Teaser Gallery: Panini America Opens First Box of 2012-13 Totally Certified Basketball

November 20, 2012

OK, here’s the deal: We didn’t get our marketing allotment of 2012-13 Totally Certified Basketball boxes until late this evening. In fact, by the time they arrived, it was too late in the day to film an episode of Panini Unwrapped. That, unfortunately, will have to wait until tomorrow.

What doesn’t have to wait, however, is me grabbing just one box, busting it and showing you the contents right now to get you properly prepared for tomorrow’s release date. So that’s exactly what I did.

What follows, then, are my discoveries from the six 2012-13 Totally Certified Basketball packs and the bonus Kobe Anthology pack. Enjoy. And stay tuned to The Knight’s Lance tomorrow for another must-see episode of Panini Unwrapped.

    Thanks for the preview, I like the little tweaks from last year’s release while keeping it true to the form. We’ll be keeping an eye out for that Unwrapped tomorrow Tracy!

    Great product! When will be the ETA here in Asia?

    • November 20, 2012 11:15 pm

      Glad you like it. It’s live in the states tomorrow but it may already be live in some places over there. Many of our products seem to hit over there before they even go live here.

    Very cool looking set here! Between this and Prizm, this is an exciting time to be a basketball fan!

    I am drooling over the background of not just the hits but the base as well! It’s a very nice intro look to prizm! Although im sure they look nothing a like in person but the metallic background is a nice switch up! The image of the player really seems to pop! Will defiantly be on my list to buy this week! It seems like there is A LOT of Panini basketball products dropping from now to December. Happy Thanksgiving Panini! Thanks for getting me back into the hobby and making it fun again!

    Always a great product!! Loved the football version and glad the basketball version is back!

    Nice hits and good product! Just a question: why do not decide to keep the rookie auto and game used as the previous certified? Thanks
