Big Early Treasure from 2018-19 National Treasures Basketball – Beckett Pricing Insider
One of the most anticipated products of the year, 2018-19 Panini National Treasures Basketball dropped on April 26, returning with a bevy of Rookie Patch Autographs, veteran signatures, and memorabilia cards. Hobby boxes contain ten cards, including eight autograph and/or memorabilia cards, one printing plate, and a base card or parallel.
Here are three interesting sales from the market activity thus far:
2018-19 Panini National Treasures #127 Luka Doncic JSY AU RC /99 – $12,000
Collectors have certainly been looking forward to this card, speculating about possible sales prices. Those predicting values of $10,000-plus right out of the gate were correct, as several transactions have exceeded that mark, including this top sale (as of this writing) of $12,000.
2018-19 Panini National Treasures Rookie Patch Autographs Logoman #121 Shai Gilgeous-Alexander 1/1 – $8,500
The sharp-looking, one-of-one Logoman parallels are the toughest RPAs to come by. This particular version featuring the Clippers promising point guard is one of the few to emerge on the market so far. Gilgeous-Alexander performed well in Los Angeles’ valiant first-round effort against defending champ Golden State.
2018-19 Panini National Treasures NBA Finals Nameplate #11 Stephen Curry /5 – $5,100
Among the most desirable of the memorabilia insert sets, the NBA Finals Nameplates feature full letters from the backs of jerseys worn in the 2018 Finals by the likes of Curry, Kevin Durant, and LeBron James. Golden State is looking strong at the moment as they try for a fifth straight Finals appearance.
