It seems only appropriate that one of the greatest soccer legends of all time, Brazil’s iconic Pelé, plays a pivotal role in Panini America’s live-Friday 2017 Nobility Soccer, the company’s first soccer product dedicated almost entirely to the beautiful game’s retired greats. Perhaps none are greater, though, than Pelé, who is the subject of a special 10-card insert set featuring pieces of Pelé’s match-worn Santos jersey. The final five cards in the set will be autographed by the legend.
As you’ll see in the revealing Quality Control Gallery that follows, the Pelé cards are simply sublime. And although many of 2017 Nobility Soccer’s calling cards have “Pelé” all over them, there’s so much more to the product for longtime soccer aficionados to cherish. Set to arrive in hobby shops across North America on Friday, 2017 Nobility Soccer will deliver, on average, two autographs (at least one will be on-card), four base-set SPs, four inserts and four parallels in every hobby box (20 cards per pack, two packs per box, eight boxes per case).
