April 23, 2015

Panini America 2015 Contenders Draft Picks Football Uncut (46)

One week from tonight, the 2015 NFL Draft will kick off in Chicago, setting in motion a dramatic series of events that will largely dictate the football collecting landscape for the next year. Make no mistake about it: The draft picks are coming — and Panini America’s 2015 Contenders Draft Picks Football is coming, too. The company’s first collegiate product since securing exclusive trading card rights to more than 400 colleges and universities over the winter, 2015 Contenders Draft Picks Football is hot on the presses as we speak.

Earlier today, we got our first look at the product thanks to a special delivery from the Panini America production facility: The first uncut sheets from three different forms, 100-up sheets of collegiate greatness featuring set staples such as Game Day Tickets, School Colors, Old School Colors, Passing Grades, Rush Week and more.

In the gallery that follows, we present a must-see examination of the set — including Panini America’s first trading cards of Jameis Winston, Marcus Mariota and the rest of the exciting 2015 NFL Draft Class. You’ll also notice your favorite NFL stars as they appeared in college. Enjoy the gallery and stay tuned to The Knight’s Lance for continued coverage of 2015 Contenders Draft Picks Football.

    I can’t wait to chase the Melvin Gordons! Is there a release date for this yet?

    ….does this mean that there will be Charles Woodson and Tom Brady autographs in this set? Can it possibly be true?

    love it. That auto parallel set is going to be crazy if all of those guys actually sign.

    Not sure I’ve ever seen a card of Sherman in Stanford uniform… that might be a first.

      did a couple searches and think I was right about Sherman. Thought maybe welker too but there’s an 04 reflections (and probably more).

    Those are so much cooler than the initial previews awhile back. This new design is so much better than 2014’s Contenders design.

    Wonder what the odds of an auto will be in retail…

    Looks excellent so far, always fun to see cards mid-production like this. Thanks Tracy!
