Panini is riding a wave of recent NBA success. Here’s more from them:
Panini’s NBA rookies last year outperformed its NFL first-year players; and, there’s a trend of younger collectors toward basketball. Looking at the Beckett’s price guide, same product/same price point, the two top-selling NFL rookie cards last season were Marcus Mariota and Todd Gurley ($500; $400). In comparison, the two top-selling NBA rookie cards were Karl Anthony Towns and Kristaps Porzingas ($3,500; $2,000).
