The Panini America Quality Control Gallery: 2016-17 Grand Reserve Basketball

July 13, 2017

Panini America 2016-17 Grand Reserve Basketball QC Gallery2

It’s not often that collectors have the opportunity to get in on the ground floor of a new release, but that’s exactly the opportunity at hand for basketball collectors next week when Panini America unveils 2017¬†Grand Reserve Basketball. The newest addition to the company’s NBA product portfolio boasts an eclectic mix of designs, card stocks, and technologies — not to mention plenty of on-card autographs.

On average, each hobby box of 2017 Grand Reserve Basketball (eight cards per pack, three packs per box) will deliver at least two autographs and one additional autograph or memorabilia card. One of those autographs in each box will hail from the unique Cornerstones Jersey Autographs insert that features veterans, rookies and legends in base (numbered to 99 or less), Quartz (numbered to 49 or less), Granite (numbered to 25 or less), Marble (numbered to 10) and Onyx 1/1 versions.

Other highlights of this debut release include the Number Ones and One of a Kind autograph inserts (both 1/1 chases), Team Slogans memorabilia cards, the one-per-case All Systems Go insert and the even-rarer Closing Statements insert.

With the product set to arrive in hobby shops across North America next Wednesday, we hope the following Quality Control Gallery¬†sufficiently whets your appetite until release day. Enjoy the imagery and stay tuned to The Knight’s Lance for continued coverage.
