Panini America 2018 Contenders Draft Picks Basketball Trae Young

In late August, a bold, new basketball collecting season begins — as it so often does — with the release of Panini America’s Contenders Draft Picks Basketball. Traditionally the first product of the year to feature the NBA’s newest members in all of their college glory, Contenders Draft Picks Basketball returns for the 2018 season to deliver the first hard-signed rookie autographs of the season with the chase-worthy RPS College Tickets.

On average, each hobby box of 2018 Contenders Draft Picks Basketball (18 cards per pack, six packs per box, 12 boxes per case) will deliver six autographs, one parallel, 35 base Season Tickets, 35 variation Season Tickets and 30 inserts. In Turning Pro Signatures look for autographs from top current and retired NBA players in both their college and NBA uniforms.

Additional highlights of 2018 Contenders Draft Picks Basketball include . . .

  • Autographs from this year’s top international prospects in the International Ticket set.
  • The popular College Tickets subset features autographs from the 2018 NBA Draft and includes numbered Draft Tickets, Playoff Tickets, Championship Tickets, Cracked Ice Tickets and Printing Plate parallels.
  • Legacy Signatures features autographs from former college standouts turned current/retired NBA stars.
  • A 50-card Season Ticket base set featuring current and retired NBA superstars.
  • The Collegiate Connection Signatures insert features dual signatures from either two prospects or one prospect and one NBA player from the same university.

We’ll have more on 2018 Contenders Draft Picks Basketball in the coming weeks. But until then, enjoy this extended sneak peek:
