Kobe Bryant 09-10 Notable Nicknames Black Mamba /99 Bgs 9.5 10 Auto Inscription:
The graded card up for saleis Kobe Bryant 09-10 National Treasures Notable Nicknames /99 Autowith inscription Black Mamba, graded by BGS to 9.5 with auto 10 and with pristine surface subgrade. The auto is fresh and blue, andwas beautifully scripted, unlike many copies withslightly careless or faded autossurfaced so far.
The significance of this cardlies in the following:
1. Kobe's first Panini inscription ever---Panini has exclusivelicense with Kobe and NBA for years to come.
2. It is from the first year of Panini's most high end product, National Treasures.
3. It is true to the set name, black mamba is Kobe's nickname, not the MVP for example.
4. The redemption card for this card is pack-pulled, unlike MVP /35 inscription which was often issued to replace high-end unredeemable redemptions.
5. Although Kobe's black mamba has been inscribed to a limited number of Upper Deck cards, the inscription is often specific to a certain number 24/; this Notable nickname is to my knowledge the first time Kobe's inscribing Black Mamba to the full print-run.
6. Only BGS 9 and raw versions tend to go on sale, while 9.5 versions often are locked in PC, very rarely seen on the market.
Good luck. .
