2019-20 @paniniamerica Noir Basketball released this week, and in my opinion it’s the best looking product out there. Of course, aesthetics don’t always correlate to value, so while it is a high-end release, the overall demand is lower than many other basketball investments. With that being said, Panini hit a home run last year when they added the “Sneaker Spotlight” set to the release. From last year’s set, the Trae Young’s Sneaker Spotlight RC Auto /99 increased 65% in value since it released last June.
This set is perfect for the new members of the hobby. It combines two extremely popular facets into one, with the sports cards and the sneakers. The 2019-20 set is a vertical card, which might appeal more to some collectors. In your opinion, are these some of the best rookie autos of a given player?
