2012-13 Threads Basketball Century Greats: The Panini America Insert Set Inspection

October 06, 2012

During the last five days, we’ve attempted to prepare you for the upcoming release of 2012-13 Threads Basketball by providing glimpses into many of the product’s most-colorful, modern-era insert sets, including Inside Presence, Talented Twosomes and High Flyers. Today, we depart from that pattern to showcase the history-soaked Century Greats insert.

This 25-card tribute to the NBA’s greatest all-time performers features a superbly simple design — incorporating a whitish hardcourt backdrop that allows the larger-then-life legends featured to pop off the card.

As its name suggests, Century Greats brings together basketball’s best and most-collected icons from the last 100 years, including the likes of Wilt Chamberlain, Julius Erving, Magic Johnson, Larry Bird, Scottie Pippen and more.

You can admire the entire 25-card set in the gallery below. Enjoy, and stay tuned to The Knight’s Lance for additional previews of 2012-13 Threads Basketball in advance of its October 24 release date.
