CARDBOARD REVIEW:2019-2020 Certified Basketball (Big Hit!!)

Basketball cards are really hot this season with this explosive rookie class. I can't remember a time since the 90's that basketball cards have been talked about as much as they have. It's good to see especially since there are no NBA autographs on the market of MJ or LeBron since Upper Deck owns their rights.

One of my favorite football products has been long term staple in the basketball world as well in Certified. I have always liked the appeal.

I didn't get to bust any Certified football this year unfortunately, but I did do a basketball break and it was well worth it. Let's check out the hits I pulled...

In every box of 2019-2020 Certified Basketball, there are 10 packs of 5 cards each. Each box comes with two autographs, used to be four hits I believe, and boxes currently run a little steep at $130. That's what a strong rookie class will do for you.

BASE:
There are 200 cards in the main base set with 150 of them being veteran players. It was odd not to see the legends in it anymore.

There are also 50 rookies as well that makes up the tail end of the base set. I haven't had much luck this year in finding Zion like many others have.

PARALLELS:
Here is an overall look at the parallel cards you can find in this years Certified,
Blue, Red, Orange /99, Camo /25, Gold /10, Green /5, and Black 1/1





 Mirror Blue, RJ Barrett!!!!!

Mirror Red

Mirror Orange /99

INSERTS:
Most inserts have the following parallels,
Camo /25, Gold /10, Green /5, and Black 1/1.

Raise The Banner has 30 celebration cards

 Certified Gold Team, these are golden shine, with 30 cards to collect

And these beauties with 30 to collect. I really like these a lot. Takes me back to the 90's.

HITS
 Freshman Fabric autograph jersey

Rookie Roll Call camo parallel /25!! NIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIICCCEE.

Other hits not found in my box but could be in yours are,
  • Ballot Busters Autographs
  • Certified Signatures
  • Established Autographs
  • Fabric of the Game Signatures Red
  • Fresh Faces Signatures
  • Legendary Signatures
OVERALL THOUGHTS:
Well obviously this was a solid box, not all boxes may be this good but it's all apart of the hobby gamble.  I do like the designs throughout the product and may be one of the better looking Certified products I have seen in awhile.

Box price is steep for two hits, but if you sit and wait a bit it may drop. Another great thing about this product is the strong veteran content it has as well as it doesn't just rely on rookie content like a lot of products. That's the kind of products I like.

Wanna use a breaker, I strongly recommend using Midwest Box Breaks for your breaking needs. They are always hitting the big pulls so if they are breaking this, you could put yourself in a good spot. They also SHIP ALL CARDS! Get what you pay for!

SAVE 10% on your next break with Midwest!! Just use code SCCBLOG to do so. Don't miss out on those big hits any longer! Code ends at the end of the year!

Please thank Panini America and Tracy Hackler for providing this box for me to review to giveaway Autographs, some of the hits in a BIG CHRISTMAS GIVEAWAY coming up soon!!! Please follow them on all social media sites and visit their website for all your card needs, HERE.
