Product Rewind: 2020-21 Panini Mosaic UEFA Euro Soccer Cards – The immense growth in popularity of soccer, here in the United States, has proven to be a key driver for Panini America’s product development team. Corresponding to the increased popularity of the sport itself is the increased demand for sports collectibles in the category, including trading cards.
The UEFA Champions League is widely regarded as being among the most elite in the world. When you combine the world’s greatest footballers on a checklist featured in one of the hobby’s most dynamic brands, it is a surefire formula for a winning product. The abundance of soccer products, released by multiple manufacturers, in 2020-21, may have caused this one to fly under the radar. Here’s a closer look at 2020-21 Panini Mosaic UEFA Euro Soccer Cards.
Product Rewind: 2020-21 Panini Mosaic UEFA Euro Soccer Cards – Pack-out
Mosaic UEFA Euro was distributed in three configurations; a standard Hobby version as well as a Hobby Hybrid and Choice versions. Currently, hobby boxes deliver a better value and will be the focus of this product rewind. Every hobby box will yield (1) Autographed Card, (5) Silver Prizm Parallels, (15) Mosaic Prizm Parallels and (20) Inserts.
The single autograph card in the box, at the initial price point, may have kept collectors at bay. However, at current prices and the prospect of hitting an autograph of a marquee player, NOW is definitely the time to try or retry a box. Additionally, there is still plenty of value in the parallels and inserts to justify the current price of $105-$120.
For group case breakers, the pack-out configuration of 12 boxes per case and the single auto makes for a, relatively quick break with plenty of profit potential.
- Configuration: 12 boxes/10 packs/15 cards
