Panini America Provides Detailed First Look at 2016-17 Prizm Basketball (Gallery)

September 6, 2016


It’s hard to believe that almost five years have passed since Panini America first introduced the basketball collecting universe to the brilliance of Prizm Basketball. The brand first enthralled collectors with a rainbow array of Optichrome opportunities during the 2012-13 season. In the years since, it’s become one of the most popular annual releases in the Panini America NBA portfolio.

In early November, Panini America will pay tribute to the brand’s brief but vibrant history by injecting 2016-17 Prizm Basketball with a special fifth-anniversary insert and the usual arsenal of visually arresting parallels. Get all of the pertinent information on this year’s release after the jump.

Each hobby box of 2016-17 Prizm Basketball (12 cards per pack, 12 packs per box) will deliver two autographs and 22 Prizm parallels. The highlights of the product are many and include . . .

  • In celebration of the aforementioned fifth anniversary, look for the special Fifth Anniversary parallel chase limited to just five copies each.
  • Chase your player’s rainbow with colorful Prizm parallels ranging from unnumbered versions all the way down to 1/1s.
  • Look for Veteran Signatures and Autographs featuring a wide array of star players from veteran superstars such as Kevin Durant and key rookies such as Brandon Ingram.
  • 2016-17 Prizm Basketball is reloaded with fun inserts highlighting fan-favorite, in-game moments such as First Step, All Day, Sky’s the Limit and Go Hard or Go Home.
  • Explosions, Prizm Basketball’s most colorful insert is reserved for the most dominant and colorful personalities of the game.

We’ll have much more on 2016-17 Prizm Basketball in the coming weeks right here on The Knight’s Lance. Until then, check out this extended sneak peek:

    Please don’t put patch cards or horizontal autos in this. Keep this product consistent with what it is.

    Use the horizontals and patches in other products.

    Sidways autos and memorabilia? Prizm has a standard, let’s stick to it–you’re taking a step backwards with this one and moving it towards every other Panini product.

    You should have kept the design the same as last year. You are losing what’s unique about PRIZM, which is a simple and clean chrome look.

    Agree with everyone else, wish they didn’t do the horizontal and patches in this. Sleek and simple chrome designs with just the typical autos is way to go.

    Looks as good as always, and if we get a checklist the same size or bigger than last year’s it’ll be all the better. I’ve never done a box of Prizm, at least in the NBA, but maybe I will have to this year to celebrate the 5th anniversary of not only the set but of my return to the NBA – I’m still kicking myself for leaving the sport from 2006-12. I now consider it one if the biggest mistakes of my life…but coming back one of the best decisions. I digress (LOL)
