Panini America Delivers a Gallery Update on International-Only 2014-15 Gala Basketball
A lot has happened in the three weeks since Panini America first announced plans for the international-only 2014-15 Gala Basketball release. The initial news created a still-reverberating buzz throughout the basketball collecting community — as much for Gala’s unique designs and rich product content as for its outside-the-U.S. distribution plan. Today, that buzz promises to gain even more intensity as we showcase some of the newest on-card autographs that have arrived for Gala in recent days.
We showed you the first wave of returns with that original announcement and a few more earlier this week. Today, we have so much more to show from the limited release that will feature perhaps the rarest Rookie Cards ever produced (each RC is limited to just eight numbered copies). Among Gala’s most impressive new autograph returns showcased below are cards signed by huge current stars (Kyrie Irving, Blake Griffin, Deron Williams), key rookies (Jabari Parker, Zach LaVine, Nikola Mirotic) and all-time greats (Jason Kidd, Dikembe Mutombo, George Karl).
Enjoy the revealing sneak peek and stay tuned to The Knight’s Lance for continued coverage of 2014-15 Gala Basketball, slated to release July 29. Next week, we’ll have your first look at the aforementioned Rookie Cards and some of the set’s base cards. Oh, but before you get to today’s eye candy, here’s an Instagram glimpse from a Panini America signing that took place Tuesday:
