Panini America Offers Detailed First Look at 2016-17 Court Kings Basketball (Gallery)

September 25, 2016


The popular collecting work of art that is Panini America’s Court Kings Basketball franchise is on the verge of putting on another excellent exhibit. Due out in late November, 2016-17 Court Kings Basketball will once again portray the NBA’s biggest superstars, hottest rookies and greatest legends with the unique painting effects that have come to impress even the most intense critics.

On average, each hobby box of 2016-17 Court Kings Basketball (10 cards per pack, one pack per box, 16 boxes per case) will deliver one oversized box-topper, one autograph, one memorabilia card, one portrait, two Rookie Cards, one insert and four base cards. Once again this season, Court Kings will also deliver a bevy of hard-signed rookie autograph content.

The highlights of this artistic masterpiece are many and include . . .

  • Autographs from the newest NBA rookies in Fresh Paint and Heir Apparent. For the first time, look for the short-print Fresh Print color variation.
  • Court Kings brings you closer to the game with the Performance Art Jerseys insert. Each of these cards feature swatches, statistics and photography from the actual game the player wore the jersey.
  • Find beautiful inserts celebrating the best and brightest of the game in every box of Court Kings. Look for the rare Aurora and Le Cinque Piu Belle inserts.
  • Every box of Court Kings comes with an oversized Box Topper. Find three unique box toppers in this year’s Court Kings: Rookie Royalty (a star-studded set that hearkens back to players who excelled in their rookie year), Panoramics (a supersized display of beautiful wide-angle photography) and Autographs (an on-card autographed insert set that features more than 20 legends of the NBA).
  • Court Kings is loaded to the brim with rookie content, with 25 of the top newcomers featured in four unique Rookie Card versions.

We’ll have much more to preview on 2016-17 Court Kings Basketball in the coming weeks here onThe Knight’s Lance. But for now, enjoy this extended sneak peek:

    Love the arc_eologist insert. Had my health cooperated being an archaeologist was what I wanted to do with my life. The concept of talking about which game the jersey was worn in is a great one as well.

    The artistic touch and on card auto content makes this rendition of Court Kings stand out from other NBA releases, thanks Tracy!
