For collectors who prefer their cards to mimic art, 2021-22 Panini Court Kings will have its regular engagement later this spring.
With a splashy, colorful look, Court Kings is one of the more distinctive sets Panini produces each year. It’s also among the more affordable lines.
Each box will have one pack with ten cards per pack. Most will have one autograph, one memorabilia card, one rookie card, two inserts, one parallel and four base cards. Each rookie will have four different style base cards as once again, Court Kings will present them in four tiers (I, II, III and IV with the latter being the toughest to pull).
The autograph checklist will include a mix of rookies, veterans and retired stars. They’ll be branded Holding Court Signatures, Brush Strokes, Impressionist Ink, Fresh Paint, Heir Apparent, and Legacy Portrait Signatures.
Insert sets include First Steps, Works in Progress and Maestros but there will be some super-short printed inserts to look for, too, including the new State of the Art (utilizing a background outline of the state of a player’s team), Aurora and Le Cinque Piu Belle.
The SRP in 2021-22 Panini Court Kings is $150 but in the current market, you can probably expect to pay a bit more.
