What’s Hot in 2014 Panini Prizm World Cup Soccer

The World Cup comes around but once every four years. 2014 Panini Prizm World Cup Soccer is a similarly rare product -- definitely not in print run but its composition. Despite being the most popular sport on the planet, soccer doesn't get a lot of high-end releases.

Prizm may not reach the same level as Topps' 2013-14 Premier Gold EPL product as far as autograph quantity goes. However, it more than makes up for it with a checklist that includes international greats like Pelé, Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo, Robin van Persie and Roberto Baggio. On top of those, there are a handful of extremely rare dual autographs that pair up the best of the best.

With autographs not a guaranteed box hit, it's a kick back to another time in the hobby. While some are rightfully hesitant given the high box price, it'll be interesting to see what the long-term response is like and if the template of inserts over guaranteed hits can be applied elsewhere.

What 2014 Panini Prizm World Cup lacks in promised autographs, it makes up for in Prizm parallels. Eight of the colorful cards are guaranteed in each box. They come with 11 different versions, all showcasing different color or pattern combinations. As one might expect, some are more common than others.

Here's a real-time list of the 2014 Panini Prizm World Cup cards currently up for auction on eBay that are drawing the most interest. It updates on its own, so check back to track prices and bid on big-name auctions and other rare cards.

  1. It is totally unfair for those who spent a lot of money to open packs ,boxes even cases to look for those autographs. If I know 1/1 autograph will be produced and no need to get them by chance, I will save the money to buy the 1/1 auto directly. I have spent more than USD $3,000.00 but still didn’t get any 1/1 auto, now, this set of 1/1 makes those world cup prizm seems more worthless.
