The Panini America QC Gallery & Checklist: 2012-13 Threads Basketball (59 Images)

October 12, 2012

Late yesterday afternoon we provided an appetizing selection of 20 images from the just-completed quality-control process for 2012-13 Threads Basketball, which begins shipping on Monday. Today, we’re back with the massive main course.

2012-13 Threads Basketball is the third Panini America NBA release of the new season and delivers, among other things, the first cards of superstars such as Dwight Howard, Steve Nash, Jeremy Lin and Andre Iguodala in their new uniforms, the scarce, laser-cut Century Stars insert that falls one per case, and the wood-stocked autographed RCs that have come to define the brand.

The following gallery details all of those things and more — most notably a bevy of Threads base cards, parallels, inserts and even the spot-UV-treated box. Oh, and for those of you who want to peruse the checklist before the October 24 release date, we’ve added that, too.

    Are the Wood Rookie Card Auto’s serial numbered?? On the checklist it doesn’t show them as being numbered.

    Hey Tracy, I have a question about the base checklist. Where’s all the Knicks’ players? I don’t see Carmelo or Amare. Also what happened to the Nets? Is this an error or you guys left them out?

      I can’t imagine we left them out, but I will investigate.

        Alright. Thanks Tracy. The base design looks really nice. Its weird that I don’t see some familiar names on the checklist. Thanks again .
