Panini America 2013 Fourth Fireworks Hockey (12)

Before you set out with family and friends to celebrate our nation’s independence on this glorious Fourth of July holiday, we thought we’d treat you to a must-see fireworks demonstration that only Panini America can provide. It’s a thrilling, chill-bump-inducing display sure to leave you in awe and inspired — especially if you happen to covet some of the greatest sports heroes on some of the sweetest sports cards you’ve likely ever seen.

With powder-keg products such as 2012-13 National Treasures Basketball, 2012-13 Prime Hockey and 2013 Cooperstown Baseball all in various stages of completion right now, Panini America HQ has been on the receiving end of some absolutely dynamite autographs in recent days. Headlined by the likes of transcendent talents such as Gordie Howe, Dr. J and Eddie Murray, our most recent batch of on-card autographs foretell of the splendor to come in the three aforementioned blockbusters.

But don’t simply take my word for the glory of what’s to come. Exercise your independence and take a look for yourself at the more than 50 pristine images that follow. You’ll be glad you did. Consider this gallery your first fireworks demonstration of the day, with the promise of more to come.

From all of us here at Panini America, here’s wishing you and yours a happy, healthy and memorable Fourth of July holiday. Now, let’s get to the eye candy.

    I’m loving the look of the Cooperstown Baseball guys!! Is it just me or is there a similar colour scheme going on to what was used in National Treasures Baseball?

    Looking forward to these!!!

    Absolutely gobsmacking (that better be a word) cards in this preview. The Logoman cards are absolutely BRILLIANT, what special jersey is the Juwan Howard one off? The standard base autos are FANTASTIC as well. Loving the look of the hocket release the Gordie Howe cards are pretty sweet and there are some filthy patches scattered throughout. Very nice idea to have the silver and gold marker on the 1/1 the signature loses a bit of clarity when they press too hard / use one thats a bit too large but they still look sweet. Thanks for the look o purveyor of previews!

    All these AWESOME products and I’m still trying to get all my 2013 Rookie Anthology products online. So much cool stuff, so little time.

    Way to be dedicated Tracy on this Fourth of July holiday!

      I think that’s from the Green week games but I’ll confirm with the product guys and let you know what year/game.

    Lets have some fun!
    Wow logo man!!!!Beautiful! !!!
    We heard and read awesome stories of National Treasures.
    We never had the pleasure yet to enjoy this
    Since its A National Holiday perfect timing for showing off some teasers
    Of the most anticipated product from Panini
    I keep saying Preferred is, boom hit automatic.
    Prizm boom hit,
    Select, definitely until now is a favorite
    Boom Gold bars another mega hit.
    Then blowout forums and youtube community still
    Are super excited that Panini is bringing this Back.
    Since my son and I are almost a year old in our basketball portfolio we
    Never had the chance to enjoy this.
    We have some cards of it from secondary market. And they are supreme cards.
    Now that Tracy had given us some lights of it.
    Its boom boom boom , fireworks in full effect. Spectacular
    Is really the word on it.
    So thanks again for the teaser, ehem, preview Tracy!
    As always Panini always surprises us.

    I’ve been a Sixers fan for over 30 years. However if I purchased a high end item like NT Basketball and pulled Lavoy Allen’s cards I would not be happy. As nice as they look and numbered to 5 and all, they are worth about nothing. I know you you have to fill a checklist but there are some players that don’t belong in certain products. I’m sure he’s a nice guy but there is nothing about him or his play as an NBA player that screams putting him in a product like this. And you see this happen so many times in all similar products. Here you have some nice HOFers up there and then you put Lavoy Allen in there? I went from Im going to see if i can buy this to…not if players like that are in it because if anyone can pull them it’s me. Nope. Sorry.

    Blown right out of my seat! Wow guys really explosive! Really like the logoman cards. The Howard is sweet especially the green and Nat Treasures basketball will be very impressive. Prime hockey is sick. Prime patches like no other!

    Hope you and your family had a great 4th Tracy and rest of the Panini America family as well!
