Panini America 2017-18 Opulence Basketball Main

Simply put, Panini America’s upcoming 2017-18 Opulence Basketball is . . . “a luxury basketball trading card set.” The product’s just-released solicitation material tells you as much from the top. Of course, one look at some of the jaw-droppers planned for the product and it’s obvious that you don’t need the sales material to tell you that. The cards clearly can speak for themselves in telling a best-of-both-worlds story detailing how the best parts of Gold Standard meld with the best parts of Preferred to create a completely new product.

Set to arrive in hobby shops across North America in early August, 2017-18 Opulence Basketball delivers, on average, seven autograph or memorabilia cards in each 10-card box. The product features the spectacular NBA Finals Booklets that first gained hobby-wide acclaim in Preferred, this time with game-worn jerseys from Game 2 of the 2017 NBA Finals between the Golden State Warriors and Cleveland Cavaliers.

Additional highlights of 2017-18 Opulence Basketball include . . .

  • Rare NBA Logoman versions of the NBA Finals Booklet chase.
  • On-card Rookie Autographs and on-card Rookie Patch Autographs limited to just 79 copies.
  • The hunt-instigating Octo Rookie Booklets (numbered to just 10 copies) featuring autographs from the top rookies in the vaunted 2017 NBA Draft Class: Markelle Fultz, Lonzo Ball, Jayson Tatum, De’Aaron FoxLauri Markkanen, Dennis Smith Jr., Donovan Mitchell and Kyle Kuzma.
