Flawless First Steps: Pioneering Studs Insert Starts Flawless Soccer on the Right Foot

June 15, 2016

Panini America 2016 Flawless Soccer Studs12

One week from today, Panini America’s new 2016 Flawless Soccer product will arrive in hobby shops across North America, sealed in the Flawless brand’s trademark metal briefcase packaging. To be sure, those briefcases won’t be sealed for long. Easily one of the most anticipated sports card releases of the entire year, 2016 Flawless Soccer is equipped to surpass even the most heightened expectations.

We’ve spent some time over the last several months showing you bits and pieces of the coming brilliance. But now that we’re just one week away from release, we’re about to ramp up our preview procedures here on The Knight’s Lance considerably, beginning with the simply sublime Studs insert.

To be sure, the unique match-worn cleats cards you’ll see in the gallery that follows certainly live up to the insert name by incorporating the studs from cleats worn by studs such as Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo, Harry Kane and many more. Pioneering and innovative, the Studs cards are unlike just about any other you’ve ever seen.

You can see exactly what we mean amid the images below. Enjoy, and stay tuned for continued coverage of 2016 Flawless Soccer.

    How does one store and/or protect a Studs card..?

      Very strategically. 🙂 They’ll come protected in a Snap-tite case.

    Those are some of the most outstanding looking cards I’ve seen from a design standpoint, such a great step to issue them encased to save collectors the trouble of figuring out how to store them. Thanks Tracy!

    Cool idea. Can we expect to see something similar in an NFL product down the road?
