One of the first in-season basketball card releases has a college focus. 2016-17 Panini Immaculate Collegiate arrives this week, putting the high end brand onto Panini’s far-reaching college license.
Each six-card pack/box contains five autographs and one base card or parallel. Online pricing is currently at $375-$400 per box.
Immaculate Collegiate has a 40-card base set, but like other Immaculate products, it’s a high-end release that’s all about the autographs and relics.
The 2016-17 NBA rookie class has signed on card for Rookie Autographs and Patch Autographs.
The Immaculate Ink Combos subset features dual autographs from past collegiate superstars from the same alma mater including Anthony Davis and Karl-Anthony Towns.
Immaculate Numbers autographs will include on-card autos from the top rookies from the 2016 Draft Class, sequentially numbered to their college jerseys with 1-of-1 versions in the mix.
Some cards in boxes of 2016-17 Panini Immaculate Collegiate basketball will stray from the hoops side of things with a ten-card subset called Sport Variations featuring on-card autos from college football, basketball and baseball with a memorabilia version, sequentially numbered to 99 or less.
Full size memorabilia cards feature swatches from Rookie Premier Shoot caps and shoes while a Sneak Peek version features soles from player-worn shoes.
