We will have a new collection coming out in March.

TC Champions Power AXL.

Panini are really going for it this season. Update of AXL 365 is out in April. When will it end?

The card market is really booming but will it eventually implode and people stop buying because there is so many products out there? What are your thoughts fellas!!!

Too much of the same, some collections are only for really hardcore collectors who want to collect all!
But why not a Women's Euro 2022 AXL?

Unless there's some amazing deal, it's another to pass... and I was always an Adrenalyn fan.

Let's hope that puke green is not the highlight again :rolleyes:

Some bundles available online. Nice cards.
25 ultimate cards available, numbered 1-99. Each bundle comes with 3 random ultimates. Only got boxes so far, no binder, checklist or limiteds. Some nice Hero cards featuring Legends and Rookies. 9 Rare cards, 8 Signature and 1 invincible. Line ups also in this set.

Collection can now be pre-ordered in Germany in the Paninishop.

Interesting that Panini is now also introducing these numbered cards. However, for the time being only as a bonus for orders and not yet within the packs.


Checklist can be found here (Limited editions have yet to be added).

Disregarding the fact that I don't like the "elitetist" of the collection, I must say that in terms of graphic (and it seems even the material) I really liked the fresh look. In same way in the cards I enjoyed the green. You can judge me haahah xD

FIrst 365 had much more specials than TM cards... Euro 2016 too... probably a couple more I can't remember now.
Looks like you two skipped a few FIFA 365 collections ;) 2019, 2021 & 2022 had also more special cards than base cards.

Damn, that shit is hot.
I love these legend cards. The van der Sar Card was the first one I got.. a stunner(!)
The rare signature cards are fresh too.
The base cards are ok. I appreciate the different jerseys represented, makes it more interesting.
The 3-pieces 1st eleven squad cards are a great invention copied from the sticker edition.

I know there is criticism about the intention of the collection itself.
Somehow it is an elite version of Fifa 365 and the necessity is at least debatable.

Apart from that it is a collection I am really having fun to collect.
After opening five 24 pack displays I can confirm there are always exactly two rare cards inside.

I still don’t know what to think about the 25 different platinum cards limited to 99 pieces each. Available as free give away only by purchasing 3 displays by panini directly.
Ebay is full of offers now - the usual suspect players with very high buy it now offers..

I forgot to mention that for me the cards collection is better than the sticker album.
The neon green is represented only in an acceptable amount ;-)

I can wholeheartedly agree with Helios. I really like the cards and Panini put a lot of effort into the design (even if that's always a matter of taste, of course). In addition, with 6 cards for 1 € it has a top price-performance ratio, since each pack also contains at least 2 or often even 3 special cards. Something that you have looked for in vain in the almost twice as expensive Road to Qatar collection. It's definitely fun to collect the cards!

The only thing I personally don't like is the sorting in the binder, where Panini sometimes uses sorting by position and which just doesn't make sense to me (except that you don't have to consider the same number of cards for each team) .

Certainly one can critically question the meaning of the collection, in addition to the FIFA 365. Especially since FIFA 365 is also getting an update collection and Panini will probably completely forgo the FIFA 365 release in Germany (and other countries) this season. Top class would not have been necessary if Panini had placed its full trust in FIFA 365, which they apparently no longer have (or there are other reasons that we do not know). The fantastic design could easily have been saved for the FIFA 365 2023 collection or rather used for the Road to Qatar cards, which were rather a disappointment in that respect.

The Platinum Cards were just a fitting one-level upgrade for those who don't know where to put their money and who sense big business. Normally they wouldn't have bought Adrenalyn XL Cards, but Panini was able to cheer them on 3 boxes, which was a great deal for Panini. All normal Adrenalyn XL collectors who collect traditionally and just want to complete their collection should simply ignore them.

I find it rather regrettable that the Limited Edition Cards have been completely banned from the products (such as multipacks and blister packs) and that they are only available for orders in the online shop. Thus, these products have been completely devalued and actually no longer need to be offered.

Fantastic feedback @Helios & @Ole

I think the 3 part card for the 1st Eleven been done before in Road to Euro 2016. Not a bad idea, I like it.
Having at least 2 Rare cards in a 24 packets box is not new to Panini. FIFA365 had at least 2 rare in them as well.

I like the look of the cards judging from the many vids from German & Polish collectors. The Legends & Rookies(as much as I hate using this word for Footy cards) are well designed.
Base cards however seem to be a bit off with only quarter of the card is a player picture and the rest his name then his attributes. Same goes for the ones that have the Gold foil in the middle. I don't understand the decision!
We all want a bigger picture of the players esp our favourite ones not smaller.

Agree with the set up for the checklist. I don't like the first section # by player position instead of full team pages. Although I noticed the 2nd section of the checklist does have 9 cards per team that are in numerical order.

There are limited editions in the Polish market multi packs. In fact 2 randomly inserted LEs packed in plastic bag which is glued to the carton.
Panini has listened to us and not left the LE glued directly into the carton which most of the time damaged the card from behind or it got bent.

It may not seem like it, but the image actually takes up half of the trading card. I think it was implemented well, however, because the nature of the action pictures means that the players are almost completely depicted. More surface area for the image would only have meant more of the background showing, or less of the player's body if it had been enlarged due to more surface area available

Exactly. In the second part, all teams have a page with 9 cards. This part is designed as expected and known from the past. Unfortunately only this part.

Yes, in Poland, fortunately for the collectors there, the limited editions have not yet been banned from the products. Wish it was similar in Germany, but here you can only get them in Panini's online shop if you buy for a certain volume.

Ok I see. Makes sense.

I was looking at the Shop and noticed all the bundles with the LE cards numbered /99 and regular but I didn't see De Ligt, Malen, Mahrez & Handanovic(all came out of Polish Multi packs) unless I went Stevie Wonder :D
Looks like the Polish market has more/different LE releases then you guys in Germany.
