Bringing the shiny appeal of chromium to the hobby staple that is Donruss, 2016-17 Donruss Optic Basketball makes its debut on the hardcourt for NBA collectors.
Offering deep first-year coverage, a 50-card rookie set helps form the bulk of 2016-17 Donruss Optic Basketball while themed inserts like All-Stars, The Champ is Here and The Elite Series offer more choices. Adding to that, rainbow collectors are in luck with Holo, Red (#/99), Blue (#/49), Gold (#/10), Green (#/5) and Gold Vinyl (1/1) parallels to chase.
As far as hobby hits, the Hall Dominators Signatures insert takes on up to 30 Hall of Fame subjects, including David Robinson, Karl Malone and Shaq. Meanwhile, Dominators Signatures mixes retired legends and current stars like Allen Iverson and Karl-Anthony Towns. Of course, you can't forget the first-year players. They are featured in Rookie Dominators Signatures. These signed sets also come as Gold (#/10) and Gold Vinyl (1/1) parallels.
