In recent years, the hobby has become accustomed to guaranteed autographs and memorabilia in hobby boxes. 2014 Panini Prizm World Cup Soccer is a bit of a throwback in this regard. While you're promised eight Prizm parallels, autographs are a bonus of sorts.

Rather than having a massive checklist that has plenty of undesirable names, the set goes for a less-is-more approach. Instead of one per box, autographs seem to be falling every two or three hobby boxes. If all you're after is hits, that's a big risk given the price tag. But if you do land a 2014 Panini Prizm World Cup Autograph, you're definitely looking at something that shouldn't be in a dollar bin at the card show in a couple of months.

Some of the bigger names include Pele, Cristiano Ronaldo, Roberto Baggio and Lionel Messi. Early listings of these cards on eBay have reached well into the hundreds. Even the lower-tier signers are doing very well.

A huge part of this is the international appeal of the set. There are lots of soccer sets out there, but nothing quite like this. Most are on the low-end of the hobby as well and come with more regional distribution. 2014 Panini Prizm World Cup is global.

Another factor is the fact that many of the signers haven't had autograph cards before.

All 50 of the set's autographs come with Prizm parallels numbered to 25 and one-of-one Black Prizm parallels.

In addition to the basic autographs, 2014 Panini Prizm World Cup has some other signed cards, but they're extremely rare. There are ten Dual Autographs as well as two Fans of the Game Autographs featuring Kobe Bryant and Andrew Luck. Both are big into the sport and have been featured in Panini World Cup promo spots.

Below is a detailed look at the 2014 Panini Prizm World Cup Autographs, including a full checklist, images and teams.

  1. Had an interesting conversation with a 3M tape rep. I showed him a Panini prizm taped autograph card. His comments were that the tape will come off over time determined by environment where the card is kept, the backing drops off first with only the adhesive remaining
