Preview: 2012 Panini Crown Royale Football

Releasing today is the newest installment of Crown Royale football from Panini. In this third year, I believe, Panini has tried to freshen up the product a bit in the design department and add some new cards to the mix.

Returning again is the highly collected Rookie Silhouettes autographed cards. These cards feature large swatches of jersey or patches and a signature on the card. Collectors love these cards and it is a top hit in every box. Also being featured are a number of NFL legends in this subset, which is a great new addition.

But making their debut in Crown Royale this year is the Panini’s Choice autographed insert. You may remember these cards if you follow Panini’s basketball products or are a fan of the past cards from Pacific. These die-cut pyramid style cards feature beautiful autographs as well and die-cut goodness.

There will also be a few new die-cut inserts along the way too along with the typical die-cut base card design. It’s a set that is definitely not square. Or some would say, cutting edge. We could work with the puns all day if we wanted to.

Each box contains four packs with each pack containing an autograph or a memorabilia card. You are guaranteed at least two autographs with one being one of the aforementioned Rookie Silhouettes cards. The others will be memorabilia or additional autographs.

You can find the product on DA Card World for about $100. You can also find the checklist on Cardboard Connection and more information from the official Panini blog.
