    please have more jeremy lin autos and jersey cards in future sets.

    I like the design!

    But what are the Above and Beyond set? Are they retail only and/or serial numbered??

    If you ignore the jersey card, the 2 autos and the horizontally-oriented Magic Numbers inserts, all the cards look about the same. Just page through the various pictures and it’s tough to tell which cards are base cards and which are inserts.

    On the plus side, thank you, thank you, thank you Panini for putting ONLY 60 RC autos in this product. In almost all of your other 12-13 releases, you have 100 RC autos …….making the pool so diluted that it’s next to impossible to get any sense of value. I’m glad the HUGE HISTORIC DOUBLE ROOKIE CLASS is a bit less huge in this product.

      So you don’t collect 2011 2nd round picks John Leuer and Vernon Macklin?! I couldn’t even tell you what a Kyrie Irving autograph looks like after opening about 50+ basketball boxes this year so far…

    This is probably the most overpriced product I’ve ever seen. Cards appear warped too. I will stay away.

    The base looks similar to Absolute

    If Panini was going for the whole foil look (which is nice) then why aren’t the autograph cards aren’t also in foil?

    ‘team tomorrow’ and ‘spellbound’….. wow, great sub-set names….. and maybe the Panini embedded logo should be smaller than the player’s names next time, seems like a ‘go Panini!’ product rather than focusing on the essence of basketball…. an outlandish and overwhelming product at best

    Reblogged this on NimitzBlog and commented:
    Very nice product imho. The design of the inserts is great. Love the spellbound insert personally.

    Will be available at Nimitz Collectibles in few days. Stay tuned folks 🙂
