What is it that makes the Noir Basketball release so popular? Is it that all autographs are on-card? Is it the ever sought after Spotlight Signatures set? Is it the art nuoveau styling of the release and the myriad of patch autographs? It’s safe to say it’s all of these things are what make this such a popular release for collectors and 2018-19 Panini Noir Basketball will not disappoint.
The 2018 NBA Rookie Class will get the full treatment in the release with plenty of Rookie Patch Autographs (RPAs), SP Inserts, Spotlight Signatures, numbered base and patches. The RPAs will once again be available in colour and black & white variations, as well as the tag autograph version which are always one of the most desirable hits of the release.
Veterans and legends will also feature heavily in this high end release none more so than in the Spotlight Signatures set, with both the vertical and horizontal variations returning in 2018-19. An exciting new addition is the Sneaker Spotlight set which will feature some of the best and brightest footwear of the NBA’s elite players.
Celebrating 10 years of Panini producing NBA cards had led to the inclusion of a special 10th Anniversary Signatures set, and the Feature Length, Split Screen, and Vintage Art metal frame inserts all numbered to 25 or less are likely to be the case hit for the release. Whilst the regular season may be over, the quality NBA releases are still coming and Noir is definitely a favourite for most dedicated collectors.
