Michael Jackson Must-See: Panini Honors The King of Pop’s Top 20 Achievements
Let’s be honest: If we really wanted to create a trading card set that honored the greatest achievements of Michael Jackson’s storied career, we’d need a whole lot more than just 20 cards. Heck, we’d need that many cards just to cover his pre-teen years.
So we really had to scrutinize The King of Pop’s remarkable resume to select his most notable accomplishments for inclusion in the 20-card Achievements subset in the early June release of Panini America’s official Michael Jackson trading card set.
We hope diehard MJ devotees and casual fans alike find our selections — including his 1984 Grammys for Record of the Year (“Billie Jean”), Album of the Year (“Thriller”), his 1993 Living Legend Award and his 1995 Guinness World Record for Most Expensive Video (“Scream” at the cost of $7 million) — to be spot on.
You can view all 20 Achievements cards (fronts and backs) in the captivating gallery below. Stay tuned to The Knight’s Lance for continuing coverage of this history-making card set, including an upcoming post on the unique Jackson-worn memorabilia incorporated into the set.
