A new basketball card brand will arrive later in the NBA season with Panini set to push out 2021-22 Recon Basketball.
The name isn’t totally new. Recon was used inside last season’s Chronicles Basketball product, but now becomes a standalone product, with a release date of October 27.
It’s a fairly straightforward release with ten pack boxes (six cards per pack) holding two autographs, base cards, ten base parallels and ten inserts or insert parallels.
Purple, blue and green appear to be the dominant colors if the pre-sale information is any indication.
There’s no word yet on the size of the base set, but we do know base parallels include Holo, Holo Spiral, Holo Pink, Holo Bronze, Hold Red(#’d/199), Holo Blue (#’d/99), Holo Purple(#’d/49). Holo Gold(#’d/10), Hold Green (#’d/5), and Holo Platinum(#’d/1).
Insert sets include Maneuvers, Rookie Review, Future Legends, Rock the Rim, Rookie Recon, Scouting Reports, Eyes on the Prize, and Sky’s the Limit.
Autograph subsets include Recon Signatures and Rookie Recon Signatures along with True Potential Signatures, featuring promising young players. There will also be retired player autographs.
The SRP is $150 per box.
