High-end higher-education hoops hobbyists have never had an opportunity quite like the one that arrives in mid November with the release of Panini America’s 2018 Flawless Collegiate Basketball. Well, they had an opportunity a little like this last year when the Flawless brand delivered its first standalone Collegiate Basketball edition. But that initial offering didn’t include the incomparable Charles Barkley running the court way back in his Auburn days. This one does. It’s also got an extensive autograph and memorabilia checklist stacked with All-Americans and all-time legends.

2018 Flawless Collegiate Basketball features on-card autographs from all of the top 2018 NBA rookies in the Rookie Patch Autographs chase. In fact, every autograph in the product will either be hard-signed or a cut signature numbered to 25 or less. On average, each briefcase of 2018 Flawless Collegiate Basketball (10 cards per briefcase, two briefcases per case) will deliver six autographs, two memorabilia cards and two gemstone cards.
