2021 Panini Chronicles Draft Picks Basketball Mega Box Break


With no 2021-22 basketball product release on the immediate horizon, collectors will have to turn to Panini Chronicles Draft Picks for their new card fix. Those who haven’t purchased cards in awhile may be in for a slight sticker shock. Hanger Boxes run $16, Blasters $27.50, and Megas a whopping $50.

Curiously enough, the Blasters, significantly more expensive, contain only 20 cards compared to Hangers, which offer 30. Mega Boxes yield 60 cards per.

Here are the highlights from a Chronicles Draft Mega Box containing 12 packs with five cards per pack. Collectors can expect to pull eight Mega Box exclusive Playoff base cards and one exclusive Green Opti-Chrome parallel.

Overall, a fun product to open. Retail shelves seem well-stocked so tracking some down shouldn’t be a problem. Also, pulling an autograph, though it’s not a major name, was a surprise as signatures are not guaranteed. The exclusive Opti-Chrome Green cards look quite good.

Consider Chronicles Draft a decent present-day dalliance for collectors eagerly awaiting the first product containing the new rookie crop in pro uniforms.
