It’s safe to say at this point that Panini America’s multi-dimensional foray into the international world of soccer trading cards has been an undeniable success. From the feeding frenzy created by the Prizm and Flawless brands to the steady heat caused by the likes of Donruss and Select, the company’s steady soccer rollout has been well received both domestically and abroad. Tomorrow, that trend continues when Panini America’s popular Spectra brand makes its highly anticipated soccer debut.
Bolstered by the vibrant colors and spectacular special effects that have become calling cards of the Spectra franchise, 2016-17 Spectra Soccer arrives in hobby shops across North America with 10-card hobby boxes delivering, on average, five autograph or memorabilia cards, a base parallel numbered to 75 or less, a die-cut parallel numbered to 65 or less and three base cards.
We gave you a Quality Control Gallery glimpse at the product last week. Today, we’re taking you card by card through four early boxes to round out our preview coverage. Enjoy the imagery and stay tuned to The Knight’s Lance for continued coverage.
