Year after year, Panini America’s Prizm Basketball just keeps on delivering some of the most highly desirable Rookie Cards in the Hobby. This is not only reflected in the price of the Rookie Cards but also reflected in the selling prices of the Hobby boxes.  

After six years of continued excellence, the Prizm brand across all sports is a bona fide Panini America cornerstone; but there’s just something about Prizm Basketball that seems to resonate just a little bit more resoundingly. It’s a simple formula — action photography, lots of color parallels and designs created specifically to take advantage of the Optichrome technology — that consistently nets high returns. It’s been that way since the product first arrived during the 2012-13 NBA season. It’ll be that way again this Wednesday at Sports Cards Plus, a.k.a. The Super Hit Factory when the heavily anticipated 2018-19 Prizm Basketball arrives.


The rainbow array of Prizm parallels returns, including the wildly popular Silver Prizms — or “Silvers” — of key rookies such as DeAndre Ayton, Luka Doncic, Mo Bamba and more. On average, each hobby box of 2018-19 Prizm Basketball (12 cards per pack, 12 packs per box, 12 boxes per case) will deliver two autographs and 22 Prizm parallels.

Additional highlights of 2018-19 Prizm Basketball include . . .
  • Autographs from rookies, veterans and all-time NBA Greats in Signatures, Rookie Signatures and Sensational Signatures. Each has a Mojo Prizm version, a Gold Prizmversion numbered to 10 and a Black Prizm 1/1 version.

  • A new roster of inserts including Fireworks, Luck of the Lottery, All Day, Go Hard or Go Home and That’s Savage.

  • A 300-card base set featuring Prizm parallels numbered from 299 all the way down to one.

  • 2018-19 Prizm Basketball also includes one of its most robust retail-exclusive offerings ever with exclusive Prizm parallel content for each retail SKU and the retail-wide Green Prizms.

2018-19 PANINI CERTIFIED BASKETBALL ($94 per box) ARRIVES WEDNESDAY AT SPORTS CARDS PLUS


Panini America's venerable Certified franchise has been a trading card staple in football for many years, but it’s been done in basketball only once, during the 2009-10 NBA season. In the years since, any Certified Basketball product has included the “Totally” modifier. But on Wednesday, Certified Basketball makes a triumphant return to the marketplace with a stacked 2018-19 edition going back to its roots and boasting the fabled Mirror parallels, an array of hard-signed autograph inserts and more.

On average, each hobby box of 2018-19 Certified Basketball (five cards per pack, 10 packs per box, 12 boxes per case) will deliver two autographs, one memorabilia card, 10 inserts and seven parallels. Among the most sought after of Certified’s autograph inclusions promise to be the hard-signed Rookie Roll Call and Certified Potential chases featuring the stars of the 2018 NBA Draft Class.

There’s also a hard-signed 10th Anniversary set that includes 10 superstar players on cards numbered to 15 or less. The checklist includes Kobe Bryant, Charles Barkley, Shaquille O’Neal, Bill Russell, Kevin Durant, Stephen Curry, Reggie Miller, Allen Iverson, Damian Lillard and Kyrie Irving.

In terms of the Mirror parallel structure, there are unnumbered base Mirror parallels as well as Mirror Red (numbered to 299), Mirror Blue (numbered to 199), Mirror Orange (numbered to 99), Mirror Purple (numbered to 49), Mirror Gold (numbered to 10), Mirror Green (numbered to five) and Mirror Black 1/1 versions.


Set to arrive at Sports Cards Plus on Wednesday, November 14th, each hobby box of 2018-19 Certified Basketball (five cards per pack, 10 packs per box, 12 boxes per case) will deliver, on average, two autographs, one memorabilia card, 10 inserts and seven parallels. Among the most sought after of Certified’s autograph inclusions promise to be the hard-signed Rookie Roll Call and Certified Potential chases featuring the stars of the 2018 NBA Draft Class.

Additional highlights of 2018-19 Certified Basketball include . . .
  • A celebration of Panini America’s 10th NBA anniversary with an autograph insert featuring the league’s top stars and legends.

  • Rookie Jersey Autographs in the Freshman Fabric Signatures chase that includes Prime parallels.

  • SP inserts in Gold Team, The Mighty and Priority Mail.

  • Autographs and memorabilia from the present and future stars of the NBA.

THE SPORTS CARDS PLUS "VETERANS DAY WEEK LONG SALE" MEANS SAVINGS FOR EVERYONE AND FREE PACKS FOR ALL VETS & ACTIVE DUTY MILITARY

Take time to say, "Thanks for your service" to a Military Veteran and active duty Military today and every time you meet one.  

The general public view of our Military was different in the late 1960s and early 1970s, when Vietnam Vets were looked down on and ridiculed.  They deserve a special thanks for doing their duty when it was not popular. Click on picture above to see a Foxnews story.

As a small token of our appreciation, each Veteran and current active duty Military will get a Panini VIP Gold Pack ($17 value) just for visiting Sports Cards Plus this week.  I only have a limited number of these packs, so it is just one per Vet or active duty Military.

In their honor, we are holding a "Veterans Day Week Long Sale."  Prices are slashed throughout the store.  Here's a sample:
