Art Appreciation: Panini America Teases the Colorful 2017-18 Court Kings Basketball

October 12, 2017

Panini America 2017-18 Court Kings Basketball Markelle Fultz

You could place every NBA product in Panini America’s sizable portfolio, place them side by side and, chances are, the one that would be the easiest to identify is Court Kings Basketball. The colorful, captivating, art-inspired beauty stands out that much. It’s a perennial collector favorite that provides a colorful punch to the early season NBA lineup every year. That’s certainly the plan once again when 2017-18 Court Kings Basketball arrives in early December to offer a fresh take on one of the hottest rookie classes in years.

Set to arrive in hobby shops across North America on December 6, each hobby box of 2017-18 Court Kings Basketball (10 cards per box, 16 boxes per case) will deliver one autograph, one memorabilia card and two Rookie Cards. Once again this season, Court Kings Basketball will provide a slew of vivid, bright designs that enhance the aesthetic of the game and four distinct Rookie Card variations with unique designs and varying print runs.

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

  • The most artistic cards in the hobby, tons of rookie content, striking designs and stacked autograph and memorabilia checklists.
  • Random Hot Boxes that deliver additional autograph and memorabilia content.
  • On-card rookie autographs in the Fresh Paint and Heir Apparent inserts and dual-signed autographs in the Fresh Paint Duals chase.
  • One of the most popular aspects of Court Kings Basketball every year, oversized 5-by-7 Box-Toppers return, with rare on-card autographed versions form the likes of Kyrie Irving, Kevin Durant, Damian Lillard, Kobe Bryant and Karl-Anthony Towns.
  • One insert per box, including the one-per-case Aurora and the all-new Points in the Paint, Emerging Artists, Dieci Migliore and Blank Slate.
  • The return of the Art Nouveau memorabilia insert featuring jumbo swatches that include an SSP nameplate version.

We’ll have more on 2017-18 Court Kings Basketball in the coming weeks right here on The Knight’s Lance. Until then, though, here’s an extended sneak peek:

    Big fan of the artistic touch brought to the Kings program in any sport, that letter patch is sweet. Thanks Tracy!

    You know, Tracy, that the correct translation from Top 10 is “Migliori Dieci”, not “Dieci Migliore” ? I hope you’re in time to adjust it. Sincerely, Vincenzo
