Panini America’s colorful, Prizm-infused Spectra brand has wasted precious little time in etching out a loyal following among hardhcore hoops collectors. In fact, with just one inaugural release last season, Spectra Basketball became a bona fide favorite — as much for its perfect-for-Prizm designs as for its rich autograph and memorabilia content. When the second installment arrives next week, collectors will revel in the fact that the brand has only improved with age.
2014-15 Spectra Basketball releases one week from today and will deliver seven autograph or memorabilia cards in every box. The product this year also has been bolstered by the addition of Global Icons, a one-per-case chase insert that showcases some of the game’s greatest international players. After the jump, you can discover a little bit of everything else the product has to offer.

Early last Friday morning, Panini America officials began the packout process for 2014-15 Immaculate Basketball, easily one of this season’s most anticipated releases across all sports. Bolstered by the fascinating return of Sneak Peek, a spectacularly stacked autograph roster and some of the sickest memorabilia cards you’ll ever see, this year’s Immaculate is seemingly equipped to be the best iteration in the brand’s short-but-proud history.

The 2015 Industry Summit is set to officially kick off tomorrow in Las Vegas as registered guests — retailers, distributors, card manufacturers, league officials — settle in for three straight days of meaningful meetings, round table discussions, new product reveals and spirited interaction that aims to have a positive industry impact in the coming year.
As has become its custom, Panini America will take a leading role in the Industry Summit once again this year, headlined by the company’s annual Tuesday address. But it’s what happens after that address — the distribution of the company’s fabled Black Boxes — that’s likely to steal its share of Summit headlines. Earlier this week we brought you a revealing first look at this year’s Black Box breakdown. Today, we’re digging a little deeper.
