Preview: 2012-13 Panini Momentum Basketball

Another Panini Basketball product is on it’s way out, and this time, they bring us 2012-13 Panini Momentum.


The first thing collectors should be looking for in Panini Momentum are the Momentus Rookie Autographs. These cards will feature the best rookies from the 2011 and 2012 drafts. Another autograph set to look for are the Momentum Autographs. This set has a very clean look and will feature some of the leagues most talented players.

A third Autograph set that collectors may find interesting are the Monumental Marks. This set will feature some of the best players from the present as well as the past. It’s also important to note that there will be a 300 base set featuring 85 of the best rookies.


Each box contains 1 pack with 15 cards per pack. In each box, it will contain 5 autograph cards per box.

You can find the product at DA Card World for around $190 when it releases May 15, 2013.

You can also find the checklist on Cardboard Connection and more information on the official Panini America blog.

Preview: 2012 Panini Momentum Football

Do you remember the Momentum brand of old? I don’t. Apparently it was around the year 2000, but I can’t put a finger on the product. I don’t know if that is good or bad, but Panini is trying to make you remember it this time around.

Releasing in July 2012 is 2012 Panini Momentum football with quite possibly the biggest haul of “hit” cards in a football product for the year. 10 packs per box with one hit per 3-card pack. This totals out to 1 Momentum Rookies Signatures card, 3 or 4 rookie autographs, and 5 or 6 memorabilia cards. This product is loaded with the hits.

But wait, that’s not it with the hits. There is an insert set in this product called “Studs”, and it’s not what you may think it is. This subset features players who are known to wear the “bling” on their ears. They can have bling, so why not you? Each of these cards is embedded with diamonds itself.

But back to the real hits. Each Momentum Rookies Signatures card will feature and autograph and three memorabilia pieces. You can also find more rookie memorabilia with the Head of the Class material cards featuring up to 4 pieces of memorabilia embedded. Are current and past stars your thing? Then you’ll love the Souvenir Signatures subset featuring autographs from players of today and the past.

This looks to be an interesting product from Panini, reminding me of a SPGU/Triple Threads mix. Check it out in July, where it’s sure to be hot.
