Panini is going big with basketball.
Panini is creating a jumbo hobby box version of 2013-14 NBA Hoops Basketball when it releases in late October, the company announced today. Each jumbo box will have 10 packs of 50 cards each – that’s 500 cards in one box.
Each box will contain two autographs, one memorabilia, 50 parallels, one Artist’s Proofs and more than 100 inserts.
This is also the debut of the 2013-14 NBA Rookie Cards with the likes of Anthony Bennett, Nerlens Noel and C.J. McCollum.
Panini has included several inserts in this release with Dreams, Board Members, Class Action and Spark Plugs. In addition, Kobe’s All-Rookie Team is back along with Highlights, featuring moments from the 2012-13 season.
When it comes to parallels, along with Artist’s Proofs, collectors can also find 30 Red Back variations in each jumbo hobby box.
The photography will feature different angles with shots taken from above the rim and the sidelines to give collectors a different look.
