The Panini America Quality Control Gallery: 2015 Contenders Football (100+ Pics)
It’s ironic, really, that one of the NFL’s most iconic trading card releases year in and year out bears the name “Contenders.” After all, it’s so much more than a contender every single year. It’s more like a trading card champion, an immediate Product of the Year front-runner packing landmark Rookie Ticket autographed Rookie Cards, variations, short prints and a compelling array of inserts honoring the game’s greatest superstars, veterans and newcomers.
And so it is with the highly anticipated 2015 Contenders Football, which has been quality controlled, packed out and is on its way to hobby shops across North America as you read this. It goes live January 6, just six short days from now. In the gallery that follows, we showcase a little bit of everything that this year’s release has to offer in order to get you properly prepared.
Each hobby box of 2015 Contenders Football delivers at least five autographs (including one to two on-card), three Pennants, two Rookie of the Year Contenders, one MVP Contenders, one Legendary Contenders and two additional inserts. As you’ll see below, 2015 Contenders Football pays homage to Contenders’ early years with a healthy dose of die-cut inserts.
Enjoy the Quality Control Gallery and stay tuned to The Knight’s Lance for continued coverage of 2015 Contenders Football. Oh, and from all of us at Panini America: Happy New Year!
