Panini’s 2016 National Treasures Basketball arrives just as the NBA season heads toward the finish line.
While some of the jerseys worn by players in the NBA Finals each year are sold via NBA Auctions, Panini has apparently acquired at least one set. The company says 2015-16 National Treasures will include cards featuring full letters from jersey nameplates worn during last year’s Finals.
Other highlights to look for:
- USA Basketball memorabilia cards featuring jersey swatches worn during USA Basketball competition.
- Rookie Patch Autographs. Among the year’s most sought after cars, the rookie patch autos will have base versions numbered to 99 or 49 and four parallel versions: Silver numbered to 25, Gold numbered to 10, Emerald numbered to five and Logoman 1/1s.
- Patches. National Treasures showcases veterans, legends and rookies with the famous patch logo found on all NBA jerseys embedded.
- Material Treasures. Stars from the past and present with material from game jerseys.
- Treasured Tags. Cards featuring interior tags from game-worn NBA gear.
- International Treasures. This subset features NBA players who hail from other countries.
- Each case of 2015-16 National Treasures Basketball will now contain four boxes.
