The Panini America Quality Control Gallery: 2016-17 Noir Soccer (93 Sweet Images)
If there’s one thing we learned about Panini America’s 2016 Flawless Soccer product released over the summer, it’s this: There is serious demand for high-end soccer products done right. Boasting a can’t-miss mix of beautiful aesthetics and absolutely stacked rosters of autograph and memorabilia cards, 2016 Flawless Soccer created an industry-wide heat wave that rivaled anything Mother Nature delivered. News flash: Another heat wave is on the way to warm up your December.
Set to arrive in hobby shops across North America on Wednesday, Panini America’s 2016-17 Noir Soccer offers a stark contrast to the traditionally clean Flawless feel with a distinctly dark color scheme and an equally impressive content mix. Although each box of 2016-17 Noir Soccer advertises three autographs and two memorabilia cards, most boxes will over-deliver on that claim.
In the Quality Control Gallery that follows, we showcase a little bit of everything that makes Noir’s soccer debut so impressive, including two distinctly different base sets, the spectacular Spotlight Signatures insert and a robust checklist of signing superstars making their on-card debuts for Panini America. In fact, the list is so strong we’re including in its entirety now:

We’ll have plenty more on 2016-17 Noir Soccer in the coming days right here on The Knight’s Lance. But for now, we’re going to kick some excitement into your Sunday with the following imagery. Enjoy . . .
