As you’ve no doubt seen by now, tomorrow’s release of Panini America’s 2015 Gridiron Kings Football has plenty to offer fans and collectors who’ve been without the product for more than 10 years. Most of the brand staples that collectors coveted before and have come to expect — such as colorful cards that look more like works of art, Framed parallels and more — are back in a big way.

But there’s at least one surprise element in the product that longtime Gridiron Kings devotees might not expect: College Variations in the base set. Ten of the NFL’s biggest superstars are pulling double duty within the 2015 Gridiron Kings Football base set by appearing in both their current NFL uniforms and in their college uniforms. And trust us when we tell you: The college variations are super tough, falling at a rate of roughly one every two cases.

In the revealing sneak peek that follows, we showcase both cards for each of the 10 SP players: Dez Bryant, Andrew Luck, Aaron Rodgers, Tom Brady, Cam Newton, Odell Beckham, Jr., J.J. Watt, Peyton Manning, Julio Jones and Charles Woodson. Enjoy the sneak peek and stay tuned to The Knight’s Lance for continued coverage of 2015 Gridiron Kings Football.
