Hoop Dreams: Panini America Peeks Latest Autos for 2012-13 Immaculate Basketball
At this very moment, seemingly every member of the Panini America Product Development team is across town at the company production facility giving 2012-13 Flawless Basketball the white-glove treatment — literally. From painstakingly scrutinizing every card slated for inclusion in the product to hand-collating every last pack, the Flawless process is one that will last all weekend and into next week.
I get the opportunity Monday morning to document the Flawless packout firsthand, so you can expect tons of behind-the-scenes content on that early next week. Meanwhile, back here at Panini America HQ, the hard-signed gems for 2012-13 Immaculate Basketball continue arriving at a brisk pace. In fact, in the few days since we brought you the first Immaculate preview, the likes of Larry Bird, John Stockton, David Robinson, Tim Hardaway and more have returned their Immaculate cards.
The following gallery details the latest arrivals, and should provide for an exhilarating finish to your Friday. Enjoy the gallery and stay tuned for additional updates; between Flawless and Immaculate, the stirring finish to the 2012-13 NBA collecting season promises to be must-see stuff.
