Signs of Immaculate: Peeking Newest Autos from 2012-13 Immaculate Basketball
No one will ever accuse Panini America Brand Director Karvin Cheung of being anything less than hands-on with his products. True story: Cheung spent so much time in the Panini America memorabilia vault cutting game-worn NBA jerseys for 2012-13 Immaculate Basketball that he earned the nickname “Karvin Scissorhands.” (For the record, NHL Brand Manager Chris Barr did the same for 2012-13 Prime Hockey but was able to avoid a moniker to match.)
In any event, now that Cheung’s blade work for Immaculate is complete, lately he’s turned his attention to photographing examples of seemingly every on-card autograph that’s been returned for Immaculate to date. And a small selection of those images — just the tip of the iceberg, really — are detailed in the preview gallery that follows.
We’ll have much more Immaculate to preview in the coming weeks, but we wanted to pull the curtain back ever so slightly today for those anxious collectors who’ve been asking to see more of the product that follows Flawless to provide a fitting end to Panini America’s 2012-13 NBA collecting season.
Between a spectacular array of captivating autograph designs and the as-yet-unseen mammoth and mesmerizing memorabilia cards, Immaculate promises to wow and regale collectors. Enjoy the gallery, and stay tuned to The Knight’s Lance next week for additional coverage of Flawless as we count down to that product’s October 23 release date.
