It’s colorful. It’s charismatic. It’s creative. It’s captivating. It, of course, is Panini America’s art-inspired Court Kings Basketball franchise — and when it arrives for the 2018-19 season in early April, it will do so with some bold new twists sure to elevate the brand to even higher heights. For starters, hobby boxes  (10 cards per box, 16 boxes per case) will deliver, on average, two autographs this year as well as two Rookie Cards, two inserts and one parallel.

Like the Court Kings creations that have come before, 2018-19 Court Kings Basketball will deliver some of the most visually stunning designs of the year and the four unique Rookie Card tiers per player that become increasingly rare.

The highlights of 2018-19 Court Kings Basketball are many and include . . .

  • On-card autographs in Fresh Paint, Heir Apparent and Legacies Signatures. All on-card autographs are limited to 199 or less. Find members of the 2018-19 NBA Rookie Class in Fresh Paint and Heir Apparent and some of the NBA’s all-time bests in Legacies Signatures — including Kobe Bryant, Reggie Miller and Bill Russell. Find Sapphire versions numbered to 25 or less and Masterpiece 1/1 versions.
  • Short-printed insert cards in Aurora, Le Cinque Piu Belle and Gallery of Stars. Aurora, Le Cinque Pui Belle and Gallery of Stars combine to fall even fewer than one per case!
  • Collect four of the most unique Rookie Cards of the year in Rookies I through IV, where each version is more scarce than the previous, culminating in the super short-printed Rookies IV.

We’ll have plenty more on 2018-19 Court Kings Basketball in the coming weeks right here on The Knight’s Lance in the coming weeks. But for now, here’s an extended sneak peek, including a look at some of the retail-exclusive inclusions:
