    Love the idea. How hard are the autographs to get though? Makes it sound like it’s not 1 per box and paying $100+ for a box without any guaranteed hits will hurt.

    I think they will not be less then $100 a box for sure and autos that’s a tough one! Just imagine opening a pack of a Messi or Ronaldo or even better Pele

    I just like that Panini is bringing great products to the US and this is awesome

    Wowza this stuff is absolutely disgusting ( in a good way ) I’ve been waiting for this for as long as I’ve been a soccer fan which has been forever. Thank you panini for bringing this to life. Well there goes the 2nd mortgage on my house. I will defiantly get my hands on this stuff. Hope it won’t be to hard to find up in Canada.

    This looks to be the best World Cup release ever, probably the best football release ever. Any idea when the full auto checklist will be released?

    This is what I’m waiting for to buy something on the WC14, no teddy bear, caps or t-shirts, cards is the way to go. Doesn’t take place in the house and in 2034 WC, I’m gonna take a box to show to my little kids who’s this old man 20 years ago when they gonna see Messi, CR7 and all the others. Nice work.

  20. February 20, 2014 10:54 pm

    As far we know Panini is not saying there will be guaranteed one autograph per box. And with boxes retailing for well over 125 bucks where is the incentive to buy a box which might not have any autographs at all?

    Normally a box of cards will go for 50 – 80 bucks. To charge double that for no memorabilia or autographs per box isn’t very good marketing. In fact it’s rather insulting to the fans.

    Sure there are some great cards in this collection but let’s give the fans a little something in every box for their hard earned cash after we part with it!

    This product looks fantastic and I definitely wanna pick up a couple of boxes but would like to know the final checklist first.

    Any chance we could get the official checklist?

    Are the autographs real ones?

  36. May 14, 2014 7:54 am

    Does anyone know if there is a collector album available like the UEFA and Road to brazil albums? My 10 yr old has spent all his Christmas and birthday money buying these cards for the last 4 years. I was very excited to get him a box for his bday but am worried he will not have a place to store them or the checklist so he can obsess about the cards he hasnt received yet:)
