Panini Touts Mavericks Championship Card Set

It helps when the NBA champions live in your backyard.

Panini workers zipped over to the Dallas Mavericks victory parade on Thursday, armed with flyers promoting the company’s new NBA championship trading cards.   Like their rivals at Upper Deck, who announced plans for a Boston Bruins championship set, Panini will create a special set honoring the new champs of pro hoops.

The limited-edition 36-card Dallas Mavericks: NBA Champions boxed set includes:

  • One card for every player on the 2010-11  roster
  • Cards for each of the Mavs’ 16 Playoff victories, including game-specific photography from key moments
  • A special card devoted to Dallas head coach Rick Carlisle, his first trading card in more than five years
  • A special card honoring NBA Finals MVP Dirk Nowitzki
The sets are being sold now via pre-order and are priced at $20.
