The Imminence of Eminence: Gallery Offers Final Pre-Release Look at Kobe Eminence

January 11, 2018

Panini America Kobe Eminence Peek B58

Tomorrow, Panini America and Kobe Bryant will make trading card history with the official release of Kobe Eminence, an unprecedented collecting experience that delivers a stunning tribute to the celebrated career of the Los Angeles Lakers icon and NBA legend. The cards produced for the Kobe Eminence collection — whether they’re autographed or gilded or fitted with diamonds, gold, platinum or game-worn memorabilia — are quite exceptional. So, too, are the experiences, including, for example, the opportunity to actually meet Bryant or attend the 2019 NBA All-Star Game or 2018 NBA Rookie Photo Shoot.

For the better part of the last month, the sports collectibles industry has been buzzing about Kobe Eminence, from the initial product announcement to watching Kobe discuss the product to the first wave of card images. But now, with the product set to arrive in mere hours, we’re bringing you one more pre-release look at the product, this time exploring some of the set’s diamond-encrusted cards, game-worn memorabilia cards, additional autographed stunners and randomly inserted Instant Win cards.

The product has been in the works for months with extensive personal input from the Black Mamba himself. Each nine-card Kobe Eminence box includes eight Bryant-autographed cards and one card featuring an ounce of gold or platinum. Each box also includes a hardcover, Kobe-signed coffee table book featuring images of every card in the set.

Enjoy the imagery that follows and stay tuned tomorrow for a must-see video that takes you behind the scenes as one of the boxes was packed out.

    it says 8 auto 1 card with gem or does that mean the patch only cards are extra hit?

    These are some of the most amazing cards I’ve ever seen. They are amazing! My birthday is January 14th. So if you want to send a box over as a birthday gift, I would greatly appreciate it!
