Seeing Green: Panini America Drops Special Insert in 2013 Industry Summit Black Boxes

March 15, 2013

Panini America 2013 Industry Summit Black Box Select (11)

The palpable buzz surrounding the upcoming release of 2012-13 Select Basketball is sure to intensify considerably beginning next Tuesday during the 2013 Industry Summit, when Panini America officials distribute their trademark Black Boxes to conclude a Summit-wide corporate address. Indeed, in addition to randomly inserted 1/1 autograph or memorabilia masterpiece inserted into each box, company officials have also included a little something more.

Every Panini America Black Box distributed next week will include a special five-card preview pack of 2012-13 Select Basketball utilizing a Summit-exclusive Green Prizm design available nowhere else. Each five-card pack will include a random assortment of Hot Rookies, Hot Stars and base cards numbered to as low as 10.

To be sure, the emerald-tinted preview cards shed a positive light on the stacked potential of the Select release and validate all of the pre-release hype. We provide a quick gallery of the cards in the gallery below.

Stay tuned to The Knight’s Lance for continuing coverage of the Panini America presence at the 2013 Industry Summit, which begins in earnest Sunday afternoon.

    Cool theme-with all of the extras being green. You can say we are GREEN with envy if we can’t attend, and would certainly be seeing green if you could go! Enjoy VEGAS!

    Great job adding value to an already loaded item, it would be nice to hear from the receipients of these boxes as to what exactly they plan to do with them. I’d like to hear stories of shop owners getting them into the hands of the customers in all kinds of creative ways, sealed or open. Thanks Tracy and Scott!

    WOWWWW… these could seriously be the nicest NBA cards Panini has made to date!! And I thought the original Prizm greens were beautiful… these are even nicer!

    Lol the only downside is that I’m going to go broke buying these… especially since they’re so low #’d 😦

    You guys just do such an awesome job with these promotions. You usually leave me speechless with drool. Wished I could be apart of more of them but hopefully I can at least be apart of the Fathers Day one again.
