Panini America 2016-17 Studio Basketball QC2

How long has it been since Panini America last delivered a Studio Basketball product to the marketplace? That’s a rhetorical question, really. But it’s been a while. Like, almost 1,900 Stephen Curry 3-pointers ago. In fact, when 2009-10 Studio Basketball arrived in the winter of 2010, Curry was still a rookie, along with the rest of that celebrated class that included James Harden, Blake Griffin, DeMar DeRozan and more.

A lot has changed in the seven or so years since that maiden Studio Basketball release. Curry is a massive superstar entering his third straight NBA Finals appearance. Griffin and Harden and DeRozan are known throughout the world. And Studio Basketball is about to make a rousing return to the hardwood.

Set to arrive next Friday, 2016-17 Studio Basketball brings a tiered 300-card base set with card #’s 1-100 featuring action photography, card #’s 101-200 (Studio Edition) featuring portrait-style photography and card #’s 201-300 (Sketch) featuring sketch-art imagery. Each tier grows increasingly tougher to pull with Studio Edition falling approximately 15 per box and Sketch falling roughly one per box.

On average, each hobby box of 2016-17 Studio Basketball (six cards per pack, 10 packs per box, eight boxes per inner case, two inner cases per master case) will deliver one autograph and one memorabilia card. The illustrated From Downtown! chase should fall once per inner case and the tough Top Five insert should fall once per master case.

In the revealing Quality Control Gallery that follows, we offer a captivating preview of the multidimensional 2016-17 Studio Basketball. Enjoy the imagery and stay tuned to The Knight’s Lance for continued coverage.
