Default Panini offers exclusive World Cup Prizm parallels through eBay

‘El Samba’ World Cup Prizm 1/1s Launching on Panini America’s New eBay Platform
Jun 12th 2014, 17:03, by Tracy Hackler


To coincide with today’s opening of the 2014 FIFA World Cup, Panini America has created a one-of-a-kind “El Samba” parallel version of its internationally popular 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil Prizm trading card set that will be available exclusively on the company’s new eBay platform beginning today. Inspired by the yellow-and-green colorway of the host country, the “El Samba” 1/1 parallels feature both a color scheme and printing pattern that were not utilized in the original Prizm product.
Panini America will launch 10 new three-day auctions each day throughout the World Cup, beginning with today’s first lot, which includes stars from Brazil, Croatia, Chile and Australia. As the World Cup progresses, Panini America will also add 1/1 “El Samba” parallel autographs to the auction roster.

Stay tuned to The Knight’s Lance for additional details on the exclusive “El Samba” auction. For now, here’s the tentative auction schedule for the first week:
June 12, 2014 104 Julio Cesar Brazil Goalkeeper 105 Dani Alves Brazil Defender 116 Stipe Pletikosa Croatia Goalkeeper 117 Darijo Srna Croatia Defender 106 David Luiz Brazil Defender 118 Luka Modric Croatia Midfielder 41 Claudio Bravo Chile Goalkeeper 42 Mauricio Isla Chile Defender 14 Mathew Ryan Australia Goalkeeper 15 Lucas Neill Australia Defender June 13, 2014 36 Charles Itandje Cameroon Goalkeeper 37 Nicolas Nkoulou Cameroon Defender 143 Guillermo Ochoa Mexico Goalkeeper 144 Miguel Layun Mexico Midfielder 145 Rafael Marquez Mexico Defender 173 Xabi Alonso Spain Midfielder 174 Sergio Busquets Spain Midfielder 175 David Silva Spain Midfielder 27 Jasper Cillessen Netherlands Goalkeeper 28 Bruno Martins Indi Netherlands Defender June 14, 2014 47 David Ospina Colombia Goalkeeper 48 Cristian Zapata Colombia Defender 99 Orestis Karnezis Greece Goalkeeper 100 Sokratis Papastathopoulos Greece Defender 189 Fernando Muslera Uruguay Goalkeeper 56 Bryan Ruiz Costa Rica Forward 124 Leonardo Bonucci Italy Defender 125 Giorgio Chiellini Italy Defender 134 Joe Hart England Goalkeeper 135 Ashley Cole England Defender June 15, 2014 57 Boubacar Barry Ivory Coast Goalkeeper 58 Didier Zokora Ivory Coast Midfielder 195 Atsuto Uchida Japan Defender 196 Yuto Nagatomo Japan Defender 181 Diego Benaglio Switzerland Goalkeeper 182 Stephan Lichtsteiner Switzerland Defender 63 Alexander Dominguez Ecuador Goalkeeper 64 Antonio Valencia Ecuador Midfielder 76 Eric Abidal France Defender 114 Maynor Figueroa Honduras Defender June 16, 2014 83 Manuel Neuer Germany Goalkeeper 157 Fabio Coentrao Portugal Defender 121 Rahman Ahmadi Iran Goalkeeper 122 Javad Nekounam Iran Midfielder 151 Victor Moses Nigeria Midfielder 96 Sulley Muntari Ghana Midfielder 97 Kevin-Prince Boateng Ghana Forward 70 Landon Donovan United States Forward 71 Jozy Altidore United States Forward 150 Vincent Enyeama Nigeria Goalkeeper June 17, 2014 19 Vincent Kompany Belgium Defender 20 Axel Witsel Belgium Midfielder 1 Rais M’Bolhi Algeria Goalkeeper 2 Madjid Bougherra Algeria Defender 147 Giovani Dos Santos Mexico Forward 148 Javier Hernandez Mexico Forward 111 Hulk Brazil Forward 110 Paulinho Brazil Midfielder 163 Dmitri Kombarov Russia Defender 73 Lee Chung-Yong Korea Republic Midfielder June 18, 2014 29 Arjen Robben Netherlands Midfielder 30 Kevin Strootman Netherlands Midfielder 16 Luke Wilkshire Australia Midfielder 17 Tim Cahill Australia Midfielder 43 Arturo Vidal Chile Midfielder 44 David Pizarro Chile Midfielder 176 Cesc Fabregas Spain Midfielder 177 Andres Iniesta Spain Midfielder 40 Samuel Eto’o Cameroon Forward 119 Eduardo Croatia Forward

so in the same week we find out they were holding back hits, which are now showing up on their new rewards website, we also find out they are making exclusive hits to auction on ebay?

seriously, who is in charge over at Panini... Bernie Madoff?

I would not call blank backs the same thing as an all new parallel level, blank backs are essentially just a printing test proof that they only print one side and they sell for next to nothing.

The prizm pylons from 2012 football sold for hundreds each, Panini is taking things to all new loss this week

Unfortunately there's only one way these practices can be contained and that's for no one to buy their products or bid on these auctions which will never happen. Will only get worse from here.

Not sure why everyone is getting their panties in a bunch. Don't want it? Don't buy it. Don't like it? Don't buy it.

some people (not panini fanboys apparently) tend to frown upon unethical practices like this.

and i don't like it, don't want it and won't buy it.
