The distinctive shadow-box base cards and their parallels. The unique Man of the Match and Stars metal logo cards. The autograph checklist featuring the game’s biggest superstars, brightest young players and all-time legends. It’s all there, just as fans and collectors of Panini America’s Black Gold franchise have come to expect. But for the first time ever, the subject matter is soccer.

Set to arrive in hobby shops across North America on Friday, 2016-17 Black Gold Soccer represents the brand’s inaugural presence on the pitch — and it features the key brand tenets that have driven the product’s success in the NFL, NBA and collegiate sports arenas. Panini America Product Development officials spent some quality time last week packing out Black Gold Soccer in preparation for release. The revealing Quality Control Gallery below details just some of the cards that surfaced during that process.

On average, each two-pack box of 2016-17 Black Gold Soccer delivers two autographs and two Metal Logo cards. Enjoy the imagery that follows and stay tuned to The Knight’s Lance for continued coverage.
