I'm calling it now... There is no way in hell (unless they don't announce it ahead of time) that the release of this product doesn't break their website.

Not really.
NT way more expansive and WC comes around every 4 years.

Basketballs popularity is really overrated, it can't even outsell hockey.
Lonzo Ball NT RPA /99 would have to be $20k-$30k out of the gate in order to be just a tad better than hockey hyped RPA's

Exactly, and his RPA from Hockeys best product sells less than what a Lonzo would.

I haven't looked in a while, but I don't think this is true.

You aren't looking at the right one though, that's an Exquisite parallel.


This is his true Cup RPA.

You're taking one card and using it to make a generalizing statement about the popularity of two hobbies.

I think hockey card prices are more of a reflection of the supply more than it is the popularity of the hobby. I think Panini just scales their supply to match the popularity of the NBA hobby, and it just results in an oversaturated market. I think we had close to 30 products last year alone, probably 40 if you include LEAF/UD/non-licensed stuff. I think hockey had around 10-15.

More importantly basketball's market is strongest in 90s inserts/Exquisites/MJs/Lebrons so our NT RPA is not a good way to measure the popularity of the NBA hobby. Trust me, look up some of those prices and get back to me

Can you post a screenshot or anything for verification. I heard this from David from PlatinumCardBreaks as well. Just talked to Matt from B/O, he still says its May 2nd.

Can you imagine if FOTL came out the Wednesday the national started. The internet would go out.

It would make sense that they delay this again to get more live autographs of the top rookies. If you look at Optic on-card autos that are redemptions then I would assume NT will basically have the same redemptions. Here are a few of the bigger rookie redemptions in Optic (which we would assume these redemptions would be in NT too)

Donovan Mitchell
Dennis Smith Jr
Kyle Kuzma
Josh Jackson
Jordan Bell
OG Anunoby
Bam Adebayo

I have been looking for information regarding a 2nd delay and haven't been able to confirm. I"ll tweet Panini shortly about it.

Would it only be available at the National first? Now, that would create a frenzy.

Now it says May 4th on Blowout so guessing not a huge delay, but who knows.
