Presented is a 1996-97 SP Basketball box. The box has 30 packs of eight cards each. It’s sealed and every box comes with an Inside Info box topper. These cards have a component that slides out to reveal more images. There is also a rare Inside Info Gold parallel. It is wrapped in plastic with small Upper Deck logos all over it.
Possible Key 1996-97 SP Basketball Cards that may be in the box include:
Kobe Bryant RC #134
Steve Nash RC #142
Allen Iverson RC #141
Ray Allen RC #136
Stephon Marbury RC #137
1996-97 SP Basketball ups the ante as far as technology and the hobby go. With inserts freely mixing foil, holograms and other premium designs, the release would still stand out as different in today’s marketplace. The release is further bolstered by a deep crop of rookies, all of which are very affordable when compared with some other sets.
Rookie cards, the final 20 cards in the set, have a totally different design. A posed portrait takes up most of the card. A large blue stripe runs vertically up the left side of the card, acting as a name plate. It also notes the Premier Prospects subset. 1996-97 SP Basketball has several top rookie cards, including Kobe Bryant, Steve Nash and Allen Iverson. Although this is a super premium brand, these rookie cards be found relatively cheaply, especially when you compare them to what their 1996-97 Topps Chrome and 1996-97 Topps Finest counterparts go for.
Where 1996-97 SP Basketball really stands out is with its inserts. Holoviews (40 cards, 1:10 packs) are highlighted by the familiar player hologram. However, this year’s design also includes etched foil to make the look even stronger. Game Film (ten cards, 1:120 packs) are die-cut cards that use a pair of slides to showcase the player. SPx Force (five cards, 1:360 packs) have four player holograms and a distinct die-cut design. Michael Jordan, Damon Stoudamire, Shawn Kemp and Anfernee Hardaway each signed 100 cards.
