For a limited time only and while supplies last, customers who purchase $100 worth of NBA product at will receive a one-card 2013 NBA Finals Promo Pack guaranteed to include either one randomly selected Private Signings autograph card, one autograph memorabilia Rookie Card, or a one-of-one diamond-studded card featuring either LeBron James, Tim Duncan, Dwyane Wade or 2013 NBA Rookie of the Year Damian Lillard.

The staggering collection of special NBA Finals-themed cards features a checklist that includes the greatest players in NBA Finals history and some of the NBA’s most promising young stars. We’ve provided a small gallery of the cards for your preview pleasure below, as well as the complete product checklist. Stay tuned to The Knight’s Lance in the coming days for a gallery of every card in the set.

Dotting the autograph checklist are all-time great NBA champions such as Bryant, Bill Russell, James Worthy, Larry Bird, Magic Johnson and many more; top young stars and rookies such as Kyrie Irving, Kenneth Faried, Anthony Davis, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist and more.

Collectors who purchase $100 worth of select NBA product on (2011-12 Totally Certified, 2012-13 Timeless Treasures, 2012-13 Limited, 2012-13 Past & Present and 2012-13 Contenders) will receive one 2013 NBA Finals Promo Pack. Multiple purchases are allowed – in other words, if you purchase five boxes of eligible product then you will receive five 2013 NBA Finals Promo Packs.

    What are the rookie patch auto numbered to? Is there a checklist with the corresponding serial numbers for all cards in the set?

    These look great. How can us Aussie get some.

      You can get it on it, you just have to pay international shipping charges. If you have any issues placing an order, tweet our very own Chris Reed (@creed_75), or leave a comment here and I’ll have him call you.

        Hi Tracy, another Aussie collector here. The only shipping options seems to be to the US or Canada???

      • June 6, 2013 7:35 pm

        Please send Chris Reed an email at He’ll work with you to get your product shipped.

    Will these be numbered to 25 or less like the Super Bowl ones??

  10. June 6, 2013 1:59 pm

    Down for 5. Considering more.

    These look very nice. One thing that bugs me, though, is that it appears The Hulk is trying to get Larry Bird’s attention. That green hand just looks really weird.

    Outstanding looking set, nice adaptation from the football version earlier this year. Good luck towith all those who order. Thanks Chris!

    Are they sticker autos or are some on card?
    Hard to tell looking on my phone

  14. June 6, 2013 2:19 pm

    These mockups look like on card sigs. Please tell me this is the case. If so, I’m heading back to iCollectPanini.

    Just curious, are you guys having a hard time getting Dirk Nowitzki autos or something? I know he’s not the most marketable player, but he is one of the NBA’s best players and he is right in Panini’s backyard. I’ve noticed that almost every product this year, he has almost zero autos (if he does, its VERY limited), and now here in the Finals promo, being a MVP, he doesn’t have a card. Its just a little discouraging to know I don’t have a chance to get an auto from my favorite player when I get a new box. Thanks! (Either way, these cards and promos are pretty awesome!)

    Do I have to buy the box on the website or can I got to my card store and pick up one of these boxes and get a promo pack

    Hey Tracy is it true these promo packs are not sealed???? If so that is a pretty big issue my friend

    • June 11, 2013 9:08 am

      They’re sealed.

      • June 11, 2013 10:11 am

        I figured they would be sealed since the super bowl ones were. Great promo once again!!! Can’t wait!!
