My familiarity of the word “Spectra” came from Hotwheels where cars are having a spectra-flame design but now we can also see it in Basketball trading cards as Panini announced the upcoming release of 2013-14 Spectra Basketball.
This product will be an eight cards per pack and one pack per box configuration. As per this writing, the current pre-sell price of the box is $270 (subject to change).
Below are the additional details as mentioned from Knight’s Lance blog.
Slated to release July 16, 2013-14 Spectra Basketball will deliver four autographed memorabilia cards, one memorabilia card, one parallel numbered to 65 or less and two base cards numbered to 199 in every eight-card pack. A vivid new rainbow of colorful parallels awaits, including base Greens (#’d to 199), Blues (#’d to 65), Red Die-Cuts (#’d to 25), Golds (#’d to 10) and Blacks (#’d to one).
- Some of the biggest stars in the NBA are featured in the Spectacular Swatch Signatures autographed memorabilia insert.
- The top rookies of the 2013-14 NBA season are featured in the Rookie Jersey Autographs chase.
- Jumbo Prime Materials numbered to 10 or less.
- The massive memorabilia of Rookie Jumbo Jerseys, featuring Prime parallels numbered to 10 and one.
- Every card in the set is printed on thick Optichrome cards.
Well all I can say is that we have another round of rainbow chase but this time it comes in thicker cards. Get ready with those thick toploaders and one touch magnetics.
