The product’s additional highlights include . . .
- The striking new AU on-card autograph insert featuring an etched-foil design and numbering to just 79.
- For the first time ever, every card in Gold Standard will be numbered.
- More variations as the set’s popular Team Variations have been joined by Photo Variations.
- The inclusion of more prime memorabilia pieces than ever before.
- New autograph and memorabilia inserts highlighted by Good as Gold (autograph memorabilia cards featuring Prime and Platinum parallels), and Newly Minted Memorabilia Duals featuring the NBA’s top rookies.
- The return of real gold with the landmark Solid Gold 1/1s and Freshly Minted gold-disc cards numbered to just 20.
