The Panini America Quality Control Gallery: 2015 Certified Football (Must-See Pics)
Panini America’s venerable Certified Football franchise has been an early season collecting staple for almost two decades now, a splendidly colorful parallel-lover’s dream (Behold . . . The Mirrors!) that has utilized familiar, flashy foilboard as the card stock of choice throughout its history. For 2015, the foilboard returns intact, along with the other franchise niceties that have made Certified so popular — including Freshman Fabric Autograph Patch Rookie Cards, the fabled Fabric of the Game insert, Gold Team, Certified Skills and more.
But longtime Certified fans will notice a bold, new base design woven throughout the product (something of a geometrical, shard-driven spectacle) that instantly breathes new life into the brand. Something else that instantly breathes new life into the brand? The debut of Panini America’s cross-brand Super Bowl insert featuring on-card autographs from players who’ve played in the NFL’s greatest game.
Each box of 2015 Certified Football will deliver four autograph or memorabilia cards, including one Freshman Fabric Autograph Patch Card. Each 12-box inner case also will include one Hot Box that delivers four autographs, six memorabilia cards and the Hot Box-exclusive Scorching Swatches insert.
In the gallery that follows, we bring you a comprehensive look at some of the cards that surfaced earlier this week during the Quality Control and Packout processes for 2015 Certified Football. Enjoy the gallery and stay tuned to The Knight’s Lance for continued coverage of Certified, which releases one week from today.
