The Top 25 Basketball Card Products heading into 2019-20 | What Luka Doncic can teach us about Zion Williamson | Invest in the right products!

8

You’ve found it! The epicenter of data for 2019-20 Panini Basketball Card Products. This report breaks down all of the 2018-19 Basketball products (through 10/9/19) to help you understand which performed the best, have the most upside, and carried the most excitement. All of this with the idea of helping you enter 2019-20 with a clear awareness of the right Basketball card products to chase!! Let’s dig into the data.

The Reality

2019-20 is going to be a banner year for Basketball Cards. Zion Williamson is transforming the way everyone approaches basketball cards because NO ONE wants to be left behind. So there will be a mad frenzy for just about every product that Panini rolls out in 2019 and 2020. But, this doesn’t mean each of these products has a history of performing well NOR does it mean that Zion can save poorly received products. The marketplace ultimately determines which products are worth more than others.

This is how we’ve approached this report. We look back and help you understand how the marketplace has perceived various basketball card products. We do this by looking at how collectors spent their money! “Put your money where your mouth is….” this is the mindset as we break down the data from the last 365 days of transactions.

 

HOW THIS WORKS?

What we’ve done is bring together multiple sets of data to help paint a clear picture of the landscape of 2018 Football Card products. We’ve brought together the following data points in once complete view:

  • SEALED BOX: Factory Price (at price), Current Market Price, Interest within Market
  • SINGLE CARDS: Volume of Sales, Highest Sale Prices, and Average Price per Card. 
  • BREAK PRICES: Averages per month

All of these help us boil down the data into three individual rankings per product.

#1. WAX MOVEMENT | How much has the sealed box prices shifted since release?

#2: MARKET INTEREST | How does the transaction volume compare to the rest of the products?

#3: AVERAGE PRICE PER CARD | How does the average price per card look in comparison to box prices? 

#4: UPSIDE | How does the product compare in upside versus the rest of the market.

We then take these 3 and give you an overall score…which we break down into the TOP 25 products of the year.

Overall you’ll get a picture of the products that likely give you the most bang for your buck within the product range…and hopefully provide you with a good grasp on what the market expects from certain products. But before we dive in let me preface some of the realities of the market.

  • Manufacturers don’t create products equal year over year. Just because a product was dominant one year, doesn’t mean it will produce the same results the following year. But, in many cases history is a great indicator of the future.
  • Player performances and draft classes play a huge role in the success of many products. Rookie dominant products with a poor draft class will likely have a tough year. Veteran dominant products with the inclusion of top-name autos will probably end up doing better than normal. Etc….
  • This is a guide… not the law. Please understand the idea here is to help educate you with facts – like everything we do on BreakerCulture. But you should ultimately walk-away knowing that this meant to be a guide to help give you another edge in the marketplace. It’s not perfect and definitely not guaranteed to be indicative of pricing of future products.

OVERALL SURPRISES

 

BAD | 2018 Panini Spectra Basketball

Overall Rank: 22nd out of 25th

This one is really unfortunate to me. It’s one of the most eye-pleasing releases each year but it just can’t seem to figure out how to hold value.

 

BAD | 2018-19 Panini Noir Basketball

Overall Rank: 21st out of 25

This one is interesting because it’s a highly engaging product. Lots of volume….. but the avg $ per card + upside is absolutely awful.

 

GOOD | 2018-19 Panini Court Kings Basketball | FIND SINGLES HERE!

Overall Rank: 16th out of 25

I’m impressed. It’s partly because Shani has fallen in love with a product that isn’t so bad after all. It’s also because I can’t believe this art-driven product is NOT in the bottom half! This is a great spot for this product.
