Panini America 2017-18 Donruss Basketball Main

As far as flagship products go, the upcoming edition of Panini America’s Donruss Basketball has a lot going for it, not the least of which is the ballyhooed 2017 NBA Draft class that will resonate throughout 2017-18 Donruss Basketball in such cornerstone inclusions as Rated Rookies, Next Day AutographsRookie Dominators Signatures, Rookie Materials Signatures and more. But rookies alone, no matter how hot, are just one part of the Donruss equation.

2017-18 Donruss Basketball also features some of the best players in NBA history with the Dominators Signatures insert featuring autographs from the likes of Kobe Bryant, Shaquille O’Neal and Larry Bird. 2017-18 Donruss Basketball is set to arrive in hobby shops across North America on November 8 and, on average, each hobby box (10 cards per pack, 24 packs per box, 20 boxes per case) will deliver one autograph, one memorabilia card and 24 inserts.

The highlights of 2017-18 Donruss Basketball are many and include . . .

  • Elite Signatures features a checklist of 40 players with every card sequentially numbered to 40 or less. Every player also has a Gold version numbered to 10 and a Black 1/1 version.
  • When each player arrives at the NBA Rookie Photo Shoot, he has his photo taken, card files are sent to the printer, printed, returned overnight and autographed — all within 24 hours. The popular Next Day Autographs set is the result of that process.
  • The calling-card Rated Rookies represent some of the most collected Rookie Cards of the year. This year’s edition includes 50 rookies form the 2017 NBA Draft class.
  • Rookie Materials Signatures includes memorabilia swatches and autographs from the top 2017 rookies. Look for base versions numbered to 75 and Prime Memorabilia versions numbered to just 10.

We’ll have much more on 2017-18 Donruss Basketball in the coming weeks right here on The Knight’s Lance. For now, though, here’s an extended preview:
