Mixing NBA and NCAA images, 2018-19 Panini Contenders Draft Picks Basketball offers an early look at some of the biggest rookies from the 2018 NBA Draft class.
Falling one per pack, each Hobby box averages six autographs in total.
2018-19 Panini Contenders Draft Picks Basketball Base / Inserts
Maintaining the basic set layout from 2017-18, the 2018-19 Panini Contenders Draft Picks Basketball checklist begins with 50 current and former NBA stars in the Season Ticket set. These players also have image Variations that fall at the same rate as the base cards with 35 of each expected per box.
Inserts combine to fall five per pack and 30 per box.
2018-19 Contenders Draft Picks Basketball Ticket Autographs
The remainder of the primary set consists of the autographed Ticket cards, including College Ticket and International Ticket cards.
However, the RPS College Ticket subset is likely to see the most attention as the cards are hard-signed and each player has three image variations.
In addition, the Ticket cards are issued in low-numbered Draft Ticket (#/99), Cracked Ice Ticket (#/23), Playoff Ticket (#/15), Championship Ticket (1/1), and Printing Plate (1/1) editions.
2018-19 Panini Contenders Draft Picks Basketball Autographs
While the rookies and Ticket cards take much of the focus, 2018-19 Panini Contenders Draft Picks Basketball also provides more signatures to hunt down. Displaying a collegiate image and NBA image for one player, Legacy Signatures highlights NBA players of past and present. Turning Pro takes a similar approach.
The Collegiate Connections Signatures set puts two players from the same school on one card with autographs for both.
