Cardboard Kingpins: Panini America Shares Pre-Ink Peek at 2015 Crown Royale Football

September 20, 2015

Panini America 2015 Crown Royale Football Silhouettes Pre-Ink37

Simply, Panini America’s sublime Silhouettes creations are some of the most kingly football cards delivered every year. They’ve absolutely ruled in Crown Royale Football every year since their regal debut in 2010 — and that most certainly will be the case when 2015 Crown Football arrives later this season.

Boasting undeniably devastating aesthetics, massive swatches of player- and game-worn memorabilia and on-card autographs, Silhouettes have become bona fide calling cards in their first five years of existence. As you’ll see in the gallery below, the upcoming sixth iteration promises to be equally captivating.

As you prepare to feast on another scintillating Sunday of NFL action, take some time throughout today’s Week 2 games to appreciate this preliminary pre-ink peek at some of the Silhouettes gems slated to appear later this season in 2015 Crown Royale Football. From the game’s brightest rookies (Marcus Mariota, Jameis Winston, Nelson Agholor, Melvin Gordon and more) to its biggest stars and most iconic legends (Peyton Manning, Dez Bryant, Jerry Rice, Brett Favre and more), the 2015 Crown Royale Football Silhouettes checklist is stacked.

See what we mean in the gallery below and stay tuned to The Knight’s Lance in the coming weeks to check out what these cards look like after they’re signed.

    Love the design but this is the 5th year in a row that the patch window has shrunk from the prior year. A trend that needs to be reversed.

    return to the more coverup silouettes. It must be one of the most popular Crown Royal inserts?

    I love this years design! I love that you guys kept the player Sillohuette in front of the patch. Some people might not like it but I believe most collectors love this design! Keep up the great work guys as always.

    I like the redesign. The rookie cards are going to be red-hot. I’m excited by the veterans represented above. Those are going to scorch hands as they leave their boxes!

    Can’t wait to see these with some ink, always like the early CR previews. Thanks Tracy!

    I love the silhouette cards but I wish you had the player to the side of the swatch. Sometimes with the player being in the middle of the swatch, you lose the beauty of the card. Not a good idea to move the player back to the middle of the card! Epic fail!

    The design looks great! Maybe we’ll luck out and get some less well-known retired players as auto inserts with this set along with the standard fare.

    Epic correction! It’s great to see the player “silhouetted” over the swatch like they were several years ago.
