It was a very Merry Christmas for one customer of Firehand Cards.
The online breaker opened a box of 2019-20 Panini Flawless Basketball on release day last Wednesday and out popped one of the primo cards in the pricey product: a 1/1 Zion Williamson rookie NBA Logoman patch that’s expected to fetch a hefty sum.

The lucky recipient had bought into the break of the $7,000-$8,000 per box product that comes in a briefcase, no doubt hoping he’d land some sort of Williamson card. Now, he stands to start the new year with a big time addition to his bank account.
The card’s owner reached out to Goldin Auctions on Christmas night and agreed to a consignment deal. Goldin, who has a nephew in Southern California, then arranged to have the card picked up from Firehand Cards on Sunday. It was submitted to PSA on Monday morning and graded by afternoon through its Premium Elite one-day service ($5,000). The card was given a Mint 9 rating.
Next, it’ll be winging its way to Goldin’s New Jersey offices and will be among the headliners in the company’s Elite Auction set to open around January 8.
The card is expected to sell for $750,000 or more.
