The Panini America Quality Control Gallery: 2018 Treble Soccer (100+ Must-See Pics)

December 4, 2018

Panini America 2018 Treble Soccer QC Gallery1

Panini America’s new 2018 Treble Soccer product hits the pitch tomorrow for the first time and as with any new made-from-scratch product, there’s a little bit of mystery surrounding what it’s all about. But in the revealing Quality Control Gallery that follows, we’re going to replace that mystery with cold, hard details. On average, each three-pack hobby box (five cards per pack) delivers three hits: One autograph, one autograph-memorabilia card and one additional autograph or memorabilia card. In addition, each box also delivers, on average, three vibrantly colored and micro-etched parallels numbered to 75 or less.

The club-based product features superstars from across the globe, including 30 players featured with new clubs for the first time such as Cristiano Ronaldo with  Juventus, Mateo Kovacic’s debut with Chelsea FC, the first sighting of Gianluigi Buffon with PSG and more. Look for other stars from clubs such as Real Madrid, FC Barcelona, FC Bayern Munich, Paris Saint-Germain and more.

Treble also marks the first product in which collectors can land true Rookie Cards of up-and-coming players. The 25-card Panini Premiere set is loaded with players on the rise, and these cards are the first officially licensed trading cards of such standouts as Malcom (FC Barcelona), Kepa (Chelsea FC), Jadon Sancho (Borussia Dortmund), Mattia Perin (Juventus) and Timothy Weah (PSG). Panini Premiere RCs fall one per box, on average and feature micro-etched parallels numbered to 75 or less.

But despite all of those highlights, perhaps the biggest draw for hardcore soccer fans will be Treble’s debut of the spectacular World Cup Sticker Signatures insert. This set celebrates the heritage of the phenomenon that is Panini World Cup Stickers. The World Cup Sticker Signature set is loaded with international superstars and includes the debut autographs of Christian Eriksen and Aaron Mooy. These unique cards fall one-to-two per case, on average.

In all, 2018 Treble Soccer features seven unique autograph inserts featuring a spectacular checklist of signers that includes . . .

Current: Neymar Jr, Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo, Gareth Bale, Thomas Muller, Paulo Dybala, Edinson Cavani, Isco, Luis Suarez, Luka Modric, Robert Lewandowski, Philippe Coutinho, Christian Pulisic, Marco Asensio (Debut!), Thibaut Courtois, Diego Costa, Manuel Neuer, Michy Batshuayi, Radamel Falcao Garcia

Retired: Diego Maradona, Thierry Henry, Ronaldo, Ronaldinho, Alessandro Del Piero, Dennis Bergkamp, Paolo Rossi, Patrick Kluivert, Julio Salinas, Robert Prosinecki, Davor Suker, Carlo Ancelotti, Ivan Zamorano, Ruud Gullit, Christian Vieri, Michael Ballack, Michael Owen, Gary Neville

Additionally, find a special addition to Treble’s autograph offerings with the first certified autographs of Quini, legend of the Spanish national team, Sporting Gijon and FC Barcelona. In January of 2018, Panini held a signing session with Quini, which was the first time he had signed with any trading card company. In February, Quini unexpectedly passed away. These cards will serve as his first and only certified autographs.

In the gallery that follows, we showcase a little bit of everything that 2018 Treble Soccer has to offer. Enjoy the sneak peek and stay tuned to The Knight’s Lance for additional coverage.

The product will be available on the official online store of Panini America beginning tomorrow at 12 p.m. CST.
