Random Wax: 2020-2021 Contenders Draft Picks Basketball

2020-2021 Contenders Draft Picks: Still have a few of these packs from last year to show off so let's knock one out.  Jimmy Butler has been in and out of the lineup for the resurgent Heat but he is having another good year in Miami.
No complaints with my pull.  Love seeing these old photos.  Can't wait to see Klay Thompson back on the court with the Warriors in the new year for the already dominant Warriors.  This design isn't my favorite of the Contenders brand but I still like them.
Retired greats are always appreciated.  Okoro is a wing for the Cavs but still hasn't found his shooting touch from deep though he has averaged nine points per game in his two seasons.  Some Sparty love.  
This was a good pack and always a fun brand to open.  The Ja Morant looks even better this year for the Grizzlies averaging 23 PPG, shooting 35% from three, and averaging almost seven assists per game.  

18 - Total Cards
2 – Game Ticket Green Parallel 
1 – Mascot
1 – Winning Ticket
1 – Front Row Seat
1 – Purple Game Ticket Parallel


  1. Fun set. Funny to see some of these guys in their college uniforms. I always forget Klay was Washington State.

    1. I'm always doing the same thing in remembering where players played for. Easy to forget for many of these guys.

  2. I never got behind the idea behind the set. Seems like a Panini cash grab. Maybe that's the point.

    1. I do like seeing players in their college unis. Contenders definitely isn't for everyone. While I'm a fan I've had many tell me they don't care for it.

  3. Those are some great looking cards. I am starting to like some of these sets with players in their collegiate uniforms. As a Duke fan, that Tatum card is pretty sweet.
