Teaser Gallery: Panini America Opens Boxes of 2018-19 Donruss Optic Basketball

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.
