2017/18 Panini Prestige Basketball Blaster Box
2017-18 Panini Prestige Basketball Hobby Box
Configuration: 8 Packs, 5 Cards Per Pack
2017-18 Panini Prestige Basketball Base / Inserts
The 200-card base set includes 150 veterans grouped by team in the 2017-18 Panini Prestige Basketball checklist. Coming at least one per pack, the final 50 cards are all for rookie players. Parallels include Hobby-only Crystal (#/199), Crystal Gold (#/10), Crystal Blue (1/1).
A variety of inserts combine with the parallels to average one per pack. Among the choices, there's All-Time Greats for the NBA legends, Hardcourt Heroes for the team leaders, and Stars of the NBA for the biggest current names. In addition, Highlight Reel offers impressive photography, Rookie Class centers on the first-year standouts, and Stat Stars celebrates those that really pile on the points, rebounds, assists and more. These options also have the same parallels as the base set, except the primary Crystal version is not numbered.
On the more rare side of 2017-18 Panini Prestige Basketball, the Playmakers insert is a case hit and the micro-etch Prestigious Picks cards average three per case.
There are also Micro-Etch Rookies inserts. These have Hobby-only Red versions, which average nine per box, and Pink parallels, numbered to 10 copies.
2017-18 Panini Prestige Basketball Autographs
As far as the two autographs per hobby box, collectors can look forward to the base Bonus Shots Signatures, Prestigious Signatures or Old School Signatures, each with Hobby-only Crystal parallels.
