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

April 29, 2017

Panini America 2016-17 Spectra Basketball Main

Over the course of its first few years in existence, Panini America’s flashy Spectra Basketball franchise has often blown fans and collectors away with a litany of colorful calling cards and deft utilization of the company’s still-captivating Optichrome printing technology. It’s been a winning recipe rife with big hits for the last three years . . . and it’s a recipe worth repeating (but with a few new twists).

Set to arrive in mid June, 2016-17 Spectra Basketball will deliver, on average, seven autograph or memorabilia cards in every 10-card box (six boxes per case). Every autographed card in the product features a piece of memorabilia and a chase-worthy ensemble of parallels, including the all-new Nebula 1/1 version.

The highlights of 2016-17 Spectra Basketball are many and include . . .

  • Global Icons Memorabilia Autographs showcasing 15 of the most popular NBA players from around the world.
  • Calling-card Rookie Jersey Autograph gems honoring members of the 2016-17 NBA Rookie Class and featuring on-card autographs, base versions numbered to 300 or less and parallels numbered to as low as one.
  • A wide variety of specifically themed autograph sets with multiple parallel versions, jumbo-prime memorabilia versions and a spectacular mix of current, retired and rookie NBA players.

We’ll have plenty more on 2016-17 Spectra Basketball in the coming weeks right here on The Knight’s Lance. But for now, enjoy this extended first look:

    NICE!!!!! I can’t wait for this to come out. My local shop should out of football the day it came out. I already told him to save me a box of basketball.

    These are great cards. Wish I could afford them. Glad to see Isaiah Thomas get the cover spot. He’s had a great season on the court and the green theme works particularly well with the Celtics.

    Spectra is a fine program across all sports, looks like this edition will carry on that mantle nicely. Thanks Tracy!
