Unearth Shiny Gems Inside Panini’s 2023-24 Obsidian Basketball

May 31, 2024

Obsidian (the rock) is a dense type of volcanic glass that occurs when lava is cooled very rapidly, resulting in a deep, shiny black igneous stone. Obsidian (the NBA trading card box) is your key to securing some of the most explosive basketball cards of the year.

Intrigued yet? Well, you should be. Rocks may not be your thing, but if you’re reading this blog post, then you’re probably interested in trading cards. In that case, let’s dig into all that 2023-24 Panini Obsidian Basketball has to offer, from everything that is shiny and new to the stuff that is tried and true.

Some of the biggest chase components of this release are the brand-new and super short-printed Black Color Blast, the short-printed Vitreous and Volcanix inserts, as well as the Mist insert. These new sets are waiting to fall into your hands and make an enticing addition to your collection.

For those of you who love collecting relics from your favorite players, there will also be a wide variety of that available in the new Unbreakable Memorabilia, Eclipse Materials, Cutting Edge Memorabilia and Equinox Gear sets.

You’ll also want to look out for autograph sets such as Rookie Jersey Autographs, Rookie Jersey Ink and Rookie Eruption Autographs, as well as Matrix Material Autos, Magmatic Signatures, Galaxy Ink, Volcanic Signatures and the brand-new Twilight Signatures. In those inserts, you’ll find autographs from rookies, stars, and retired legends such as Amen Thompson, Ausar Thompson, Brandin Podziemski, Paolo Banchero, Stephen Curry, Ja Morant and Zion Williamson.

So yeah, you’ll want to keep an eye out for Obsidian (the trading card box) when it drops. You can also hunt around for the rock version, if you want, but we definitely think Panini’s version is more up your alley.
