Spectra Basketball features Optichrome printing technology

Mid-June will see the release of 2017-18 Spectra Basketball, which will once again feature colorful cards using Optichrome printing technology.

Over the course of its first few years in existence, Panini America’s Spectra Basketball franchise has contained a litany of colorful calling cards and deft utilization of the company’s still-captivating Optichrome printing technology. It’s been a winning recipe rife with big hits for the last three years. It’s a recipe that will be repeated, but with a few new twists.

Set to arrive in mid-June, 2016-17 Spectra Basketball will deliver, on average, seven autograph or memorabilia cards in every 10-card box (six boxes per case). Every autographed card in the product features a piece of memorabilia and a chase-worthy ensemble of parallels, including the all-new Nebula 1/1 version.

Highlights of the product include:

• Global Icons Memorabilia Autographs showcasing 15 of the most popular NBA players from around the world.
