The Kickoff: Panini America Begins Packout for 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil™ Prizm

April 25, 2014

Panini America 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil Prizm Inserts Part One (43)

You’ve seen preliminary product information from that initial headline-grabbing announcement in late February. You’ve seen the uncut sheet previews here, here and here. Now, following so much pre-release buzz, we’re finally ready to start showing off some honest-to-goodness finished cards from Panini America’s 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil™ Prizm set, a release that could very well go down as one of the most globally collected trading card sets in . . . well . . . forever.

And that would likely be true even if 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil™ Prizm didn’t feature arguably the greatest soccer autograph checklist ever assembled (which it does). But we’ll get to that legendary list of signers next week. Today, we’re bringing you up close and personal with some of the set’s shimmering insert cards and their various splendid parallels — just some of the results from the packout process that began in earnest late last week.

Some of the product began shipping to international destinations earlier this week. U.S. collectors can expect to find the product on shelves starting around May 7. Trust us, though, we’ll have plenty more previews to share between now and then. But today, sit back and enjoy this . . .

    These look great, good job! Can I ask two quick questions.
    1) I didn’t realise the mascot and stadium had numbered parallels. Are these the same as the different base parallels?
    2) will any of the autographs be by redemption, or are they all pack inserted?

      They are the same, yes, sir. And . . .no redemptions. 100 percent live autographs!

    Well written Tracy! Will there be a guaranteed auto per box or will they be inserted in rations such as 1 in every 3 or something? Thanks! Go Mean Green

      Go Mean Green indeed! Appreciate the kind words. Not one autograph in every box, but not far off of that. Not sure what the final ratio is, but will let you know when I do.

    Panini took the best world sport and put it on Prizm cardboard, can you say “Amazing”? May 7th can not get here soon enough.
