'El Samba' World Cup Prizm 1/1s Launching on Panini America's New eBay Platform

June 12, 2014

To coincide with today’s opening of the 2014 FIFA World Cup, Panini America has created a one-of-a-kind “El Samba” parallel version of its internationally popular 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil Prizm trading card set that will be available exclusively on the company’s new eBay platform beginning today. Inspired by the yellow-and-green colorway of the host country, the “El Samba” 1/1 parallels feature both a color scheme and printing pattern that were not utilized in the original Prizm product.
Panini America will launch 10 new three-day auctions each day throughout the World Cup, beginning with today’s first lot, which includes stars from Brazil, Croatia, Chile and Australia. As the World Cup progresses, Panini America will also add 1/1 “El Samba” parallel autographs to the auction roster.
