    2013 Panini Immaculate Collection Giannis Antetokounmpo Autograph Patch #131 PSA Gem Mint 10. How the continents have shifted since this supreme rarity, and the supreme talent it celebrates, thundered into the public consciousness. The National Basketball Association operated under the unchallenged sovereignty of King James, and the trading card market saw only the usual vintage suspects drawing six and seven-figure auction results. Who could have possibly imagined how different the world would look in 2021?

    Certainly not the noble old Honus Wagner, nor the fresh-faced Mickey Mantle, who have seen recent cardboard commemoratives knocking the pair from their dusty perches. The emerging supremacy of the modern trading card market is arguably the biggest hobby story since the advent of third-party grading, and we find ourselves in the earliest days of that trend, leaving us all to imagine what monumental advancements await the early investors in this sweeping new paradigm.

    By the same token, the only story more improbable than a high school kid stamping his name so indelibly upon a league comprised of literal giants is the emergence of a two-time (and counting) NBA MVP from the nation of Greece, a land whose athletic identity had been filed under the single word "Olympics" for more than two millennia. Now there's not a dairy farmer in Wisconsin, nor a tour guide at the Parthenon, who cannot spell the surname of "The Greek Freak." Whether or not Giannis Antetokounmpo will ultimately deliver the first NBA Championship to Milwaukee since the days of Alcindor and Robertson remains to be seen, but the talent and tireless work ethic of this child of Nigerian refugees assure that his challenging name will not soon be forgotten.

    The experts at PSA who have examined the offered trading card assign its top assessment, and it's easy to see why. Every aspect of its form remains consistent with perfection, from the corners to the centering to the registration to the blue sharpie signature from the subject. Clearly the adjective "Immaculate" is well-earned here.
