Product Details

User Rating:

Extending the '18-19 NBA collecting season a little more, 2018-19 Panini Contenders Optic Basketball debuts for fans of the hardcourt. Each box contains one autograph.

Initially an NFL release, Contenders Optic NBA works exactly as it sounds. The new set features the primary Contenders design with a chromium Optic finish.

2018-19 Panini Contenders Optic Basketball Base / Inserts

Although little else was revealed, the base Season Ticket cards and parallels should fill half of the six-card boxes.

Inserts (and parallels) take up two more spots in every 2018-19 Panini Contenders Optic Basketball box. Hall of Fame Contenders highlights likely HOF inductees, Playing the Numbers Game covers stat studs, and the Superstar insert displays a die-cut shape.

    waste of money – free agency making this set a joke this late in the year

    Over $100 a box for 1 auto and 6 total cards. I watched a 20 box case get opened and the non rookies (which was about 50% of autos) were all sticker autos.

    Did luka’s mom sign stickers for this set or did she hard sign them?

    I love this set. Boxes can be rough but I feel within 5 years these will be one of the most sought after rookie auto’s. On card, limited and the cards are solid quality.
