Thanks in large part to Zion Williamson and a deep rookie crop, 2019-20 has seen no shortage of big hoops products. 2019-20 Panini National Treasures Basketball joins that list with a configuration centered primarily on super-premium autographs and memorabilia cards.
Each hobby hobby box has eight total hits plus one printing plate. A base card or parallel rounds things out.
Rookie Patch Autographs aren’t just a staple of National Treasures. They often represent the sport’s most coveted Rookie Cards each year. As usual, they’ve got on-card sigs and jumbo patch swatches.
Besides the base versions, there are a variety of low-numbered parallels including Logoman.
2019-20 National Treasures has a variety of other autograph memorabilia inserts.
Colossal Signatures return with jumbo pieces.
Logoman Autographs, which have veterans and retired stars on its checklist, and Treasured Tags are all one-of-ones. Charles Barkley, Stephen Curry and Shaquille O’Neal are among those in the set.
Other autograph inserts include Personalized, Clutch Factor Signatures, Peerless Signatures and Definitive Ink.
Among the highlights for the memorabilia cards are NBA Finals Nameplate. These take letters from the backs of jerseys worn during the 2019 NBA Finals.
