This years Panini Recon Basketball release is new - well, sort of. Last year in the 2019-20 Chronicles, we saw a little preview of what you’ll find in this now full release, which is a first for the line. 

In the substantive checklist for 2020-21 Panini Recon Basketball, collectors will find Recon base cards along with a healthy amount of chase cards, as every hobby pack will average one insert and one parallel, as well as two autos. The set size is still unknown, but below we provide a short summary of what collectors are due to find in this Recon Basketball release.

Rookie Recon and Recon Signature cards boast a shared style and mockup, while some serious color will be found in the True Potential Signatures. But the loudest designs will shine in the Recon inserts. From Maneuvers, Rookie Review, Future Legends, Rock the Rim, Scouting Reports, and Eyes on the Prize. And the Sky’s the Limit inserts will throwback to the late 90s flair of the EX brand with a cloudy backdrop.
