The inaugural edition of Panini America’s Obsidian Basketball arrives exclusively on iCollectPanini.com tomorrow at 10 a.m. CST and, as you’ll see in the must-see Teaser Gallery that follows, the product is rife with the kind of in-demand qualities that tend to make products instant sensations these days. Which is to say . . . Optichrome technology, designs tailored specifically to take advantage of that technology, colorful and rare parallels, and rich autograph and memorabilia content.
Add it all up and it’s easy to see why Obsidian’s pioneering football foray last season paved the way for the product’s transition to the hardwood for the 2018-19 season. On average, each hobby box of 2018-19 Obsidian Basketball (five cards per box, 12 boxes per case) will deliver two autographs, two parallel or insert cards and one base or Rookie Card.
To help properly prepare fans and collectors for tomorrow’s official release, we broke five random boxes earlier today. Enjoy the break and stay tuned for additional coverage. The product will be available exclusively at iCollectPanini.com beginning at 10 a.m. CST tomorrow.
