More current and former pro athletes are taking an interest in sports cards. Earlier this week, Milwaukee Bucks forward Thanasis Antetokounmpo, the older brother and teammate of two-time reigning NBA MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo, bought 16 packs in Just Rip It’s box break of 2013-14 Panini basketball cards and pulled…a Giannis rookie card.
It turns out Thanasis was also watching the break live and dropped some “fire” emojis in the live comments during the break.
He’s been a sparkplug off the Bucks’ bench this year, bringing his own brand of high energy to the court. Just Rip It’s Charlie Parrino says it was Thannis’ first purchase.
Just Rip It breaks a mix of vintage and modern era packs on its shows. The next one airs Saturday night at 6:30 PM Eastern time.
Panini America’s Mark Warsop visits with Yahoo Finance for a chat about the company and how it’s dealing with the massive buying that’s happening in the current market.
30 With Murti, a show on WFAN Radio in New York, chatted with John Odell, Curator of History and Research at the Baseball Hall of Fame about the seismic shift in baseball cards that happened decades ago and what’s happened since. Listen below (there’s a one-minute commercial at the beginning).
