Today, Panini released images of the first autographed Phil Jackson trading card that was included as a redemption in 2010-11 Panini National Treasures basketball. 14 total redemption cards were created for the 2010-11 Panini National Treasures basketball set and they results are fantastic.
Here is one example of the three different cards created by Panini America…Phil Jackson and Kobe Bryant.
It’s hard to believe that the guy with 11 NBA Championships never had an autographed card before this season.
The other two autographed cards feature one with Phil Jackson and Dennis Rodman, while the other features Phil Jackson with Rodman, Tony Kukoc, and Ron Harper. Since Michael Jordan is currently in an exclusive contract with Upper Deck, a Phil Jackson/Michael Jordan dual autographed trading card is a still just a dream.
But I think a Kobe with Phil is just as great.
