2018-19 Panini Flawless Basketball

The absolute pinnacle of the NBA release calendar needs no introduction. 2018-19 Panini Flawless Basketball will release on the 9th of October 2019 and bring with it all the elements that has ensured it position atop of the NBA throne. Featuring the only release of the year with game worn Rookie memorabilia the chase will be on to obtain the much sough after Rookie Patch Autographs of this years top rookies. Luka Doncic, Trae Young, DeAndre Ayton, Jaren Jackson Jr, Marvin Bagley, Colin Sexton, Michael Porter Jr and more will feature in the release alongside an impressive list of current and retired NBA stars.Look for Jumbo prime memorabilia swatch autographs in Star Swatch Signatures, Flawless Patch Autographs, Signature Prime Materials, Rookie Logoman Autographs, Logoman Autographs, Championship Tags Autographs, Laundry Tags Autographs and Diamond Base Cards. Each box contains 10 cards, with 8 on-card autographs, 1 memorabilia card and one diamond card meaning plenty of big hits, but you expect that with such a phenomenal price tag of $1500USD per box!
2019-20 Panini Prizm College Draft Picks

2019-20 Panini Prizm Draft Picks College Basketball

A new addition to the Basketball release schedule sees 2019-20 Panini Prizm Draft Picks College Basketball becoming the third collegiate based release behind Contenders Draft Picks and Flawless Collegiate. Showcasing the best talent from the NCAA look for 5 autographs per box meaning one per pack. Each autographed card will be printed using Panini's Optichrome technology meaning they will be all Prizm variations. Look for the College Ties autograph set which will feature dual signatures of college teammates! If a Zion and RJ Barret variation exists it will certainly command a lot of attention.The base set will feature three different variations of standard base, Crusade and All-American. These will numerous variations including hobby exclusive Gold, Gold-Vinyl and Black Mosaic. An additional set that is an interesting deviation from previous Prizm releases is the Color Blast cards. These rainbow colored clean designs are somewhat out of place in a Prizm release, but depending on the final in hand design, they could be quite impressive.Boxes will have a suggested retail price of $120USD and we expect to see 2019-20 Panini Prizm Draft Picks College Basketball release to collectors on the 16th of October 2019. No word yet if a First Off The Line version will be released but if it does expect the same frenzy as seen with Contenders Draft Picks Basketball!
2018-19 Panini Obsidian Basketball

2018-19 Panini Obsidian Basketball

We were given a glimpse of this product as part of the 2018-19 Panini Chronicles Basketball release and at short notice it was announced that 2018-19 Panini Obsidian Basketball would be coming to collectors via a direct to consumer release. Now available on the Panini America website this mid to low end release is sure to turn a few heads with it's striking micro etch design.Whilst the autographs are all stickers the general appeal of this release is actually the base cards. Printed on thicker 100pt stock and featuring a smooth Prizm like surface they are quite an attractive design. The full array of top 2018 NBA Rookies are present in this set including Luka Doncic, Trae Young, DeAndre Ayton, Marvin Bagley, Jaren Jackson Jnr, Colin Sexton, Michael Porter Jnr and more. At $120USD per box they represent reasonable value even if there are only 5 cards per box due to it holding 2 autographs on average and are all numbered to 75 or less. The rookie jersey autographs of the bigger name players are limited to 50 or less making them a little harder to hit, but rarer as a result. Based on the checklist it looks like this is a limited print run product with around 450 cases available in total.

2019-20 Panini Contenders Draft Picks Collegiate Basketball

The much anticipated first licences release of the upcoming NBA season has been announced, and as expected it will be 2019-20 Panini Contenders Draft Picks Collegiate Basketball. But the most anticipated news has yet to be announced and that is whether or not Zion Williamson will feature in Panini products. It seems that we will have to wait a bit longer before that news is released.The product design has been significantly revamped this year with the key cards, the RPS College Ticket Autographs, now a horizontal design. The cracked ice #/25 set is always the most sought after and it will return again alongside the #/99, #/15 and #/1 variations. International Tickets are also included in the release and will feature the top-foreign born 2019 draft picks also numbered #/99, #/23, #/15 and #/1.A 10 card Season Ticket set will feature some of the greatest players to ever step foot on a college basketball court. Additionally Game Day Ticket Autographs of the 2019 NBA Rookie Class will be included in the set (sticker autographs) as well as the Turning Pro and Legacy Signatures sets for non-rookie players.
2018-19 Panini Immaculate Basketball

2018-19 Panini Immaculate Basketball

Rookie Dual Logoman Autographs. These are what collectors chase in Immaculate, and this will be the case yet again when 2018-19 Panini Immaculate Basketball releases on the 28th August 2019. The hope is that a dual Luka Doncic and Trae Young Logoman Autograph will be in the set, and that card will most definitely be the hit of the release for anyone lucky enough to find it.One key improvement for the 2018-19 release is that all Rookie Patch Autographs, Premium Patch Autographs and Patch Autographs will be printed on an acetate surface. This is likely to improve the quality of these cards but does increase the potential for surface flaws due to scratching if they are not packaged and handled carefully.Dual, Triple and Quad Autographs will also return and feature some of the most unique combinations of current and former NBA players. Sole of the Game show swatches, Brand Logo patches and Jumbo Patch Jersey Numbers will headline the memorabilia sets but there is no indication of whether the autographed shoe cards will return this year or not.

2018-19 Panini Opulence Basketball

Great wealth or luxuriousness, that is the definition of opulence. There is no doubting the pedigree of 2018-19 Panini Opulence Basketball when it is full of high-end cards, on-card autographs, low print run sets and NBA Finals Booklets. These are just some of the main selling points for the release, which returns for its sophomore year.Each box is limited to a single pack featuring 7 Autograph or Memorabilia cards. All autos are on-card and numbered to 99 or less, with the main hits being the impressive booklets. For the rookies the booklets feature rookie patch autos, nameplate logo autos, team logo autos, brand logo autos and sponsor logo autos, whilst the highly sought after NBA Finals patches and logo return again. Whilst the NBA Finals logo is definitely one of the most sought after in the product, the limited print run Octo Rookie Auto Booklet is definitely going to be a long term investment noting the calibre of the 2018 NBA Rookie class. The card will feature autographs from Luke Doncic, Trae Young, DeAndre Ayton, Kevin Knox, Jaren Jackson Jr, Marvin Bagley Jr, Colin Sexton and Wendell Carter as shown in the preview image below.
