The Book on 2019-20 Panini Opulence Basketball


2019-20 Panini Opulence Basketball cards is all about the big stuff. One could take that in more of a metaphorical sense, alluding to the checklist’s many luxury-level elements. You could also take it literally as the product gives plenty of attention to booklets — cards that open up to span two panels. There’s one such card in every box along with five additional autographs and memorabilia cards.

2019-20 Panini Opulence Basketball Overview

Much like the books that line the shelves at libraries, there’s a lot of variety in Opulence’s booklets.

Rookie Patch Autographs Booklets have a jumbo swatch on one side and an on-card autograph on the other. Parallels work in things like letters and logos.

They might not have a signature, Rookies Patches Booklets still go big on the memorabilia. Tags are among the rare parallels with these.

Game of Inches makes the jump to Opulence. These open up lengthwise with a pair of jumbo swatches. They’re paired with a die-cut player image, similar to what’s seen on Panini’s various Silhouettes.

All-Star Booklets and NBA Finals Booklets take a themed approach, using event-specific swatches. In the case of NBA Finals Booklets, pieces include jersey and patch swatches from the 2019 NBA Finals won by the Toronto Raptors.

On the autograph end of things, there are Rookie Octo Signature Booklets. These get their name from have ink from eight different first-year players.

2019-20 Opulence isn’t all books. The checklist has other traditionally sized hits as well. Among them is Gold Medal Jersey Autographs. The pieces on these are game-worn national team jerseys.
