It’s been a pretty productive week for 18-year-old U.S. Soccer sensation Christian Pulisic. On Monday, the face of American soccer’s bright future became the first soccer player to join Panini America and Panini Authentic as an exclusive athlete. Last night in a pivotal World Cup qualifier against Trinidad and Tobago, Pulisic accounted for both goals in a 2-0 USMNT victory.
Indeed, the kid is leading a soccer revolution in this country. He’s also the leading man for Panini America’s new Revolution Soccer, which arrives in hobby shops across North America on Wednesday. Like Pulisic himself, 2017 Revolution Soccer is, in a word, dazzling. It’s a different-by-design kind of trading card product that places a premium on special-effects parallels featuring names like Astro, Infinite, Fractal, Cosmic, Magna, Disco, Hyperplaid and Galactic.
The product also delivers a rich roster of autographs, which will fall roughly once every other box or so. On average, each hobby box of 2017 Revolution Soccer (five cards per pack, eight packs per box) will yield seven parallels, including at least one numbered to 100 or less. The insert roster features On The Rise, Star-Gazing, Revolutionaries and the ultra-rare Showstoppers, each with its own assortment or parallels.
In the must-see Quality Control Gallery that follows, we offer a revealing sneak peek at 2017 Revolution Soccer. Stick around after the gallery for a complete autograph checklist, which includes the likes of Pulisic, Cristiano Ronaldo, Neymar Jr., Gareth Bale, Lionel Messi and many more.
