Panini America Offers Detailed First Look at 2016-17 Preferred Basketball (Preview)

June 28, 2017

Panini America 2016-17 Preferred Basketball Main

It’s not like Panini America’s upcoming 2016-17 Preferred Basketball product needs a massive development — like Indiana Pacers legend Reggie Miller returning his autographs to NBA trading cards for the first time in a decade — to generate huge demand. As it has been since the Preferred product first debuted in 2011, collector interest in the product is strong to quite strong thanks to a virtually unrivaled mix of unique content that includes the industry’s most creative booklets, to-die-for die-cuts and loaded autograph and memorabilia content.

Of course, adding an elusive Hall of Famer like Miller to the mix only sweetens the Preferred proposition. Set to arrive in late August, each four-card box of the all-thriller, no-filler 2016-17 Preferred Basketball will deliver two autographs and two memorabilia cards.

The highlights of the product are many and include . . .

  • On-card autographs of NBA rookies, veterans and legends.
  • Preferred Silhouettes have become one of the premiere autograph/memorabilia combo cards in the hobby. They return better than ever, bolstered immensely by the addition of Miller.
  • Collect timeless designs in the Panini’s Choice and Crown Royale autograph sets — all of which will be signed on-card.
  • Find Trending Upward, Crazy Eights, Stat Line and the spectacular, one-of-a-kind NBA Finals 2016 booklets featuring jersey swatches and patches worn during the NBA Finals 2016.
  • The Vs. 1 ON 1 booklets offer a unique look at in-game action featuring some of the NBAs most electric matchups and game-worn memorabilia.
  • Collect the top rookies from the 2016-17 class on one of the most eye-catching booklet designs of the year: Rookie Playbooks Prime.
  • Preferred Basketball features unique designs, on-card autographs and some of the most sought-after jumbo prime memorabilia cards in the hobby with Silhouettes, Rookie Silhouettes and Prime versions of each.

We’ll have plenty more on 2016-17 Preferred Basketball in the coming weeks right here on The Knight’s Lance. But until then, enjoy this extended sneak peek that includes some of the early on-card returns from the aforementioned Miller.

    The jumbo relic autos and amazing booklets are highlights for sure, any chance baseball gets the preferential treatment in the future? Thanks Tracy!
