Panini America Takes Glorious First Look at Upcoming 2016 Flawless Soccer (Gallery)
Panini America executives made major collectibles industry waves during the company’s annual Tuesday corporate address earlier this week at the 2016 Industry Summit, shedding light on several interesting developments sure to grip collectors for the better part of the coming year. We’ll get into some of the more intriguing announcements from Tuesday’s address at a later date. Today, however, we’re focusing on the upcoming juggernaut known as 2016 Flawless Soccer.
Panini America’s upcoming high-end soccer release was first referenced during Tuesday’s corporate address and almost immediately sent collecting’s social media universe buzzing. As luck would have it, the first finished cards for 2016 Flawless Soccer started arriving back at Panini America HQ in the last several days, hot off the presses from the company’s production facility.
In the gallery that follows, we offer a preliminary pre-ink peek at just some of the gems planned for the product, including Cristiano Ronaldo, Tim Howard, Xavi Hernandez and Guillermo Ochoa. Trust us, there will be many more previews (and a lot more players) to come — especially after these beauties are signed.
Enjoy this tantalizing initial glimpse and stay tuned to The Knight’s Lance for continued coverage of 2016 Flawless Soccer.
