Breaking more into the high-end realm during the 2017-18 season for club and country, the global game is on full display in 2017 Panini Immaculate Collection Soccer. With quality designs and the first on-card autographs for many top-tier players, the Immaculate debut for the sport is packed with talent and very nice relics.
Although not quite on the level of the Flawless brand, Immaculate Collection is still among the most premium offerings in Panini's portfolio. In this case, the five hits per box are broken down into two autographs, two relics and one additional hit. There is also one base card to round out the six-card boxes.
2017 Panini Immaculate Collection Soccer Base
Speaking of the base set, the 2017 Panini Immaculate Collection Soccer checklist gets started with 100 cards that are each numbered to 99. In addition to the true base cards, a quartet of limited parallels enhance the choices, including Sapphire (#/35), Bronze (#/25), Gold (#/10) and Platinum (1/1).
2017 Panini Immaculate Collection Soccer Autographs
Boasting 12 hard-signed sets, 2017 Panini Immaculate Collection Soccer has no shortage of impressive autographs, which fall at least two per box. Among the auto relics, the Patch Autograph and Premium Patch Autograph lines include the first on-card autographed patches for Theo Walcott and Christian Pulisic, among others. Also adding in a relic piece, Team Tag Autograph offers specific jersey swatches for the squad noted on the card, while Boot Signatures naturally contains shoe pieces.
Also signed on-card, themed inserts include All-Time Greats, Celebration Signatures, Historical Significance, Immaculate Moments and Shadowbox Signatures. Wayne Rooney and Ryan Giggs are some of the hard-signed debuts here.
2017 Panini Immaculate Collection Soccer Relics
Promising memorabilia options only found in the brand, the relic cards combine to average 2-3 per box. With more than 15 sets available, 2017 Panini Immaculate Collection Soccer features Nameplate Nobility and Team Crests with jumbo patches, while Boot Memorabilia focuses on the cleats.
