October 04, 2016

Panini America is set to celebrate college basketball’s biggest names — whether they’ve gone on to become NBA superstars or have yet to make their professional debuts — with tomorrow’s release of 2016 Contenders Draft Picks Basketball, an era-spanning product that embodies the legacy, passion and pageantry of college hoops — with an abundance of autographs.
A colorful launch featuring popular staples such as Season Tickets, Game Day Tickets, School Colors, Old School Colors, a bevy of chase-worthy parallels (Draft Tickets, Cracked Ice Tickets and Championship Tickets) and a deep autograph roster that includes College Tickets, Alumni Ink and more.

Featuring the first certified autographs of key rookies such as Brandon Ingram, Kris Dunn, Marquese Chriss, Buddy Hield and so many more, 2016 Contenders Draft Picks Basketball is engineered to deliver the goods. On average, each hobby box (eight cards per pack, 24 packs per box) will deliver five autographs.
In the Quality Control Gallery that follows, we showcase a little bit of everything that surfaced during the recent packout process. Enjoy the sneak peek and stay tuned to The Knight’s Lance for continued coverage of 2016 Contenders Draft Picks Basketball.
