I'll probably buy 2 or 3 because of the exclusives, but the fact that hobby is pre-selling at $10 cheaper says a lot about the overall level of interest in soccer products.

Iíll be trying to pick up 4.
Most soccer collectors donít even know about this product.
Should have been cheaper and maybe some advertising on paniniís part.
I think the majority are waiting for soccers first release of NT in June/July.

Does anybody know if the guaranteed signature auto and blue prizm is basically what every box has, or is that a minimum standard? Could you pull anything better than a blue signature, like a dual or 1/1 etc? Not too familiar with this FOTL. I might get a few boxes but this is an expensive product in my view and it will be heavily printed based on the levels of parallels on the checklist.

I believe those are On Top of normal hits. But who knows until some boxes are broken.
Yeah with the NEW 21 base parallels probably 7000 plus cases.
It will be a good break in 6 months for half the price!!

FOTL or nothing on the Prizm WC imo. I see decent value on the FOTL boxes.

Yes I agree. FOTL Guaranteed auto makes it good value, great value actually if you consider checklist for /5 which is quite strong, not many lesser names there. But overall product is ruined by million parallels IMO.

I believe it replaces the normal hits. It's "instead of" not in "addition too"

That was my reading of it, so whilst it looks decent to get a consistent level of hit, isn’t the downside you have no chance of anything better?, like some of the better signatures and parallels. Am not sure it’s quite as good a deal as we thought. Be good to get confirmation though.

All we can do is try pick up a few boxes and as itís a FOTL Soccer product hopefully they loaded up those boxes!
First time for soccer so you would think they would want it to be a success.

From everything I have read it looks like you’ll get a guaranteed blue variant auto and a blue #5 parallel. I don’t think from the citation you will get anything else in there. Am considering a few boxes out of curiosity, despite the cost. Will be good to feed back what these shake out like.

Hobby box guarantees (on avarage) 1 auto or SP insert and I would be surprised if it is different for FOTL so I think most boxes of FOTL will deliver 2 autos and blue shimmer numbered /5. But the language is kinda vague so you can never be sure.

Crazy number of parallels (and lack of Salah/Firmino cards) turned me off and I cancelled my pre-order but now I am thinking about ordering a few FOTL boxes.

You guys know how difficult it is to pass on a fresh release - Panini knows we are week and uses our weekness to their advantage

No chance there are 2 autos a box in FOTL. Not from Panini, no way.

I'm not sure. You basically get an extra hit compared to the regular version for an extra 10 bucks.

In basketball, you get an extra hit (a low numbered card) for a lower price since they're MSRP. I don't know how they would the exact opposite for soccer.

They just released a blog. It’s one blue auto and one blue parallel #5.

Still really solid value, IMO.

Doing the math I think the blue FOTL exclusive autos are numbered between 45-55 each.

Don't think so. It's an additional hit (auto/low numbered card) for an extra 10 bucks plus some international buyers might stay away because of international shipping - not to mention no chance at dual/triple/quad autos.

Then again, there are only 1500 boxes. With a 6 box max, they'll only need 250 orders.

I emailed a Panini rep today to get clarification on what's in the FOTL boxes. And he said:

"The blue shimmers (auto and parallel) are in addition to the regular content that falls. So you do still have the possibility of pulling a dual/quad auto AND receiving those Blue shimmers."

Hope that helps everyone. I think if you're ever gonna try soccer, this is the product to get.
