Panini America 2018-19 Treble Soccer Main

In soccer parlance, the word “treble” refers to a club team winning three championships in one season. In the soccer collecting lexicon, though, “Treble” refers to Panini America’s newest trading card release that’s set to arrive in December — and it just might make you feel like you’ve won three championships. On average, each three-pack hobby box of 2018-19 Treble Soccer (five cards per pack, three packs per box, five boxes per inner case, two inner cases per master case) delivers one jersey autograph, two additional autograph or memorabilia cards, two inserts, three parallels numbered to 75 or less and one Panini Premiere Rookie Card.

The newest addition to Panini America’s soccer roster, Treble celebrates club soccer teams throughout the world and marks the first time that collectors can pull true RCs of up-and-coming players. The Panini Premieres RC checklist includes 25 players. There are micro-etched parallels of the 175-card base set and 25 Panini Premieres subset numbered to 75 or less as well as 1/1 Platinum Edition parallels.
