We recently bought a box of 2020/21 Panini Chronicles Soccer trading cards from our local card store. For $470, you get three boxes of cards — featuring the Premier League, Serie A and LaLiga.

Fifteen cards are in each box. What’s unique is that the cards are from a range of popular Panini card brands including Prizm, Contenders and Donruss. So, not only do you get a variety of cards, but you also get — on average — three autograph cards or memorabilia cards per box. Memorabilia cards often contain pieces of game-worn or player-worn shirts that are encased inside the actual trading card itself.

With Panini Chronicles Soccer focusing on three of the most popular leagues in the world, it means you’ve got a wide variety of players featured including the three most popular players on the planet right now — Messi, Ronaldo and Neymar. But outside of the galacticos, there’s a wealth of young up-and-coming talent (including rookie cards) for the stars of the future.

If you’re only interested in one or more of the three leagues featured, you can buy the individual boxes on eBay as well as your local card store.

So, how did we do when we bought our box of Panini Chronicles Soccer? Watch the video below to see what the collection looks like and the one special trading card that we pulled, in particular.
