Panini America Provides Detailed First Look at 2016-17 Impeccable Basketball (Preview)

August 16, 2017

Panini America 2016-17 Impeccable Basketball Main

Panini America’s upscale Impeccable Football brand made a bold debut last October and almost immediately became everybody’s frontrunner for Best New Product of Year honors. Equipped with a daring combination of precious metal cards, on-card autographs and designs that were, well, impeccable, the product was immediately embraced by collectors. Based on that overwhelmingly auspicious debut, it was really only a matter of time before the Impeccable brand crossed over — and that time is now.

In late September, Panini America officials will unveil 2016-17 Impeccable Basketball, introducing the many merits of the brand — on-card autographs, one-per-case precious metal cards, striking aesthetics — to a new audience. On average, each hobby box (eight cards per box, three boxes per case) will deliver five autographs.

The product highlights are many and include . . .

  • Each case will contain one precious metal card, holding a bar of one Troy ounce of silver (numbered to 16) or a 1/2 Troy ounce of gold (numbered to 10).
  • Every box will contain one Rookie Autograph (signed on-card) from a checklist that includes the likes of Brandon Ingram, Thon Maker, Malcolm Brogdon, Buddy Hield and more.
  • The Impeccable Stats Autographs insert featuring signed cards numbered to the featured player’s stat of significance; also find rare autographed inserts numbered to jersey numbers and number of years in the NBA.
  • Elegance Jersey Autographs showcases rookies, veterans and retired players on a uniquely designed card with both a swatch of jersey and an on-card autograph; look for Prime versions numbered to 25, 10 and one, respectively.
  • All autographs in 2016-17 Impeccable Basketball will be signed on-card.

We’ll have plenty more on 2016-17 Impeccable Basketball in the coming weeks right here on The Knight’s Lance. Until then, however, enjoy this extended sneak peek:

    One of my favorite cards in 2016 was the Raymond Berry silver metal from Impeccable, great to see an NBA version in the pipeline. Thanks Tracy!
