Chronicles gives you a look at cards across the Panini spectrum some of which never made it to the market. I've never seen these packs before so I was excited to pick up this pack of 2018-2019 Chronicles Basketball. This Karl-Anthony Towns card is one of three actual Chronicles cards you receive. It's a clean design which is growing on me. Autographs (including past greats) and relics are a possibility with Chronicles but I wasn't that lucky.
Again you'll get cards from across the Panini spectrum of basketball. These here include Essentials, Luminance and Elite. The non-Chronicles cards were all rookie cards. While not a bad thing it limits who you'll get in your pull. I didn't hit any big names but did pull some good names. I like the Luminance design. The other two are OK but don't excite me.
The Score and Playoff cards are some I've never seen and I don't think hit the market. The Playoff design is OK but that jersey Collin Sexton is wearing has to go. Maybe it was a summer league thing.
The Panini design is pretty boring but they do give you plenty of room for the photos and I like both of these. Needs a team logo as well. This was a fun pack due to the great variety and having no idea what I'd find. I would have liked seeing more veterans but that isn't the focus here. So if you like basketball cards I think these are worth taking a look at.
This Obsidian card is kind of cool. It's thicker than the average card and shiny which I know appeals to a lot of collectors.
