Was looking on cardboardconnections and they have a breakdown and release day (25/04/2018) on the World Cup Series.

https://www.cardboardconnection.com/2018-panini-prizm-world-cup-soccer-cards

Was wondering how many other people are looking at busting a few boxes or going after certain Play/Autos depending when checklist gets released and who has signed.
Just I have no idea, what to expect when it comes to Panini products besides a million Parallels inserts.
Any help/comments and or opinions would be greatly appreciated.
:)

Expect a million parallels.......... that's what has and always will, keep me away from most Panini cards.

Tempted to crack a few Panini World Cup 2018 cases open and give the Futera a miss this year. I wouldn't mind getting a parallel set together, maybe one or two other subsets plus autos depending on difficulty and pricing.

I'll probably get a few packs at the $5 price. Not bad considering you can hit a Ronaldo auto. Are the dual triple and quad autos only featuring the players that signed the regular autos does any one know?

G'day,

I'll probably collect the Australian players. Can someone please tell me the best websites to purchase the hard-to-get parallels. I'm still trying to find the green crystal, gold and gold power AUS parallels from the 2014 Prizm collection.

Thanks

Haven't seen any updates on checklists and player autos with release about 3 weeks away. How close to release date do Panini generally give details of the full set?

That's not very good by Panini for anyone who wants to pre-order not knowing who's signed. I noticed on the Panini blog that there's also a National Treasures release in early June claiming debut signatures including Phillipe Coutinho who's listed as one of the prizm autos on the link provided by Alan further up the thread. Is he going to debut twice?

@baggies The 2014 World Cup release, they ended up giving an auto list that had a heap of names on it.... by the time of the release the auto list had diminished a fair bit. Names like Ronaldo (Original), Ronaldinho, etc were named but never eventuated. They're probably saving some backlash by not listing the list until it's all 100%.

That makes sense but nothing stopping them from releasing more of the ones they know. Maybe Coutinho is not signing Prizm if he's debuting National Treasures.

@Wattsup Stuff that, I won't be going anywhere near these. The autograph list doesn't seem that crash hot bar one or two players. Not many new signers too.

In 2014 when Panini made their first soccer release, it wasn't perfect, however it was a very very good release. They soon realised that the soccer card market is huge! They then proceeded to milk it as much as possible and went overboard over the past 4 years with release upon release. Where has this all led too...... boxes at release being $180US then 2 months down the track they are being flogged for $80US, well done Panini, you greedy grilled cheese merchants.

I've just opened 1st box from a case and can't work out which prizm is which. Some look the same as the base cards with prizm under the number, others are easier to separate. Got a Gylfi Sigurdsson signature, Admir Mehmedi 035/149 & Shinji Kagawa 085/199 numbered cards.
