Panini prepares NBA Finals promotion



By Stephen Laroche | Beckett Basketball Editor

While basketball fans around the world prepare to watch the opening game of the 2015 NBA Finals between the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Golden State Warriors, collectors will be able to enjoy a special bonus courtesy of Panini America in the form of special promotional packs that will contain some seriously limited autographed cards.

Those that make a qualifying purchase on will receive a one-card pack for every $100 spent on the site and every card inside is numbered to 25 copies or less. Some of them will be one-of-one HyperPlaid parallels which could prove to be very popular on the secondary market. The roster of signers includes a strong mix of current stars, hot rookies and revered legends and they will only be available while supplies last.

What will you need to break to receive one of these packs? Look for an extensive gallery and find out more after the jump.


Collectors will need to purchase boxes of eligible products via Panini’s online store to get a pack and the roster includes several 2014-15 basketball releases in Gold Standard, Donruss, Totally Certified, Prizm, and NBA Hoops along with last season’s editions of Pinnacle and Timeless Treasures.

The largest of three sets created for this promotion is Private Signings, which features 59 different cards. The other two collections focus on this season’s freshman performers and Private Signings Rookies will bear a signature, the Rookie Signatures Materials are potentially even more appealing due to the presence of a piece of memorabilia. All of these cards are limited to 25 copies or less and they will have the previously mentioned HyperPlaid parallel version.
