Messi, Kempes, Suarez, Felix and More Headline Week 1 of Panini America’s 2021 LaLiga Prizm Blockchain Release

February 28, 2021

Some of the greatest players in the history of LaLiga, as well as the soccer league’s current superstars and future stars, will be the subjects of Panini America’s new 2021 LaLiga Prizm Blockchain initiative that launches tomorrow. This landmark release marks the first time that Panini America will incorporate an entire soccer league into the Blockchain environment.

2021 LaLiga Prizm Blockchain includes 140 base cards (all 1/1s and printed using Prizm’s popular Gold Vinyl parallel) incorporating at least seven players from all 20 LaLiga clubs. In addition, there are an additional 26 autograph cards featuring current LaLiga stars and all-time legends. The Week 1 lineup is headlined by autographs of Joao Felix, Mario Kempes and Javier Mascherano and 1/1 gems of Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Karim Benzema.

Collectors who purchase a 2021 LaLiga Prizm Blockchain digital card on the Panini Blockchain site will receive the physical version of the card free with the purchase. Cards will be released over the course of seven weeks through the Panini Blockchain site or by using the Panini Direct app. The cards will be sold in a Dutch Auction format with prices dropping incrementally until the card is sold.

By using the Panini Blockchain site, collectors will be able to maintain ownership of their Blockchain digital cards and also have the ability to auction the cards securely on the Panini Blockchain to other buyers. In addition, collectors can search the Panini Blockchain site for other auctions. In the near future, the Panini Blockchain site will offer additional functionality such as personal galleries, ownership histories for individual cards and more.

The Week 1 lineup, detailed in the gallery that follows, launches tomorrow at 10 a.m. CST.
