The Basics: Each box will include two rookies atop the hits and in some cases there will be Hot Boxes with extra autographs and memorabilia cards. Rookies will have four types of RCs in this one with different designs and tiered print runs. Among the autographed possibilities are 5-by-7 box-topper autos (if not signed there is an unsigned one), Heir Apparent, Fresh Paint and Fresh Paint Duals. Among the signers for the box-toppers are Kobe Bryant, Kevin Durant, Pau Gasol, Andrew Wiggins, Damian Lillard and Kyrie Irving. … On the memorabilia side one of the options will be Art Nouveau cards and those will have a rarer nameplate version. … A one-per-case Aurora insert will focus on big names in the league today, while Dieci Migliore inserts also will be rare and focus on 10 of the best in the league. Overall, inserts will be found one per box and other inserts will include Points in the Paint, Emerging Artists and Blank Slate. … Just like last year, boxes carry a suggested retail price of $72.
