Touch of Glass: Panini America Sneaks Peek at 2015-16 Absolute Basketball Glass Inserts
Panini America’s 2015-16 Absolute Basketball — which officially sold out yesterday — released earlier this month and resonated almost immediately with longtime Absolute fans thanks to a compelling mix of rich memorabilia content, key autographs and an air of mystique surrounding the one-per-case Glass redemption cards that fall roughly once per case. Today, we’re ready to eliminate the mystery by showcasing every laser-etched-crystal card in the 20-card Glass set.
The cards began shipping to collectors earlier this week and should start hitting waiting mailboxes in the coming days. Boasting a checklist featuring the greatest current stars and all-time legends, the Glass insert definitely makes an impression — as much for its see-through aesthetics as for its substantial feel in the palm of your hand.
Check them out in the gallery that follows and stay tuned to The Knight’s Lance for continued coverage.
