The Panini America Quality Control Gallery: 2012-13 Select Basketball (Part Two)

March 27, 2013

Panini America 2012-13 Select Basketball QC Part 2 (75)

One week from today, the next big thing in NBA trading cards will take the court with the release of Panini America’s hugely anticipated 2012-13 Select Basketball. We’ve been gradually revealing Select’s greatness for months right here on The Knight’s Lance, culminating with part one of a tantalizing Quality Control Gallery. Today, we deliver the fascinating finale.

Monday’s gallery was all about 2012-13 Select’s insert sets and their astounding Prizm parallels. Today’s conclusion focuses on the autographs, the autograph memorabilia cards and their astounding Prizm parallels. Enjoy this extended sneak peek and stay tuned in the coming days for more buzz-generating goodness, including a gallery detailing the first box break and a special episode of Panini Unwrapped.

    Eagerly anticipating the Unwrapped episode, I’m all in on this stuff. Cardboard Connection has so differences in their checklist compared to Panini’s checklist. Tracy, are the Commons Gold Prizms /10 or to /25? And are there Prime parallels of the Jersey cards? Thanks!

      The Golds are numbered to 10; as for prime memorabilia versions, the Gold and Black Prizms will feature prime memorabilia.

    Visually, I like how the jersey-auto cards look. You have the player, team logo, swatch, auto and the select logo at the bottom. Visually appealing, I like how it flows.

    Wow, great job Panini, this set should really make collectors happy. A great expansion on the Prizm technology!

    Dear Panini, your sell sheet said “175 Rookie Cards, where all have either an on-card autograph, or both an on-card autograph and a swatch of memorabilia”. You used the word “ALL”. If you can’t deliver that, I think you should stop advertising as such. BTW, I like the cards, just hate how the sell sheets always over-promised.

      Amen brother, I asked the same question. Also kind of upset they cut the golds down from 25 to 10. Sure they will sell for more, but chances of hitting one went kerplunk. Really hurts the value per box in my opinion considering what they are starting at.

    Can’t wait to get a hand on some of those. Especially the E’twaun Moore and Orlando Johnson for my PC.

    Tracy, can you confirm that 2010-11 Playoff National Treasures Timeline Materials Custom Names Prime #16 DeJuan Blair/2 was ever printed? it is the only card I need for the patch set and I have been looking since the day the set was released. I have seen the autos and the team name but never the “Blair” patch window.
    Check it out if you like:

    O.M.G. *Drooooooools* This stuff is just unreal. I hope I get some of these as early as possible because I’m pretty sure it will be plucked off the shelf very quickly. I can’t wait for the unwrapped episode! Thanks Tracy!

    where have these been released? cant find them on the Panini store and they arent in our local shops?

    • April 1, 2013 6:14 pm

      The release date is this Wednesday.

      • April 1, 2013 6:32 pm

        thanks Tracy, appreciate the info and maybe you can help me with one more question? where is the most reliable way to track these release dates as I dont see this set listed on the Panini web page under releases!?

      • April 1, 2013 6:46 pm

        We do our best to keep up with the release dates right here; but many of the larger online retailers or your local hobby shop should have a pretty reliable calendar, too.
