Teaser Gallery: Panini America Breaks Two Early Boxes of 2015 Contenders Football

January 5, 2016

Panini America 2015 Contenders Football Teaser1

The countdown is on. The hobby version of Panini America’s heavily anticipated 2015 Contenders Football officially arrives tomorrow, kicking off a national collecting holiday that likely won’t end for the next several months. One of the most revered brands in trading card history, Contenders Football is primed for another stirring run to honor the 2015 season with a rich roster of hard-signed Rookie Tickets, SPs, variations and more.

We brought you the comprehensive Quality Control Gallery last week. Today, we rip into two random early boxes to bring you a pack-by-pack breakdown. Each hobby box of 2015 Contenders Football will deliver at least five autographs on average. Included on the autograph checklist this year? The return of autographs from head coaches such as Sean Payton, Chuck Pagano and more.

Enjoy the gallery and stay tuned to The Knight’s Lance for continued coverage. You can access the complete product checklist here.

    Wow! Mariota in the first box! I have tried to pull his pro auto all year with zero luck. Amazing.

    Everyone in San Antonio anxiously awaits Panini Contenders Football Wednesday. As always, 2015 Contenders Football looks great. Love the bonus Autographs in every (on the average) 5-Autograph Box. Great Job!

    With Jarryd Hayne on the Rookie Ticket Variation checklist, does this mean he will have an auto in this product?

    Very Nice! Is there an easy way to tell variations on front again like last year? Blank in the Seat #? Thanks

      Do a search on eBay for 2015 contenders and sort by football. Based on the search results and the above, the variations have the team logo on the top left while the base have a team helmet logo. Makes it easy!

    Just looked through the checklist and noticed Marcus Peters in the product not included in the product. Why?

    Why no Marcus Peters in this set? Selected to the Pro Bowl. Tied for league lead in INTs. He was in the collegiate set. Probable Defensive ROY. Glaring omission, Panini!
