Make no mistake about it: This particular hump day is a huge one in the trading card hobby — and not just because the 2018 National Sports Collectors Convention will open its doors in Cleveland this afternoon. That’s a pretty big deal, no doubt. But adding to the weighty nature of this Wednesday is the long-awaited return of Charles Barkley to the hobby with the release of Panini America’s 2017-18 Noir Basketball. Oh, yeah, Panini America also launches 2018 Immaculate Baseball and 2018 Elements Football today. Like we said, today is kind of a big deal.
To help prepare fans and collectors for all of today’s new releases, we’re going to be posting Teaser Gallery breaks of all three products right here on The Knight’s Lance, beginning with 2017-18 Noir Basketball. In the gallery that follows, we take you card by card through three boxes. On average, each 10-card hobby box of 2017-18 Noir Basketball will deliver seven autograph or memorabilia cards. Enjoy the imagery and stay tuned to The Knight’s Lance for continued coverage.
