Panini Eternal’s ongoing Kobe Bryant 20th season tribute will take a decided step up when it continues on Friday with three autographed cards honoring Bryant’s 2005-06 season, including two versions featuring Kobe-added inscriptions. The base autograph version will be limited to just 24 copies. In addition, there will be eight Yellow versions featuring an “81 Points” inscription and a one-of-kind Black version featuring “5x Champ” and “18x All-Star” inscriptions.
This marks the first time that Panini Eternal has offered Bryant-autographed cards — and it is believed that the Black version is the first trading card ever to feature these particular inscriptions. The cards will go live on the Panini Eternal platform tomorrow at 2 p.m. CST and will be available for 72 hours or until they are sold out. Check out all three cards after the jump.
