With this full season of NBA products scheduled for Panini, it’s time to get into the nitty gritty of the basketball season and the product that accompany it. 2012-13 Panini Threads basketball is back this year and with it is the return of a collector’s favorite. With a couple new twists to the product, it should be able to keep the interest of those collectors.
Panini Threads features 24 packs per box at 5 cards per pack. Also included inside the packs is 3 autographs and 1 memorabilia card per box. I like Panini’s stance on more autographs and less memorabilia that they have been incorporating the past couple of years.
The autographs will mostly consist of the 100 rookies that are inserted into the product due to the combined rookie class in basketball products. Each of the rookies is printed on a wood stock and features an on-card autograph. You’ll find all your big names from the last couple of years, and a few others.
Some of the highlights of the product include the die-cut team jersey signatures, rookie team threads signatures, and the Private Signings autographed insert set as well as some prime memorabilia inserts.
This product releases on October 24, 2012, to the tune of around $100.
