Teaser Gallery: Panini America Breaks Two Early Boxes of 2016-17 Prizm Basketball

November 08, 2016

This time tomorrow, Americans will be welcoming (or not welcoming, depending on your personal leanings) a new President. And while there’s no denying the bitterness of a riveting campaign season that pitted Hillary Clinton vs. Donald Trump, we think we have a platform on which everyone, regardless of party affiliation, can stand: Panini America’s 2016-17 Prizm Basketball.
The colors. The rainbow chase. The Rookie Cards. The autographs. They’re all back for a new season in 2016-17 Prizm Basketball, the Optichrome-enhanced collector favorite that arrives in hobby shops across North America tomorrow in a Hobby Jumbo format featuring 12 packs with 12 cards each. We offered a revealing deep-dive on the product last week with the must-see Quality Control Gallery. Today, we’re taking you pack by pack through two early boxes.

One thing to note as you’re enjoying the imagery that follows: There’s a Lou Williams Prizm parallel numbered to 25 that we pulled in our first box. That particular card features the Prizm 5th Anniversary logo in the background. That’s actually a production issue that impacted card #’s 101-200 only. There’s a base 5th Anniversary parallel (card #’s 1-300) in which all cards are numbered to just five. There’s also a parallel numbered to 25 for card #’s 1-100 and #’s 201-300 all cards in the set. But only card #’s 101-200 have a 5th Anniversary version numbered to 25.
Now . . . to the images . . .
