2012-13 National Treasures Gold Authentic Signatures Thompson/Kidd-Gilchrist RC
2012-13 National Treasures Authentic Signatures Gold Thompson Sophmore Auto and Michael Kidd-Gilchrist Rookie Auto #79 and Numbered #16 /25. National Treasures is known as the almighty of basketball cards (well, within the Panini realm anyway). The 2012-13 set featured some amazing talent. The talent was both evident on the court, and in other circumstances, the headlines off the court. For some reason, I really want to quote Jerry Springer quotes, You the baby daddy! But I will give good old TT a break for now.. On a more serious note, this card represents something pretty unique. It has Cleveland's fourth overall in the 2012 Draft in Thompson and 2012-13 sophmore Michael Kidd-Gilchrist. To provide context to the performance of Kidd-Gilchrist's rookie season (2012-13), he literally bested his career averages in minutes played, points scored, games played, rebounds (both offensive and defensive), assists per game, and blocks per game. Tristan Thompson on the other had year after year improvements, dominating for Cleveland as a rookie where he averaged 8.2 PTS and 6.5 RBS, and reaching close to a double-double average the following two seasons where he put up 11.7 PTS and 9.4 RBS and 11.7 PTS and 9.2 RBS, respectively.
Then, there were subtle hints that his attention went elsewhere aka Ooookay... See what I did there?
Make myself laugh sometimes and for the next few seasons he ate salami and crackers. Anyway, enough of my rubbish... The card is a great card. It's numbered to only 25 and this one is MINT.
If you have any questions, please touch base! It is merely opinion (and truthfully, wouldn't even put it as that).
