The Panini America Quality Control Gallery: 2017-18 Impeccable Basketball (42 Pics)

Panini America 2017-18 Impeccable Basketball QC1

No matter how much high-end hoops collectors appreciated¬†Panini America’s debut edition of Impeccable Basketball last season (and judging by sales results last year, they appreciated it a lot), the upcoming 2017-18 Impeccable Basketball has even more going for it in year two. Primarily, it has the brand debut of Charles Barkley, and that’s a product enhancement that simply can’t be oversold. But the “Round Mound of Rebound” is just one reason for all of the excitement leading up to Wednesday’s release.

On average, each hobby box of 2017-18 Impeccable Basketball (nine cards per box, three boxes per case) will deliver five autographs, three base or parallel cards and either one Metal card or a card featuring a piece of Silver or Gold. New for this year is the Stainless Stars set that features autograph parallels signed on metal. Among the product’s other high-demand inclusions, aside from the obviously hot Rookie Jersey Autographs, will be the Impeccable Stats, Impeccable Numbers, Impeccable All-Stars and Impeccable Draft Pick autographs numbered to the specific stat highlighted on each card.

In the Quality Control Gallery that follows, we showcase some of the gems that surfaced during the recent packout process. Enjoy the early look and stay tuned to The Knight’s Lance for continued coverage.
