Teaser Gallery: Panini America Breaks Early Boxes of 2016-17 Court Kings Basketball

November 30, 2016

Panini America’s 2016-17 Court Kings Basketball arrives in hobby shops across North America on Friday and you can bet it will be basking in the trademark blend of vibrant colors, artistic nuance and NBA majesty that has served the product so well during a decorated run that started with the 2009-10 release. As you saw in yesterday’s Quality Control Gallery, everything that collectors have come to covet in Court Kings — the oversized Box Toppers, the Performance Art game-dated memorabilia cards, the oversized Art Nouveau memorabilia cards, the tiered Rookie Card structure and more — returns in a big way.
In the Teaser Gallery that follows, we take you card by card through five early boxes of 2016-17 Court Kings Basketball, an aesthetically pleasing experience that showcases the refreshing nature of the brand. On average, each 10-card box should deliver one autograph, one memorabilia card, two Rookie Cards, two inserts or parallels and four base cards. But as you’ll see, one of our boxes delivered a bonus 11th card in the form of a second autograph.

Pay close attention to the Rookie Cards pulled in boxes below. Rookies I and Rookies II are the most common versions while Rookies III (four per case) and Rookies IV (one per case) are significantly tougher. Also tough? The once-per-case Aurora chase and the once-per-case Autographed Box Toppers.
Stay tuned to the Panini America social media channels in the coming days. We have one more box to open and we’re going to give away the contents. Until then, though, enjoy the imagery . . .
