Let’s face it: Some new-release weeks in the trading cards industry are just more action-packed than others. This, for the record, is one of those weeks as Panini America readies to launch 2019-20 Select Basketball, 2019 Encased Football and 2020 Donruss Baseball in hobby shops across North America on Wednesday. It’s a diverse array of products, each with its own unique value equation. We’ll spend the early part of this week previewing each of the products with must-see Quality Control Gallery posts, beginning with 2019-20 Select Basketball.
On average, each hobby box (five cards per packs, 12 packs per box, 12 boxes per case) will deliver three autograph or memorabilia cards, 10 Premier Level base cards, two Courtside base cards and 12 Prizm parallels. Get additional product highlights and the extensive preview gallery after the jump.
Product highlights include . . .
- Some of the most unique Prizms of the year including Tie-Dye, Tri-Color and Zebra.
- Collect all three tiers of the base set along with Prizm parallels for each (Concourse, Premier Level and Courtside).
