Share:

The last time Certified had its own standalone basketball set was in 2009-10, Panini’s first season with the exclusive NBA license. Now, nine years later, it’s coming back. 2018-19 Certified Basketball pivots from the Totally Certified take it has had for the past several seasons to get back to its original form.

2018-19 Panini Certified Basketball definitely has its eyes on autographs and memorabilia, but there’s a fair bit of variety outside of the premium hits as well. Hobby boxes, which have ten packs, come with a pair of signatures and one memorabilia card.
