The Panini America Quality Control Gallery: 2016-17 Noir Soccer (93 Sweet Images)

December 4, 2016


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:

Aaron Ramsey
Alvaro Morata
Andres Iniesta
Anthony Martial
Antoine Griezmann
Carlos Bacca
Cesc Fabregas
Daley Blind
David Alaba
Dele Alli
Edin Dzeko
Edinson Cavani
Gary Cahill
Graziano Pelle
Ivan Perisic
Ivan Rakitic
Jamie Vardy
Kevin De Bruyne
Luka Modric
Marko Arnautovic
Martin Skrtel
Matteo Darmian
Memphis Depay
Neymar Jr.
Nikola Kalinic
Olivier Giroud
Paco Alcacer
Patrice Evra
Paulo Dybala
Petr Cech
Raphael Varane
Robert Lewandowski
Rui Patricio
Samir Handanovic
Stefan de Vrij
Thomas Muller

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 . . .
