Panini America Offers Stunning First Pics of 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil™ Prizm Autos

May 1, 2014

Cristiano Ronaldo Prizm Blog

To suggest that the images you’re about to see represent one of the most anticipated viewings in FIFA World Cup™ collectibles history is by no means overstating things. Sitting here less than one week away from the U.S. release of Panini America’s 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil™ Prizm trading card set, the global anticipation for this bona fide blockbuster seems tangibly electric. And you’re about to get your first look at one of the chief reasons why: The set’s simply sublime autographed cards.

Yesterday, we brought you images of the 50 global soccer legends signing their autographs for the set. Today, we’re bringing you something equally as striking: The first images anywhere of the finished product.

From the beginning, Panini America officials set out to build one of the greatest autograph checklists in the history of soccer trading cards. Just last week, after spending more than a year planning and executing (and spending a small fortune on international shipping charges), the 50th and final signer, Roberto Carlos, finally returned his autographs.

In addition to ensuring that 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil™ Prizm would be 100 percent redemption free, Carlos’ special delivery made Panini America’s crazily ambitious objective a near-miraculous reality. The result? Nothing less than the greatest autograph checklist in the history of soccer cards.

From all-time legends such as Pelé, Franz Beckenbauer and Jürgen Klinsmann, to current superstars such as Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo and Clint Dempsey, Panini America succeeded in crafting an autograph set for the ages. One look at the gallery below and we think you’ll agree.

For your viewing pleasure, we’ve included images of every autograph card in the set (including base, Prizm and Black Prizm 1/1 versions of some cards) with the exception of Carlos’. (We’ll bring you a glimpse of his card as soon as we get it.)

Enjoy the gallery, and stay tuned to The Knight’s Lance for continued coverage of Panini America’s 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil™ Prizm set.

    I know that it’s not easy to ship the cards to the players or to ship the players to the cards…but still…sticker autos on such beautiful cards?

    This is far and away the most amazing soccer product I`ve ever seen in my life. The Pele / C.Ronaldo dual auto alone makes this product a `must buy`. Panini, you`ve outdone yourselves.

    Feast your eyes on these beauties!!!

    WOW!!

    Now, I know that sticker autos aren’t everyone’s cuppa but even without the autos it looks as if Panini have put together a truly stunning set of cards with these 2014 World Cup Prizm! The Prizms themselves are one parallel set well worth chasing… Pulling an auto would just be the cherry on top!

    Well done Panini!!

    I have been waiting for a soccer product like this for a long time thanks Panini. Is it too early too ask for Copa America Centenario set?? Maybe with jersey cards and autographs….? Are those the only dual autographs in the set?

    Give me, give me, give me! I can’t wait any longer!

    I read this is also going to be available Mass Retail will it be just available in the hanging four packs? Or is it the usual blasters and singles retail packs as well?

    Sticker autos?!?! Still a nice set though. Panini…you have 4 years to get on-card autos for the 2018 World Cup. I’m sure you can use these 4 years to get OCA’s next time around.
