Panini America Examines Chinese New Year Memorabilia in 2014-15 Noir Basketball
Panini America’s highly anticipated 2014-15 Noir Basketball released this week with a predominantly international distribution plan, packing within its elegant black boxes two truly unique inserts with deep roots overseas. The China Jerseys and China Jerseys Patches inserts feature pieces of special jerseys worn by some of the NBA’s biggest superstars during last season’s Chinese New Year Celebration games in February and March.
Every card in both sets (China Jerseys is numbered to 99, China Jerseys Patches is numbered to 25) features an oversized piece of the special Chinese New Year game-worn jerseys on the front and the exact date the jersey was worn on the back.
To be sure, it’s a compelling and rare inclusion in the debut edition of Noir Basketball and features the likes of Stephen Curry, Andre Iguodala, James Harden and more. In the gallery that follows, we showcase some of the cards in the set simply for your viewing pleasure.
