First Look: Panini America Peeks Upcoming 2017-18 Spectra Basketball (Gallery)
April 12, 2018

It’s about as colorful and as charismatic as a trading card product can get. It’s a different-by-design kind of take on Panini America’s popular Prizm technology with a rainbow array of parallel chases, lots of autographs and lots of memorabilia. It annually delivers some of the most striking single cards in the game with a hit-heavy recipe rife with prime possibilities. It, of course, is Spectra Basketball — and it arrives for the 2017-18 season in mid June.

2017-18 Spectra Basketball returns this summer with a new parallel structure that features Silver Prizms (two per case) and White Sparkle Prizms (one per case). Other Prizms to chase this year include Neon Blue (numbered to 99), Red (numbered to 75), Neon Green (numbered to 49), Neon Pink (numbered to 25), Neon Orange (numbered to five) and the spectacular Nebula 1/1s. On average, each hobby box of 2017-18 Spectra Basketball (nine cards per box, eight boxes per case) will deliver one base card, two parallels, three autographs and three memorabilia cards.
