The Panini America Quality Control Gallery: 2016-17 Prestige Basketball (100+ Images)

March 06, 2017


When it comes to mainstream, fit-for-all-collectors basketball products, it’s hard to beat Panini America’s venerable Prestige brand for value, variety and fun. And for the first time since 2013-14 season, it’s returning to the hobby. In addition to a broad base set, colorful action photography and lots of parallel chases, 2016-17 Prestige Basketball also delivers a robust roster of autograph and memorabilia cards and the rare Playmakers, Prestigious Pros and Prestigious Picks inserts.

Panini America’s Basketball Product Development team spent some quality time last week Quality Controlling 2016-17 Prestige Basketball during the packout process in advance of Wednesday’s release date. In the must-see gallery that follows, we showcase just some of what was discovered during the QC process.

On average, each hobby box of 2016-17 Prestige Basketball will deliver two autographs and one memorabilia card. In addition, each case will deliver three total cards (and possibly a fourth) from the Playmakers, Prestigious Pros and Prestigious Picks inserts.
