It’s no real secret that there’s a stigma that sticks to sticker autographs. Give any trading card collector the choice between an on-card autograph or one with an autograph sticker and on-card wins every . . . single . . . time. But sometimes, when conditions are just right, a “sticker” autograph can be just about the best card you can pull from a product. In Panini America’s 2018 Treble Soccer, the conditions were right. The product released in early December with a litany of promising aspects, but it didn’t take long for soccer fans and collectors to pinpoint their favorite one: The spectacular World Cup Sticker Autographs insert featuring original FIFA World Cup™ Stickers embedded into the card.

While many of the cards in the insert feature sticker autographs, the ones that have commanded the most attention and secondary-market action are the ones featuring autographs directly on the embedded FIFA World Cup™ Sticker. You know, the ones from pitch heavyweights such as Cristiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi, Neymar Jr. and Javier Hernandez.
