What's in the Box: 21-22 Panini National Treasures Basketball

July 20, 2022

Another week of quality releases is upon us, but none may be more worthy of the What's in the Box breakdown than 21-22 Panini National Treasures Basketball. National Treasures is always one of the more anticipated releases in the sports card community. With its abundance of riches in potential hits, it's only right we get down to what will be featured in this year's release.

What to Expect:

  • Cards per pack: 10

  • Packs per box: 1

  • Boxes per case: 4


While there is a base card set in National Treasures, it doesn't dominate the hobby box like in most releases. Instead, you'll find one base card or base parallel in each box, but the value is still there if you were to land a quality player like a rookie Josh Giddey or a big-time veteran name. 


For those new to Panini National Treasures, autographs and memorabilia inserts have been the focus for years, and nothing changes this year. There are four autos in each box, along with four memorabilia inserts in each box. 

Ink-only inserts like Peerless and Penmanship dawn the league's elite players like NBA Finals MVP Steph Curry and the young phenom in Luka Doncic (both pictured below). However, Treasures of the Hall is for those who are chasing a blast to the past featuring the greatest players in NBA history. 

There are also some new auto inserts to look forward to with Dual and Triple Autographs


One of the National Treasures highlights is the Rookie Patch Autograph set. The RPAs feature the league's brightest newcomers like Jalen Green, Cade Cunningham, and Evan Mobley in Rookie Patch AutographsRookie Patch Autographs Logoman, and Rookie Material Autographs.

However, the rookies aren't the only ones getting patches. Treasured TagsColossal, and Colossal Logoman feature some of our favorite veteran players who are ascending to greatness like Ja Morant, or have been sustaining their excellence for years like Giannis Antetokounmpo. 

But there's even more, to look forward to with prime and super prime memorabilia inserts like Laundry TagsTeam Logos, and the 1 of 1 Logoman. There is a new addition with Treasure Chest Booklet dedicated to the NBA's superstar class. 

That's all we got for you in this one, but I'm sure that's all you need to dive into this product loaded with massive hits. And now, with Hit, Snap, Share, when you share your hits with us on social media, not only can we celebrate your big hits with you, but you can also potentially win $100 in credits to go towards your next purchase.
