Panini America 2015 Rookies & Stars Football QC3

If you were paying close enough attention to the Panini America Twitter feed last week, you no doubt were a firsthand witness to the packout process for the upcoming 2015 Rookies & Stars Football, the company’s Target-exclusive NFL release that’s on its way to stores as you read this. In addition to being a retail-only release this season, the venerable Rookies & Stars Football brand includes new packaging, new inserts, a new base design, new technology, a new configuration and, well, just a little bit of nostalgia from the brand’s proud past.

2015 Rookies & Stars Football is set to arrive in participating Target stores beginning next week, and each six-pack box will deliver five autograph or memorabilia cards and one Longevity Rookies & Stars Embroidered Patch card. Longtime fans of the Rookies & Stars Franchise will appreciate the inclusion of the product’s Longevity elements and the fan-favorite Crusade chase.

There’s also a deft die-cut presence within 2015 Rookies & Stars Football that serves to breathe new life into the franchise. In the Quality Control Gallery that follows, we showcase some of the many gems that surfaced during last week’s packout process. And just in case you missed any of last week’s live Twitter updates, we’ve provided a few of those highlights . . .

Now, to the gallery . . .
