The Panini America Quality Control Gallery: 2015-16 Spectra Basketball (66 Sweet Pics)
No matter how many products release in a given trading card season across all sports, the one thing collectors can rely on is the fact that Panini America’s Spectra franchise will deliver more than its fair share of visually arresting hits. But since its inaugural release late in the 2013-14 NBA season, Spectra Basketball always has been more than just crafty execution of Optichrome technology and flashy colors.
It’s about a deep and talented roster of autograph and memorabilia content. It’s about chase-inducing parallels and to-die-for die-cuts. It’s about honoring the game’s hottest rookies, greatest current stars and most coveted legends with cutting-edge production qualities and big-pull potential. That’s certainly the recipe for 2015-16 Spectra Basketball, which arrives in hobby shops across North America next Wednesday to tipoff the month of June on a high note.
The Panini America Basketball Product Development Team spent some quality time earlier this week quality controlling this year’s stunning iteration during the packout process. The Quality Control Gallery that follows below showcases some of the stunners that surfaced as a result.
Each 10-card box of 2015-16 Spectra Basketball delivers seven autograph or memorabilia cards, on average. You can eye many of the possibilities in the must-see gallery that follows. Enjoy the sneak peek and stay tuned to The Knight’s Lance for continued coverage.
