NBA card news: Breaker in shock over hilariously bad autograph error pull
It’s always a treat whenever you get to join an NBA card box break, especially if a high-end product is going to be ripped. While there will always be a lot of treasures to be pulled out from your NBA Hoops or Donruss boxes, breaking these more expensive sets will always be exciting for any collector. But in some instances, there will be a break where you’ll be left with more questions than answers.

In a video shared by Cardporn, a breaker from Grim Ripper Sports Cards was seen opening a box of Panini 2019-20 Obsidian. This particular product contains seven cards in each box and is currently valued at $565 on eBay. In stark contrast, collectors can score a lot more cards by purchasing blaster boxes or fat packs of NBA Hoops or Donruss. The key difference here is that the NBA cards found in this set have a higher value when they hit the market.
But what Grim Ripper Sports Cards found in this specific Obsidian box has the potential to defy both value and logic. As the rookie autographed card was revealed with the Sacramento Kings’ Kyle Guy on it, the back had an entirely different player. It was Brandon Clarke of the Memphis Grizzlies.
Probably the most annoying thing about this situation is that the rookie card itself was a Gold parallel numbered to 10 copies. While Clarke or Guy aren’t exactly the hottest names from the 2019 Draft Class, it could have been neat to pull a proper rookie autographed NBA card of either plater with such a short print run.
While the blame certainly falls on Panini’s shoulders, this error card pull is definitely worth talking about. With more and more box breaking groups popping out, there won’t be a shortage of crazy card stories down the horizon.
