Messi Makes Appearance as Panini America Breaks Three Boxes of 2016-17 Noir Soccer

December 6, 2016


Panini America’s inaugural edition of Noir Soccer arrives in hobby shops and on group-break sites across North America tomorrow packing a content-rich recipe for success earmarked by hard-signed autographs from some of the greatest soccer players on the planet and solid arsenal of memorabilia cards. Boasting deft designs and two distinct versions of the base set.

But it’s the unrivaled international star power that really drives 2016-17 Noir Soccer, headlined by the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi, Robert Lewandowski and so many more. We brought you an initial glimpse at 2016 Noir Soccer’s impressive contents last weekend with a must-see Quality Control Gallery. Today, we’re taking you directly to the box level.

In the Teaser Gallery that follows, we take you card by card through three early boxes of 2016-17 Noir Soccer. So why, exactly, did we include an image of the aforementioned Messi signing at the top of this post? To illustrate that during his most recent Panini America signing session, he signed his cards for 2016 Noir Soccer. But since they didn’t make it back to Panini America HQ in time for packout, they were inserted into Noir as redemptions. (That information will come in particularly handy when you see a card that we pulled in our second box below).

Enjoy the imagery and stay tuned to The Knight’s Lance for continued coverage.

    Oh man, just too lovely. If that Giroud auto needs a home, I know a place in Australia it would be most welcome.

    11 cards instead of 10 for each box?
