2017-18 Panini Noir Basketball CardsBrand: Noir
A yin-and-yang approach to NBA cards, 2017-18 Panini Noir Basketball utilizes contrasting design styles and a premium format that delivers seven hits per Hobby box. All autographs are hard-signed.
This marks the fourth edition for the high-end NBA product, which started in 2014-15.
2017-18 Panini Noir Basketball Base / Inserts
Joining the base set that should supply three cards per box, 2017-18 Panini Noir Basketball features Metal Frame cards that are numbered to just 25 copies. In addition to Alternate Metal Frame cards for base and rookie players, collectors can find themed Feature Length, Split Screen and Vintage Art cards.
2017-18 Panini Noir Basketball Autographs
With only on-card signatures, the 2017-18 Panini Noir Basketball checklist features some popular options, including RPAs. The Noir Rookie Patch Autograph line also offers low-numbered Super Prime and Tag parallels.
The Autographs Prime insert is another place to track down first-year stars, while the Patch Autographs set features both active and retired players.
Perhaps most striking, the gold-ink Spotlight Signatures goes with past, present and future stars. The orientation switches between horizontal and vertical layouts.
2017-18 Panini Noir Basketball Memorabilia
Combining with the autographs to fall seven per box, most of the 2017-18 Panini Noir Basketball memorabilia inserts are further enhanced with Prime and Tag parallels. The selection includes Jumbo Materials and Rookie Jumbo Materials. Only for the retired standouts, Icons Memorabilia looks back and the dual-player Two-Shot Rookie Jerseys looks ahead.
Providing a memorabilia timeline, of sorts, Episodic Materials is a multi-relic set that revisits several career points for one notable player.
Estimated Release Date: 07/25/2018
