As NBA Finals Arrive, Panini America Offers Arresting Review of Spectra Basketball

June 04, 2015

Panini America 2014-15 Spectra Basketball NBA Finals Review (30)

Call it a hobby-wide case of “Spectracide.” With its drop-dead gorgeous good looks, a wealth of desirable memorabilia and autograph cards, and the eternal excellence of Optichrome technology, Panini America’s¬†scorching 2014-15 Spectra Basketball is “killing it” in hobby shops across North America. For good reason, the product remains atop collecting’s Most Wanted list eight days after release.

The second installment of the Spectra Basketball brand, much like last year’s premiere, is filled with a colorful ensemble of criminally cool cards that seem to command attention. And the more you see, the more you want to see. So as you prepare for tonight’s Game 1 of the 2015 NBA Finals, we thought we’d start getting into game mode with another riveting investigation into some of the set’s must-see memorabilia cards.

In the admittedly gratuitous gallery that follows, we showcase the Gold and Green glory of 2014-15 Spectra Basketball’s Millenial Memorabilia, Double Team Jerseys and Triple-Double Threads inserts. In honor of tonight’s 2015 NBA Finals opener, we’ve front-loaded the lineup with key cards from members of the Golden State Warriors and Cleveland Cavaliers.

Enjoy the gallery. Enjoy the game. And stay tuned to the Panini America Twitter account for complete details of tonight’s #PaniniWildCard contest.
