The Panini America Quality Control Gallery: 2017 Nobility Soccer (90+ Must-See Pics)

October 04, 2017

Panini America 2017 Nobility Soccer QC2

It seems only appropriate that one of the greatest soccer legends of all time, Brazil’s iconic Pelé, plays a pivotal role in Panini America’s live-Friday 2017 Nobility Soccer, the company’s first soccer product dedicated almost entirely to the beautiful game’s retired greats. Perhaps none are greater, though, than Pelé, who is the subject of a special 10-card insert set featuring pieces of Pelé’s match-worn Santos jersey. The final five cards in the set will be autographed by the legend.

As you’ll see in the revealing Quality Control Gallery that follows, the Pelé cards are simply sublime. And although many of 2017 Nobility Soccer’s calling cards have “Pelé” all over them, there’s so much more to the product for longtime soccer aficionados to cherish. Set to arrive in hobby shops across North America on Friday, 2017 Nobility Soccer will deliver, on average, two autographs (at least one will be on-card), four base-set SPs, four inserts and four parallels in every hobby box (20 cards per pack, two packs per box, eight boxes per case).

Only eight active players make the cut in Nobility: Lionel MessiCristiano RonaldoWayne RooneyClint DempseyChristian PulisicRafael MarquezGianluigi Buffon and Manuel Neuer. The base set that includes 80 icons of soccer’s past, including Pelé, Raul, Jurgen KlinsmannRuud van Nistelrooy and many more. The base set is paralleled by six chase-worthy versions in Red (numbered to 199), Blue (numbered to 99), Orange (numbered to 49), Bronze (numbered to 20), Gold (numbered to 10) and Black 1/1s.

On average, each eight-box case will deliver one autograph from a checklist that includes Andriy Shevchenko, Fabio Cannavaro, Thierry Henry, Eric Cantona, Diego Maradona, Pele, Paolo Maldini, Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo, Christian Pulisic, Gabriel Batistuta and Karl-Heinz Rummenigge.
