No matter the reason you collect trading cards — the exclusivity, the value, the autographs from your favorite players — you won’t want to miss the 2023-24 Panini Donruss NBA Trading Card Box: It has something for everybody.
If your current obsession is the league’s newcomers, then the iconic Rated Rookies program has exactly what you’ve been looking for. Pick up cards of standout newcomers like Amen and Ausar Thompson, Bilal Coulibaly, Cason Wallace, Keyonte George and more. Chase after both the base/parallel and autograph versions of your favorite greenhorns and fulfill all your collecting needs. You’ll have the chance to grab the exclusive Base and Base Rated Rookies inserts that come in Press Proof Silver Die-Cut (numbered to 75) and Gold Die-Cut (numbered to 25).
New to the hobby box is the Next Day Autographs set, found in both hobby and choice SKUs. The set has plenty of popular on-card rookie autographs — signed at the 2023 NBA Rookie Photo Shoot — the players’ first hard-signed NBA uniform cards. You can even find ultra-rare inscriptions on the Next Day Autograph cards, making them even more appealing.
Also included in the box is the brand-new Next Day insert cards — unsigned versions of the Next Day Autograph set for a handful of rookies. You’ll have to hunt diligently to collect them all, as they’re randomly inserted into hobby boxes.
If NBA superstars are more your speed, you’ll be able to collect special iterations of the new Holo Laser parallel inserts — numbered to 99 — including Retro Series, Crunch Time, Unleashed, Hardwood Masters, Zero Gravity and Net Marvels. Round up cards of Stephen Curry, Anthony Edwards, Zion Williamson and more with each box you pick up.
The final newcomers to the Donruss Trading Card Box are the Fadeaway and Playmakers inserts — both are SSP inserts that will fall randomly across various retail SKUs this year. You’ll have to do some rigorous searching to find all the star players represented in this set.
So, go ahead and get ready. With something to spark the interest of every hoops enthusiast, you’ll want to get your hands on the 2023-24 Panini Donruss NBA Trading Card Box as soon as you can. If you wait too long, it’s sure to slip through your fingertips.
