Collectors of high-end basketball cards are in for a treat on Halloween. While the new season will have already tipped off, 2017-18 Panini Flawless NBA basketball will arrive with its usual bounty of autographed and gem-studded cards.
Each box of Flawless will contain ten cards—at least seven of which will have an autograph. All signatures will be on-card. There will be one or two memorabilia cards and one card carrying one, two or three diamonds embedded in it.
Rookies, veterans and retired greats were expected to sign for the product, which is among the most expensive new sports card releases each year but remains popular with those who can afford the price tag—and with online box breakers. Packed in a briefcase, Flawless usually runs at least $1,500.
Logoman and Championship tags will be among the big hits with the Dual Diamond Memorabilia Logoman cards also a huge part of the chase. Those diamond cards will appear in low serial-numbered subsets including Triple Double, Top of the Class, Most Valuable and Champions, all of which will be limited to five or less.
Oversized autographed memorabilia cards will be found in Star Swatch Signatures, Horizontal Patch Autos and Vertical Patch autos.
As of now, 2017-18 Flawless NBA basketball is due out October 31.
