Panini America 2014 FIFA World Cup Prizm Peek (5)
We’ve had a front-row seat to the collectibles kickoff of the global sensation that is the FIFA World Cup in recent days as Panini’s 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil Sticker Collection has started popping up in retail locations across the world and on iCollectPanini.com. The resulting frenzy, however fascinating, is sure to pale in comparison to what we see around the world as the 2014 FIFA World Cup draws closer in the next few months and the Sticker Collection continues arriving in retail locations.
For millions of rabid World Cup collectors across the globe, the Panini Sticker Collection is must-have material; a feel-good family affair that spans generations and ranks up there with breathing and eating as daily requirements for several months every four years. Of course, all of this World Cup excitement this week got us at Panini America thinking about another 2014 FIFA World Cup collection generating a fair amount of buzz in its own right: The 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil Prizm trading card set.

We’ve been noticeably quiet on the Prizm World Cup front since our initial announcement in late February. But a lot has happened in the last six weeks or so. A slew of collection-making autographs from superstars and legends has been returned. The first 100-card form has been designed and printed, complete with an absolutely stunning array of colorful parallels. In fact, when we first caught a glimpse of that first form, we simply couldn’t wait to show it off.
So that’s what we’re going to do today. What you’re about to see is the first form of the 2014 FIFA World Cup Prizm set — and all of its parallels — in their glorious uncut-sheet form. Keep in mind that this is just the base-card form. In the coming days and weeks, we’ll share more sneak peeks of the insert sets and autographs right here on The Knight’s Lance.
But for now, feast your eyes on these beauties . . .
