Panini America Provides a Quick Guide to Short-Printed Base Variations in 2019-20 Spectra Basketball

July 01, 2020

The highly anticipated hobby edition of Panini America’s new 2019-20 Spectra Basketball released today and astute collectors already have discovered one simple truth about the product’s base set: There are short-printed variations for several key veterans and rookies. In fact, there are 25 cards on the checklist with variations — 13 veterans and 12 rookies.

Perhaps the most important question as it relates to the variations: How much shorter are they than their base counterparts? Let’s just say they’re almost three times tougher to pull than the regular base cards. We offer a quick reference to the Variation SPs below.
