Panini will release its 2009-2010 National Treasures basketball product on August 4, with eight cards per pack and a $400 per box price tag.
The company released a number of images from cards in the set on Tuesday.
Among the more sought after and unusual signed cards in National Treasures are the Notable Nicknames; cards autographed by stars of the past and present NBA. Somehow, Panini convinced 22 current and former players to add their nicknames below their signature.
The typically modest Jerry West signs “Mr. Clutch”, Larry Bird was apparently OK with “Larry Legend” and Bill Walton agreed to “The Big Redhead”.
Combo signature cards, logo man patch cards and other favorites return.
