Drool Gallery: 2011 Crown Royale Football Calling All Captains Materials Prime

October 30, 2011

Among the myriad things to appreciate about the new 2011 Crown Royale Football set that released earlier this week, you can place the Calling All Captains Materials Prime insert high on the list.

From the unique “C” die-cut to the unmistakable¬†medieval¬†inspiration of the design to the top-notch checklist of players, Calling All Captains brings a lot to the table. Throw in the multi-colored fabulousness of the prime-memorabilia variation and you have an insert set that would be right at home on display in a museum.

So as we all get ready to appreciate Week 8 of the 2011 NFL season, here’s a drool-inducing look at some of the sweetest cards in the set.

    Those are some sick patches…where are all of the Gmen???? The jones-drew one is awesome though. 3 colored and straight across. Wow!

    Pretty cool idea to put the C cut into it.

    Any chance you get actual jerseys with the captain patch on it? That would make a great hit for NT.

    The C for Captain really looks great against a great design. With the prime materials they really stand out with the multiple colors.

    Had to come back and view these again! The Peterson is sweet too. I like the non prime ones as well Just like the one you guys pulled from your box break on The Knights Lance.

    While the set is nicely themed and the multi-color patches are certainly a welcome respite from single color patches in mid-high end products, I don’t understand the giddiness. I don’t mean to rain, but I don’t get the medieval connection. The inspired, “Score Franchise Tags” from the ’01 Score Select product bears autos of players of similar calibre and were appropriately rare, limited to just 50 copies per. Tony Gonzalez, Troy Aikman, Jerome Bettis, Curtis Martin, Junior Seau and other similar…and some lesser lights can be found in that legendary set. This is nice…but I expect something of this quality of I’m paying a $90-110 on a 6 pack box.
