After a short holiday break, basketball card collectors will have something fresh to look at this week with the arrival of 2017-18 Panini Revolution basketball. The third edition of the colorful product is due to arrive Friday.
Each box has eight backs with five cards per pack and should have four rookie cards, two inserts and eight parallels, but no guarantee of an autograph or relic card. Autographs are packed six or seven per 16-box case.
autograph checklist does have some big names including Kevin Durant, Damian Lillard, Dirk Nowitzki, Kobe Bryant, Shaquille O’Neal and several top members of the 2017-18 rookie class. Both Autographs and Rookie Autographs feature a Cubic parallel (#’d/50) and a Kaleido parallel (#’d/1).
Beyond the autographs, Galactic parallel cards will be the big chase with just one falling in each case. Galactic is joined by Cosmic (#’d/100), Sunburst (#’d/75), Cubic (#’d/50), and Lava (#’d/10). Also look for unnumbered Astro, Groove, Fractal, and Impact.
Vortex, Liftoff and Show Stoppers are die-cut cards printed on foil board with stamped foil highlights.
Boxes are available via this link for around $75-$80.
