iCollectPanini.com earlier today launched a limited-edition version of one of the hottest trading card products on the market — 2018-19 Donruss Optic Basketball — that delivers a uniquely different Optic experience that’s available only at the official online store of Panini America while supplies last. The 2018-19 Donruss Optic Basketball Premium Box Set is limited to just 249 sets and includes 201 cards: 150 veterans, 50 Rated Rookies and one Rated Rookie Autograph numbered to just 10.
While many of us at Panini America hit the road last week for a jam-packed schedule of Super Bowl LIII responsibilities that kicked off one week ago tonight with the Panini Super Bowl Kid Reporter dominating Super Bowl Opening Night, there were a few new releases that arrived in hobby shops last week to generate a healthy amount of buzz on their own: 2018 Limited Football and 2018-19 Donruss Optic Basketball. Both products have been blazing on the secondary market since arriving last Wednesday and, today, we’re bringing you — albeit a bit belatedly — the customary Teaser Gallery box-break posts that typically arrive just before release day.
From the very beginning, Panini America’s Donruss Optic product in any sport always has been a best-of-both-worlds proposition: The best of Donruss, the company’s flagship brand, and the best of Optichrome, the company’s wildly popular printing technology. The union of the two has been warmly embraced by collectors and has delivered some of the most in-demand single cards on the market. Today, that process continues with the release of 2018-19 Donruss Optic Basketball.
While we’re still a few weeks away from the hobby release of Panini America’s highly anticipated 2018-19 Donruss Optic Basketball, it’s worth noting that “1st Off The Line” boxes of the product open for presell tomorrow at 10 a.m. CST exclusively on iCollectPanini.com. Of course, retail versions of the product will arrive just a week or so after the January 30 hobby release. And it’s the latter version of the product that we’re focusing on today. In the revealing gallery that follows, we offer you an extended first look at some of the retail-exclusives available in the popular product.
