From the very beginning, Panini America’s Donruss Optic product in any sport always has been a best-of-both-worlds proposition: The best of Donruss, the company’s flagship brand, and the best of Optichrome, the company’s wildly popular printing technology. The union of the two has been warmly embraced by collectors and has delivered some of the most in-demand single cards on the market. Today, that process continues with the release of 2018-19 Donruss Optic Basketball.

A product that’s virtually guaranteed to sell out upon release, 2018-19 Donruss Optic Basketball delivers, on average, one autograph and 20 inserts or parallels per hobby box (four cards per pack, 20 packs per box, 12 boxes per case). In the revealing Quality Control Gallery that follows, we offer a detailed exploration of the product by featuring some of the cards that surfaced during the recent packout process. Enjoy the early look and stay tuned to The Knight’s Lance for additional coverage.
