The 2023 Panini Contenders Basketball Card Set will be released on March 22, 2024. Each pack will contain 8 cards, each hobby box 4 packs, and each case will have 12 hobby boxes.

Collectors will be treated to eight (8) cards per pack, four (4) packs per hobby box, and twelve (12) hobby boxes per case. The best cards will be Wemby and Chet base rookie cards and their inserts.

Pro-Tip: Look for short-printed Premium Edition Autographs, which can be found in Gold (/10) and Gold Vinyl (/1) versions. These SP cards will be worth their weight in gold at top grades.
