The NBA’s longest season will include a trading card set honoring the team that persevered through all 12 months to take home the title. Panini America will produce a 30-card Lakers championship boxed set that’s already being offered on pre-order.
Much like similar sets issued in the past, the set comes in a blaster style box. There are no autograph cards possible, but the price is a fairly reasonable (at least in the current market) $29.99, with multiple cards of LeBron James.
The set will include eight highlight cards, 15 cards of individual players holding the Larry O’Brien trophy, another of coach Frank Vogel, three celebration cards, one team logo, one team image and another commemorating James as MVP.
The 2019-20 Lakers captured the 17th NBA title in franchise history Sunday night, knocking out the Miami heat four games to two. The 35-year-old James earned his fourth Finals MVP award and has now won titles with three different teams during his career.
As of now, the sets available at SportsMemorabilia.com with delivery expected no later than the end of next month.
All Lakers championship memorabilia has been scorching hot, according to online retailers as collectors and fans around the world celebrate the team’s first title since 2010.
