Panini America 2012-13 National Treasures Basketball July 17 Autos (9)

It’s amazing sometimes just how much set-developing magic can unfold in the span of four crazy days. To illustrate that point, we submit to you below the staggeringly good selection of 2012-13 National Treasures Basketball autographs that have hit Panini America HQ in the roughly 96 hours since we posted our most recent visual update on Saturday.

Anthony Davis. Harrison Barnes. Bradley Beal. Michael Kidd-Gilchrist. David RobinsonSteve Nash. That’s the short list of men whose collection-making National Treasures cornerstones are, as we speak, on their way to the Panini America production facility to be introduced into the packout process; that process begins in earnest tomorrow.

So as a means of helping us all pass the time until the release of 2012-13 Signatures Basketball (one week from today) and 2012-13 National Treasures Basketball (two weeks from today), we just couldn’t help but share the treasured fruits of the last four days. Enjoy the sneak peek and stay tuned to The Knight’s Lance in the coming days, when we’ll come to you directly from the production facility floor.

    Why are so many of those Amazing Autographed Patches NOT numbered ?

    Some are numbered to as HIGH as 199 ……

    And this is a product that is the most expensive product of the Year $500 + (Very BIG Plus) a pack

      All of the cards in this gallery will be numbered. Some that we got pics of just weren’t numbered yet.

    2 thoughts: 1. Love how the autographs are on card. 2. The “notable nicknames” ones are awesome. Love “Fear the Brow!”

    I seriously can’t begin to say how freaking excited these photos make me! This product is going to fly off shelves and go down as the best of the best next to Prizm this year! The cards are so clean and not over done. I love how simple but yet complex the cards are! You guys did wonderful by not killing the card with graphics and letting the jerseys and autos be the star of the show! They defiantly make the cards POP! I have been saving up to get my hands on hopefully a box or two! Can’t wait to hear the official release date! — Your fan from Tulsa, OK
