The season is over, but the new NBA trading card releases continue to trickle out. Among those set for release this fall is 2020-21 Panini Spectra, a colorful, Opti-Chrome release that houses the popular Color Blast case hits.
Spectra packs four packs per hobby box with four cards per pack and eight boxes per case. Each box will hold four autographs and four parallel cards (one of each per pack).
It’s a space-oriented theme with parallels of the base set to include Silver, Celestial, Interstellar, Meta, Gold, Universal Die-Cut, Marble, and Nebula. A new subset this year is Spectacular Debut, which showcases players who made a splash as their NBA careers began.
The Rookie Jersey Autograph cards will carry on-card signatures. LaMelo Ball, Anthony Edwards, James Wiseman and other top rookies will be on the checklist. There will be parallels, as usual, including 1/1 Logoman versions.
Information on the content as a whole is fairly scarce at the moment but you can look for additioinal autograph content that includes Rookie Dual Patches, Catalyst and Illustrious Legends.
The Color Blast insert checklist will feature 25 of the top current and retired greats as well as some ’20-21 rookies.
The tentative release date for 2020-21 Panini Spectra Basketball is October 27.
