most collectible players.
  • Unique memorabilia cards utilizing oversized swatches and acetate technology, headlined by the Clear Vision Jumbo Jersey and Clear Cloth Jersey inserts; every memorabilia card is sequentially numbered to 99 or less.
  • An all-acetate base set featuring Blue (numbered to 99), Red (numbered to 25), Gold (numbered to 10), Green (numbered to five) and Purple (numbered to only one) parallels.
  • The Clear Vision Signatures and Visionary Signatures autograph sets that feature only the best of the best, including Tom Brady, Andrew Luck, Peyton ManningBo Jackson, John ElwayBarry Sanders and more.
  • Unique acetate inserts such as Team Vision and Clarity.

We’ll have plenty more on the unique 2015 Clear Vision Football in the coming weeks right here on The Knight’s Lance. But until then, enjoy this first extended sneak peek. After the gallery, stick around for the preliminary autograph roster.

    I’ve always liked acetate cards. These look very promising. Any word on the price range yet?

    Looks pretty neat. Which of these (if any) will be like the 2014 Elite Clarity cards? Loved those.

    Kind of like the recent clear rookie and Q cards. I like the Clear Vision cards you showed and Black & Gold is coming back again this season?

    • June 1, 2015 6:41 pm

      Yes, Black Gold is returning in 2015.

        That alone is good news. Black Gold was amazing!

      When is enough enough? The interest certainly appears to be there, so the market obviously will bear it just fine.

    So does that mean its one auto per 9-box case?

    Reblogged this on Locating Frankenstein's Brain.

    Looks like a really sweet product.

    Sound like a great product! Lower price point is always good. I’m sure some people will not like just one auto per case(I would usually be one of them) but with a top notch autograph checklist like Clear has, at least u know the auto will be a big name and not any scrub player nobody wants, so I’m in! I think that should increase the value of the autos in the product and rookie cards. I’d do ANYTHING to be lucky enough to pull one of those Tom Brady autos! Great job Panini’

    Time to buy stock in acetate, it seems.

    My concern is how autographs wear and weather time on acetate. Those of us who have been collecting since the mid-90’s have watched cherished autos slowly evaporate from some card stocks while blurring and growing utterly illegible on still others.

    Some great technology used in this set, it’ll be interesting to see who the players featured on the hits will be. I hope it’s more veteran heavy than rookies. Thanks Tracy!

    This product looks really promising. I look forward to busting into some. Kind of curious. How thick are these acetate cards? Are they cardboard thick or mem card thick?

    • June 3, 2015 2:29 pm

      A few of the inserts are the thicker versions. The base is more “cardboard” thickness.

    Robert, with Panini’s product quality, design, and overall customer service its not enough yet. Keep coming up with great cards.

    Going back and forth with this product. I agree we are getting too many products put out and there is only so much money most of us regular collectors can spread around on more and more products. But it does have a good price point, design is ok not great, and they are limiting patches more which is great sign. Since at this point they are almost worthless hit fillers unless it’s a superstar player and it looks amazing.

    It’s getting hard and hard when you only have so much money every year to spend on the hobby to pick and choose a product that will be 1. Fun 2. Value 3. Good chance to hit big 4. Looks good 5. Not overprice.

  15. June 3, 2015 7:45 pm

    I LOVE the idea of this product. A very accessible price point, a base set that is unique, well designed, and potentially has a little value. No cheap, worthless, filler hits. I know the hits are fewer, but they are far more desirable, especially the autos! I’m also a huge fan of the acetate cards. This is an excellent model for a product going forward!

    I’m usually not a fan of the so-called “Hyper High End” product with the quality over quantity mentality. Because I sure as heck can’t afford to shell out $250 for what will likely amount to a pile of dust-collecting garbage. Clear Vision, however, sounds like it has a lot of promise.

    1) Acetate stock are by far the coolest and best cards out there. There’s so much that can be done and are very desirable!

    2) If the top-tier autos are in fact top-tier, you’re good. However, there could be issues if there are any corners cut. If even 1 “B-list” subject makes the auto list, it could be really bad. I expect to see a lot of good QB’s, superstar RB’s and WR’s, a TE or two, and a handful of first-round only draft picks, probably top 10 picks and offensive positions only. JJ Watt and Suh and a few other defensive players would be the exception to the above though.

    3) The price point is great. $66 a box? ~$20 a pack? I can roll the dice on that. It would be nice to see if there are boxes with “bonus” hits though so if the first pack that is bought has the hit, the other two don’t just sit there endlessly.

    Look forward to seeing if Panini delivers on this one!

    I bought a Phillip Dorsett auto, I freaking love this card, kinda pricey in my books only cuz I have 2 kids and broke, wife not to happy, but well worth it, and I love how there are 50 total on the autos, it makes it that more rare and if he ends up being a stud, the price will only go up, but a long way from seeing how he will turn out, awesome cards panini
