  1. To be honest - it's look like a very poor collection. For me there is no different between limited and other cards. And also design is horrible.

    I think this collection isn't worth any money, even if it will be able to buy on sale.

    1. totally agree. those who are collecting this (myself included) are doing it for the fact that we have the others, and we are used to make them all which has became uncecesary and extremely expensive..

  2. it is impossible for Hungary, Switzerland and Portugal to be in the collection. So this must be an error from Panini or they are not doing realistic predictions for who will be in the World Cup 2018.

  3. I'm really surprised Finland are in the collection: they are 9 points of the play-off places and level on points with Kosovo (1 point in total). It is extremely unlikely they will qualify.

  4. Its the same for France, Netherlands and Sweden:they cant all qualify.

    1. I think the choice of countries has more to do with where Panini intend to sell the collection rather than whether the teams will actually reach the World Cup tournament in Russia next year.


    2. No wonder Hungary are in it then. But I find that quite annoying. Thank you anyway.

  5. Messi limited edition:

  6. Also some other cards here:


  8. Hi Alan,

    News from Hungary:

    Nagy Ádám in min tin
    Gera mini & in big tin
    Kleinheisler in big tin
    Dzsudzsák in megastarter
    Szalai in smaller starter


    1. Thank you mszaby, I've added this information to the checklist.


  9. Christian Eriksen instead if Erikssen.

  10. I'm in London for few days. Can anyone tell in what stores I can find cards from this collection?

    1. Hi,

      You should be able to get them in stores like Toys'R'Us, newsagents like W.H. Smith and supermarkets like Tesco and Sainsbury.


  11. OK. Will try on Tuesday. So far I found only starterpacks in Tesco and in Morrison store. Thanks for the tip.

  12. It's only Businness Poland,Hungary,Turkey are big markets for Panini,Panini is Italy based, but this collection will be not available in Italy and unfortunately many Limited Edition as XXL are only available in Turkey and prices skyrocked...

  13. Hi Alan,

    Just to let you know I got a Messi LE in a Polish pocket tin.

  14. HI, is there any photos to show the difference from Premium Gold Online Card 5 coins and 20 coins? Thank you

    1. Hi,

      I haven't been able to get any good photos yet but the reverse of the cards have 5 and 20 gold discs printed on them respectively. There may also be cards with other quantities of gold coins too, but these are the only two I know of so far.


  15. Hey,

    Does anybody know where I can find these guys?
    547. Robin Lod (Finland)
    548. Përparim Hetemaj (Finland)
    549. Alexander Ring (Finland)
    550. Thomas Lam (Finland)
    552. Eero Markkanen (Finland)
    553. Teemu Pukki (Finland)

    Thanks, Zsolt

  16. Hello Alan, I opened a Polish pocket tin and got Aguero limited edition card. Regards.

  17. Hi Alan,
    In a Polish classic tin I opened today my 3 LEs were Bale, Muller & Robben. I hope this helps your post. Will update you with a 2nd classic tin once it's opened. Thank you.

  18. Blerim Dzemaili is found in the PREMIIUM GOLD Special Edition in Switzerland together with Robert Lewandowski and one of the two Online Coins-Cards. Fabian Schär, Kaspar Dolberg and Alexis Sanchez in Premium Boosters in Switzerland.

    1. Thank you very much for your help. I will add this information to the checklist.


    2. Tin in Switzerland contains Yann Sommer, Eden Hazard, Lionel Messi.

    3. Thank you for letting me know, I've added this information to the checklist.



  19. Mario Gotze & Anders Iniesta are both found in Polish Premium Gold packs.

  20. Hi Alan.
    It is rather James Rodrigues existing in Finnish packs than Ricardo. We are not THAT lucky over here... :)

    1. Hi Jari,

      Thanks for letting me know my mistake, I've updated the list.


  21. Hello,

    I have a question about the Premium Gold Online Cards. On they listed 2 different cards. One with the value of 5 coins and one with the value of 50 coins. Is this correct? I think 50 must be 20 or not? Or maybe in The UK there are also cards with 50? Do you know anything about this?


    1. Hi Twan,

      I think that may be a mistake on I only know of the 5 and 20 coin versions.

      Take care,


  22. Hi Alan.
    Buffon LE is available in Polish Just Kick it Magazine 6/17.,p1044815937,prasa-p


    1. Thank you Jari, I'll add that information to the checklist.
