If you have fond memories of sets like Fleer Pro Visions, enjoy a little Italian flair now and then and are looking for a box with some on-card rookie autographs, 2017-18 Panini Court Kings basketball might be for you.
Set to arrive December 6, Court Kings returns with ten cards per one-pack box, one of which should be signed. Panini also promises one memorabilia card, at least one insert and two rookie cards. Each rookie will have four variations with different designs and varying print runs. Random hot boxes will contain multiple autographs and memorabilia.
Panini promises on-card rookie autographs in the Fresh Paint and Heir Apparent inserts. Fresh Paint will also have a dual autograph element with signatures from two of this year’s NBA draftees.
From the artistry to the names of some of the subsets, there’s always a bit of a European feel to Court Kings. One of this year’s inserts is called Dieci Migliore, which is Italian for “Ten Best”. There’s an “Art Nouveau” memorabilia insert that has jumbo swatches including an SSP nameplate version.
Other insert sets include the all-new Points in the Paint, Emerging Artists, Blank Slate and the one-per-case Aurora.
2017-18 Panini Court Kings is available online with prices generally between $80 and $100 per box.
