2018 Panini National Treasures Baseball CardsBrand: National Treasures
Now just one choice in a sea of premium releases, 2018 Panini National Treasures Baseball still carries clout with high-end collectors. The all-hit boxes feature eight autographs or relics with at least one being a booklet.
Just like 2017 had Aaron Judge, the 2018 product is buoyed by considerable rookie talent, including hard-signed (and live) Shohei Ohtani autographs across multiple sets.
2018 Panini National Treasures Baseball Autographs
The main rookie offering in the 2018 Panini National Treasures Baseball checklist is found in Rookie Material Signatures. Featuring an on-card signature and swatch piece, the lineup boasts top names such as Acuña, Albies, Hoskins, Ohtani, Soto and Torres.
Other RC options include Rookie Signatures and Rookie Triple Material Ink.
Also hard-signed, Signature Names Prime showcases a die-cut text relic specific to the player while Signature Jumbo Die-Cut Bat works with a player silhouette over a bat piece.
Touching on multiple decades of MLB greatness, additional signatures can be found in Century Materials Signatures, Game Gear Signatures, Hall of Fame Signatures, Player's Collection Signatures, Retro Signatures, Signature Names, Stars and Stripes Autographs, and Treasured Signatures.
2018 Panini National Treasures Baseball Memorabilia
Filling in the other part of the box hits are the various memorabilia cards. 2018 Panini National Treasures Baseball provides a new assortment of gear, including relic sets for Bat Nameplates, Cleats and ID Tags.
There are also Century Materials, Game Gear and Hall of Fame Materials cards to chase.
2018 Panini National Treasures Baseball Booklets
Averaging one per box, the most visually impressive collectibles in 2018 Panini National Treasures Baseball might just be the multi-panel booklets. Mixing in either autographs, relics, or both, these devote a lot of space to one player or more.
Legendary Lineups is a franchise-based insert with nine different player relics on the tri-panel booklet.
There is also the dual-panel NT Signature Material Booklet with a quality swatch joining the on-card autograph for key prospects and star players.
However, from the standpoint of baseball history, nothing can match the one-of-one Babe Ruth / Lou Gehrig Cut Signature Booklet.
Other book cards include Franchise Lineups, New York Row and Rookie Signature Jumbo Material Booklet, plus Quad Signatures and Six Signatures.
