2016-17 Replay Basketball preview

The 2016-17 Panini Replay Basketball trading card release will feature inserts that contain plenty of autograph and memorabilia cards.

Panini America is delving into its proud NBA history to deliver a trading card product unlike any the company has ever produced – 2015-16 Replay Basketball. In addition to being the shortest-printed release of the 2015-16 NBA collecting season, it will afford collectors the rare opportunity to chase some of the greatest NBA cards in Panini America history.

Every three-card box of 2016-17 Replay Basketball will deliver two hard-signed autograph cards from the company’s past releases and one rookie card numbered to 99 or less. Every autographed card will be embossed, hand-numbered and sealed in a One-Touch. The RC checklist includes the top 25 players from the 2015-16 NBA Draft and is paralleled by scarce Photo Variations.


The partial autograph checklist boasts an assortment of extremely short-printed signature cards, including Anthony Davis (41 autographs, 21 different cards), Blake Griffin (384, 38), Chris Paul (36, 10), Allen Iverson (22, 4), Damian Lillard (12, 6), DeMar DeRozan (236, 13), Dirk Nowitzki (58, 8), Dwyane Wade (21, 8), James Harden (17, 10), Jimmy Butler (41, 6), John Wall (25, 7), Kevin Durant (138,31), Kobe Bryant (143, 20), Kyrie Irving (76, 27), Ray Allen (16,7), Scottie Pippen (21, 14) and Stephen Curry (57, 17).

All autographs in the product are signed on-card and originate from past Panini America products released between 2009 and 2015. Replay Basketball has a Dec. 7 release date.
