Review:2015 Panini Clear Vision Football

An all acetate base product? I had to see this and was fortunate that I was able to.

Before I continue on, I must thank Panini America for the review box and you can look for some of these cards in a future giveaway. Please take a minute out to thank them as well.

Now onto the review.

In every box of 2015 Panini Clear Vision is 6 packs of 3 cards. You will find either an autograph or jersey card per box and at least one rookie, parallel, insert or hit per pack. Each box runs just under $60.

The packaging is CLEAR where you can see the packs in your VISION.


The base cards are all acetate. I think the design is "clear" and nice as well.

There are a couple of subsets within as well such as Sophomore Standouts

And Rookie Revision

Rookie cards match the base design with just a rookie logo.


There are five parallels. Blue, Red, Gold, Green , and Purple.This is a blue parallel.You can tell the parallels by the numbering and the color of the lines in the background.
ive levels of numbered parallels: Blue (#’d to 99), Red (#’d to 25), Gold (#’d to 10), Green (#’d to 5) and Purple (#’d 1/1). - See more at: http://www.dacardworld.com/blog/panini/2015-panini-clear-vision-football-preview/#sthash.Kz5N2blw.dpuf

Thick acetate Clarity returns.
And probably my favorite card of the box, Clear Shots. These are beauties.Reminds me of the 90's. I would have loved to had seen these as the base set instead.

The pics a bit blurry and I am sorry for that, but that's just an acetate window that was hard to capture. There is a decent size swatch. My only fix would have been making the player photo bigger. 

N/A in this box
Tough pulls only one per inner case. Tons of value if you find one as most are top players.

I like the product. The look is nice but it's definitely not going to be for everyone. The one hit per box  and limited number of cards may scare some away at the $60 price point. But if you were a 90's collector or one who likes acetate, this is up your alley. Big hit thrill seekers, unless you are buying an inner case or case, this probably isn't for you. But, I am not saying don't try it anyways. The design alone to me is worth the risk.

  1. I really like this set. Almost makes me wish I collected football! Hopefully they won't get sticky, as some of the acetate cards of the 1990s did.
