Panini America Offers Detailed First Look at 2018-19 Certified Basketball (Preview)

September 12, 2018

Panini America 2018-19 Certified Basketball Main

The last (and only) time Panini America produced a standalone Certified Basketball product sans the “Totally” modifier, Stephen Curry had zero rings and zero threes, Blake Griffin had dunked over exactly zero Kias and James Harden’s beard was little more than a five o’clock shadow. It was February of 2010, to be exact, when 2009-10 Certified Basketball arrived. It hasn’t been back since. But that changes in a huge way later this fall with the release of 2018-19 Certified Basketball.

Set to arrive in hobby shops across North America in mid-November, each hobby box of 2018-19 Certified Basketball (five cards per pack, 10 packs per box, 12 boxes per case) will deliver, on average, two autographs, one memorabilia card, 10 inserts and seven parallels. Among the most sought after of Certified’s autograph inclusions promise to be the hard-signed Rookie Roll Call and Certified Potential chases featuring the stars of the 2018 NBA Draft Class.

Additional highlights of 2018-19 Certified Basketball include . . .

  • A celebration of Panini America’s 10th NBA anniversary with an autograph insert featuring the league’s top stars and legends.
  • Rookie Jersey Autographs in the Freshman Fabric Signatures chase that includes Prime parallels.
  • SP inserts in Gold Team, The Mighty and Priority Mail.
  • Autographs and memorabilia from the present and future stars of the NBA.

We’ll have a lot more to preview in the coming weeks right here on The Knight’s Lance. But until then, here’s an extended sneak peek:
