The Panini America Quality Control Gallery: 2015 Black Gold Football (102 Sweet Pics)

Panini America 2015 Black Gold Football QC31

When it comes to impressive debuts, Panini America’s premiere edition of Black Gold Football last season taught us all a little something about the true impact of the right first impression. An instant frontrunner for New Product of the Year, 2014 Black Gold Football stood out conceptually, aesthetically and from a pure content perspective. That initial release was warmly embraced by collectors — and immediately raised expectations for all future Black Gold products.

Given that backdrop, it’s no wonder that the collecting Twitterverse was buzzing with excitement last Friday morning when Panini America Football Brand Manager Chris Barr took control of the Panini America Twitter account to bring you live updates from the packout process for 2015 Black Gold Football, the long-awaited follow-up to last season’s debut.

Each box of 2015 Black Gold Football includes two five-card packs and each five-card pack delivers one Shadowbox base card, one Shadowbox insert, one Metallic Logo card, one autograph card and one memorabilia card. In case you missed any of the real-time Twitter action late last week, here are a few of the highlights . . .

In the must-see Quality Control Gallery that follows, we offer a detailed dive into some of the gems that Barr unsurfaced on Friday — and again on Saturday when the QC process concluded. Enjoy the imagery and stay tuned to The Knight’s Lance for continued coverage of 2015 Black Gold Football.

    Tracy, Before I focus on new cards I need to finish my current sets. Maybe you can help me! Does this 2015 NFL Contenders card exist? C.J. Uzomah – card 246, Rookie Ticket variation /199? Its on Panini’s website in the checklist but I haven’t seen one anywhere yet.

    This set is stunning! I really like the Gilded Signature subset, that has set chase written all over it. Thanks Tracy!
