Panini America Provides Detailed First Look at 2018-19 Spectra Basketball (Gallery)

March 13, 2019

Panini America’s Spectra Basketball franchise first made a name for itself years ago by taking the company’s fabled Optichrome printing technology to the next level with extra-thick cards, a bevy of Prizm-friendly designs and a stunning display of color that seems to raise the bar every single year. In early May, the bar gets raised again with the release of 2018-19 Spectra Basketball.

Set to arrive in hobby shops across North America on May 8, each hobby box of 2018-19 Spectra Basketball (eight cards per box, eight boxes per case) will deliver, on average, four autographs and one memorabilia card. The product once again will be equipped with a full complement of glamorous parallels and the calling-card Rookie Jersey Autographs chase.

Additional highlights of 2018-19 Spectra Basketball include . . .

  • Hard-signed Rookie Jersey Autographs paralleled by Neon Blue (numbered to 99), Neon Green (numbered to 49), Neon Pink (numbered to 25), Gold (numbered to 10), Neon Orange (numbered to five) and Nebula 1/1 versions.
  • A plethora of stunning base parallels including Silver, Neon Blue (numbered to 99), Red (numbered to 75), Neon Green (numbered to 49), Neon Pink (numbered to 25), Gold (numbered to 10), Neon Orange (numbered to five), Nebula 1/1s and White Sparkle.
  • The new short-printed Head Liners insert.
  • On-card autographs in In The Zone Autographs and Illustrious Legends Signatures.
