Now Is The Time To Invest In Panini Soccer Cards

Currently, Panini holds the rights to Premier League, Serie A, La Liga and the FIFA World Cup soccer cards. Over the next few years, Panini is expected to expand its offerings after losing their exclusive rights to both NBA and NFL sports cards.

This means that you’re not going to see any new Panini basketball cards featuring NBA players.

If you’re looking for entry-level sets to buy, you should look at the Premier League Prizm sets and the Chronicles sets. Chronicle sets will include players from La Liga and Serie A as well as players from the Premier League.

For higher end sets, look at Obsidian and Immaculate. Especially, if you can pick these up at a good price.
