In order for me to review Panini's newest product on the market, I asked for some backup. I had my wife bust the box with me, yeah he's cool like that, and she helped me out on the review leaving her thoughts for me to put down on here.
2015 Panini Gridrion Kings follows suit of the baseball version Diamond Kings.This is the first time since 2003 that Gridiron Kings comes out as a standalone product. It's a colorful and artistic array of NFL cards against a canvas backdrop. Every card appears as a nice piece of artwork!
As I stated above, the overall product is artistic. Normally, I am not a fan of cards done that way unless they are strictly inserts, but Panini did a great job with it. My wife was also both blown away and drawn in by the color schemes and design. Another thing to note here about the base cards is that there are also RARE Collegiate variations to find. I didn't see one in my box.
Base card back:
Hands down, this Odell Beckham Jr. was my favorite base and framed parallel. Imagine if they had done, "the catch" that way......WOWZAHS!
Deion. I know some like him better in his ATL uni, but I like the SF one. Even though I think he was best known in Dallas.
The other inserts. My phone acting up again with the sideways pics....
Not too shabby as the art theme is found all throughout.
This is a pretty cool insert. The concept and design.
Art Noveau which highlights memorabilia worn by the 2015 NFL Draft Class. It looks similar to Inception, but I like it more. My wife agreed that these looked nice.
The autographs are really cool in this product. Some come framed, some not. Either with or without the sticker auto, things look sharp.
Overall, not too bad. My box wasn't the sharpest, but with a nice design, price point and some big hits hiding within, it's much worth the risk. My wife would agree. She was a huge fan of the product and after I told her the price-point she felt it was worth it. As some of you know, it's best not to argue or be against the Mrs :-D
