We selected the Boston Celtics box.

The theme this month is WARM UP! The middle of the card shows the logos of the 13 franchises currently available.
Everything in my box!
Rastaclat Bracelet. This bracelet is all about positivity. Rastaclat means “cloth of righteousness.”
According to the tag, a percentage of the proceeds of this bracelet will be donated to support its advocacy.
It’s in black and green and it also features the Boston Celtics logo, Kyrie Irving’s surname, and his jersey number.
The NBA is the first big sports organization to partner with Rastaclat to release a custom line of bracelets.
NBA Cares works with youth programs that support education, development, and health-related causes inspiring play and teaching the values of the game. A percentage of the proceeds of this bracelet will be donated to supporting this cause.
At the back of the card, there is a 30% off coupon code you can use for your next Rastaclat purchase.
Our two apparel items matched perfectly with our team colors and logo made prominent elements of the design. Everything is licensed, and they are diligent about displaying the official NBA logo hologram on all of the packaging.
Team Gloves. A pair of knitted gloves in green with specks of black and white. It has garters on the cuffs for a better fit.
The gloves also feature the Lucky version of the Boston Celtics logo on the back of the hand. It’s a great accessory to have for winter!
Team Scarf. Another cold weather must-have is this scarf! It doesn’t just feature the team color and logo, there are Christmas-y patterns too!
It’s a well-balanced, well-designed scarf with green base color, a couple of B.C. logos, and a three leaf clover Celtics logo at the center.
This scarf is thick enough to provide warmth and comfort. I’m actually very impressed with the quality.
The fringes make it even more trendy!
Playing Cards. Officially licensed playing cards from the NBA. The box has a Celtic green court.
The cards have standard playing card faces and a standard card-stock finish. I was a little disappointed in these, given how nice the other items were. Custom face cards would have been awesome, but I would expect them to have at least sprung for a nice finish on the cards.
The back of the card is gold-colored, with a charming picture of Lucky in his trademark pose.
This month’s Courtside Crate gets us ready for the upcoming winter season with the inclusion toasty and fashionable gloves and a scarf. We also have playing cards to keep us entertained even when we decide to stay in, plus a Rastaclat that looks stylish no matter what season. All of them are exclusive and official items from our favorite NBA team, the Boston Celtics! The gloves and scarf look so cool, but what stood out the most for me is the Rastaclat — My Kyrie Irving Rastaclat was the perfect Thanksgiving accessory! This is the ideal subscription for a die-hard NBA fan and it’s perfect for gifting too!
