2018-19 Panini Opulence Basketball Cards
The expensive NBA release with a penchant for gold returns via 2018-19 Panini Opulence Basketball.
Like the debut set in 2017-18, each hit-heavy Hobby box has seven autographs or relics. However, the total number of cards per box drops from 10 to eight.
2018-19 Panini Opulence Basketball Autographs / Relics
Leaving room for one non-hit card in each box, the 2018-19 Panini Opulence Basketball checklist is mainly about the on-card autographs, which are the norm across the release. In fact, every hard-signed card is also numbered to 99 or less.
Key NBA rookies like Luka Doncic and Trae Young get their RPA coverage in the main Rookie Patch Autographs set, with each card capped at 79 copies.
Other on-card choices include City of Gold, Luxurious Autographs and Opulent Scripts.
Adding a memorabilia swatch, the auto-relic selection features Gold Medal Jersey Autographs, for Team USA stars, and Precious Swatch Signatures.
Team USA Champions and Retired NBA Legends cards offer additional premium inserts.
The high-end set features relic cards, as well. Collectors can find Rookie Jersey cards for top '18-19 rookies.
2018-19 Panini Opulence Basketball Booklets
Arguably the most impressive among the 2018-19 Panini Opulence Basketball cards are the oversized versions, such as the NBA Finals Booklets. These have Brand Logo, Sponsor Logo, and NBA Logoman parallels.
There are also Rookie Patch Autograph Booklet cards to hunt down in the pricey product. Rare parallels include Nameplate, Brand Logo and Sponsor Logo.
Loading eight autographs on one card, the Rookie Octo Signature Booklet cards are packed with first-year talent.
According to Panini, "Opulence is the only place to find autograph and memorabilia booklets for the 2018-19 release year."
Estimated Release Date: June 26, 2019
Product Configuration: 8 cards per pack, 1 pack per box, 3 boxes per case
