2021-22 Panini Select Basketball Inserts

Panini Select Basketball Inserts are very similar to what we have seen in year’s past with the return of En Fuego, Unstoppable and Artistic Selections. These three all get somewhat of a face lift design-wise

However, there are other inserts to look out for and two notable ones include Select Future and Phenomenon. 

2021-22 Panini Select Basketball Hobby Autographs and Memorabilia

With 3 autograph and memorabilia cards in each hobby box of 2021-22 Panini Select Basketball, collectors can hunt for a variety of NBA veteran stars and rookies’ signatures and patch autos. 

With Rookie Jersey Autographs & Rookie Signatures, we will see some familiar faces from last year’s deep rookie class that includes Jalen Green, Scottie Barnes , Cade Cunningham, and Evan Mobley.

Despite a focus on the Rookie Jersey Autographs & Rookie Signatures, there are also ways to get veteran signatures as well. One of the notable ways is with In Flight, showcasing the NBA’s high flyers above the rim.
