Teaser Gallery: Panini America Breaks First Box of 2012-13 Prizm Basketball (Checklist)

November 27, 2012

Sure, we could wait until our marketing allotment of 2012-13 Prizm Basketball arrives later today or early tomorrow morning to bring you the first look at one live box of the new NBA product from Panini America. But with a product as highly anticipated as Prizm, waiting just won’t do. (Besides, we’ll use those marketing boxes to bring you the world premiere episode of Panini Unwrapped).

Long story short: We managed to get our hands on one hot-off-the-presses 20-pack Prizm box (we won’t tell you exactly where we go it so as not to draw the ire of other departments around here who may find themselves one box short) and we wanted to share the contents of that box with you here on The Knight’s Lance ASAP before the product goes live tomorrow.

So, here goes — a pack-by-pack visual gallery of the first box of 2012-13 Prizm Basketball. Oh, and stay tuned after the images for a link to the complete product checklist. Enjoy . . .

And now, here’s the checklist: 2012-13 Prizm Basketball Checklist

    My favorite number is fourteen, so I wouldn’t mind clearing up some of your workspace by relieving you of pack 14 😉

    Awesome hit on the anthony davis! Great looking cards… The Kobe pack doesn’t really do it for me but everything else is just what the hobby has been missing.

    Is the Davis auto on card?

  7. November 27, 2012 1:08 pm

    Awesome hit with the Anthony Davis auto. Can’t wait to see the Panini Unwrapped for this set!

  8. November 27, 2012 1:09 pm

    Awesome box!! The Anthony Davis was an awesome pull HUH. My favorites were the Shawn Kemp (Sonics forever),Robert Sacre, JJ Hickson, Jeremy Tyler, Martell Webster, Jose Calderon, Raja Bell and the Will Barton auto. So when you need to give those cards away you know how to reach me! Great job Panini.

    Love that Davis auto. Sick pull. Nice cards as well. Even the base cards and prizms are just as important as the hits. This looks like a winner to me. And a product i am very excited about

    It’s crazy exciting to hear that so many people are digging the Prizm previews. Can’t wait to hear your thoughts once you’ve had a chance to check some out for yourselves.

    Wow looking good- Tracy does Prizm Basketball have any retail exclusive green prizms, or is that just in Prizm Football?

    • November 27, 2012 3:30 pm

      Prizm Basketball does have a retail Green Prizm insert — and they look fantastic.

        Good to know- Thanks Tracy:)

    The base sets 1-300 (in presell) are selling like hotcakes on eBay. I’m going to have to order more cases. Collector demand is very high. You guys really did hit a home run with this one. Wait… a 3-pointer.

    can I have the Anthony Davis auto?

  20. November 27, 2012 3:33 pm

    oooooooo shiny first box!! Looking good!!

  21. November 27, 2012 4:59 pm

    Beautiful cards….love the Prizm parallel cards! Do the autographed rookie cards have a Prizm parallel variant?

    By nice pull on the Davis! Can’t wait to pick up all of my players from this set!

    Wow PRIZM looks like it will exceed my expectations which was already high! I can’t wait to bust open some boxes this weekend!! Great job as always Panini!!!

    Nice hit on Mr. Davis!
    I would probably be better off sending you guys my boxes since I can never manage to pull something heartStopping XD
    I still remember the episode with Kobe when you pulled the Kobe auto next to him LOL
    Thanks for the break, lookin forward to the unwrapped tmrw 🙂

  24. November 27, 2012 5:50 pm

    When will retail begin to hit the stores?

  25. David permalink

    Wait so there will not be any Kawhi Leonard autographs in this set? That is kind of disappointing considering there are autographs of players who probably will not even play this season.

  26. November 27, 2012 6:30 pm

    Anderson Varejao! sweet lookin’ cards

    Pack 5 please! Oh my bad, I thought this was another great contest by the great people of The Knights Lance who work for the great company Panini America, located in the great Country of The US of A….No?

    TOPPS has got to be shaking in their boots right now. Chrome won’t come close to this! Can’t wait to get a few boxes this week! Need to turn my dry streak around 😛

    Wow! Those look phenomenal! For once I don’t mind a sticker auto, they blend in great with the card. Is it safe to say the USA cards are sp? That could be a real nice set to put together. Are you guys planning on rolling out this style of card to football and hockey?

    • November 28, 2012 9:32 am

      I think it’s safe to say the USA cards are SP, yes. And absolutely, Prizm is coming to football later this year.

    I collect Gerald Henderson, game used cards, autos etc. I haven’t seen much new stuff, any chance he will be back in the production line-up?

    • November 30, 2012 12:13 pm

      No plans for new inclusion at this point, but stay tuned.

      • Ronnie permalink
        November 30, 2012 12:18 pm

        Will do! I’ve just about bought each different rookie card that I’ve seen. Still on the look out for 1 Letterman Auto to finish Henderson.

    Hey Tracy, just busted the case of Prizm and had some pretty solid results. Highlights are 3 golds: Al Horford, Tony Wroten and Enes Kanter (excited about the Kanter!) Autos of Zeller, Meyers Leonard, Brandon Knight and MKG and a bunch of great rookie prizm parallels (gotta think of a better name for the parallels guys!!!) including Kobe! My question to you is, I only pulled 3/4 Anhtony Davis’ and MKG’s in the entire 12 box case. Are there short prints in this product, if so please advise where we can find them or please make a list soon!!! Thanks.

      btw all golds were #’d either 1/10 or 10/10!
