The Panini America Quality Control Gallery: 2015-16 Black Gold Basketball (100+ Pics)
With the 2016 NBA Draft now in our rearview, Panini America’s basketball focus has firmly redirected ahead — to this summer’s NBA D-League action, to this summer’s NBA Rookie Photo Shoot, to this summer’s National Sports Collectors Convention and to the last few heavyweight products that will conclude the 2015-16 product season with a resounding impact.
One of those products, 2015-16 Black Gold Basketball, arrives in hobby shops and on group-break sites across North America one week from today, intent on causing the same kind of frenzy Black Gold’s maiden football release created a few years ago. One look at the product below and you’ll know why.
The Black Gold brand is a different-by-design proposition that places premiums on rich, dark aesthetics, compelling, shadowbox base cards, and robust autograph and memorabilia checklists headlined by the sublime Massive Materials and Sizeable Signatures. Of course, no Black Gold release would be complete without the striking Team Emblems insert featuring heavy-metal team logos embedded behind the product’s trademark acetate stock.
On average, each two-pack box of 2015-16 Black Gold Basketball (four cards per pack) delivers two autographs and two memorabilia cards. You can check out the product in more detail by perusing the Quality Control Gallery that follows.
Enjoy the sneak peek and stay tuned to The Knight’s Lance for continued coverage.
