Is there a nicer card design on the market than Panini's Prime Silhouette?

A lot has changed for Panini America’s now-legendary Silhouettes subset since it burst onto the collecting scene with a stunning, starring turn as the Rookie Die Cut Material Autographs insert in 2010 Crown Royale Football. The instant-classic design was majestic in its presentation and raised the bar in terms of just how beautiful autographed memorabilia cards could be reports Panini's Tracey Hackler

In the years since, the name “Silhouettes” has become synonymous with the most attractive trading cards in the sports collecting universe. Panini America features Silhouettes across all four major sports and they’re as striking on Rookie Cards as they are on cards of current superstars and retired legends. 

The following images show some of this year’s (2013-14) Silhouettes after they had already been counted, cataloged and quality controlled and just before being packed for shipment to the respective players on them to receive on-card autographs.

This year will see the debut of some players into the Silhouette club, including the likely Rookie of the Year, Michael Carter Williams.
