One of the greatest things about any holiday season is our penchant for sticking steadfastly to tried and true traditions that bring us joy, rekindle fond memories and make our seasonal celebrations so special every single year. So it is with Panini America’s annual Black Friday set.
Indeed, as we prepare to give thanks for our many blessings this Thanksgiving (mindful to eat enough so that it sustains us for the next day’s Black Friday phenomenon), there’s something comforting — and highly collectible — about the memorabilia cards that have become a bona fide Black Friday tradition.
To be sure, Panini America’s 2019 Black Friday memorabilia lineup promises to be every bit as eclectic, endearing and in-demand as the iterations that have come before, incorporating jerseys worn by the Basketball Hall of Fame’s newest inductees, sweat-soaked towels used during the NBA Rookie Photo Shoot, player-worn Santa hats just in time for the holidays and much more.
The following gallery provides a detailed and delightful exploration of some of the cards mentioned above. Just in case you missed it, here’s our preview from last week of the 2019 Black Friday base set parallels. We’ll follow up soon on The Knight’s Lance with a preview gallery devoted exclusively to the 2019 Black Friday set’s autograph inclusions.
Until then, enjoy . . .
