Late Arrivals from Blake Griffin, Dr. J Bring 2012-13 Flawless Basketball into Form

October 15, 2013

Panini America 2012-13 Flawless Basketball Late Arrivals (24)

Admittedly, the full-court press on the burgeoning pre-release buzz for 2012-13 Flawless Basketball hit a bit of a delay in the last few weeks as Panini America officials temporarily put packout on hold while waiting for a few key signers to return their autographs. Headlining the list of late-arrivals? None other than Blake Griffin and Julius Erving.

Their breathtaking submissions in the last few days — in concert with a few key others — have put Flawless back on the fast track to release on October 25. Below, we’ve provided a must-see gallery of just some of the stunning autographs from Griffin and Dr. J. Enjoy the images and know this: We still have more to preview on 2012-13 Flawless Basketball, so stay tuned to The Knight’s Lance next week for another update.

    Oooooooooooooo! Flawless is The BEST! Although autographs of Jordan & and a few other stars sell for more money than “The Dr.,” Julius Erving is my all-time favorite basketball player. I’ll be buying a few of these from my customers for my PC!

    Very nice cards. It’s apparent which of the players care more about their signature, and the effort of signing his cards. Every Griffin autograph is scribbled and streaked. All he had to do is sit down, take his time and sign the card. Thanks much Blake, for caring.

    There has been completely nothing I’ve seen to justify the pricetag I’ve preordered at. Fairly disappointed so far with the previews.

    Is this the last of the signers? Is the product now finally ready to packout?

    Can’t wait to see this stuff live, I’ll be interested to see how each box looks from a value standpoint. Thanks Tracy!

      Do you really think the cards will average $150 each in “value” to make up the roughly $1500 box price? Am curious to see what the base sell for with their little gem stone.

    Love the old school Dr J pictures. Just like he looked playing at the Spectrum.

    When you see Blake Griffin’s auto next to Dr. J’s autograph you see how weak the new generation is. Blake Griffin’s auto looks different in every picture. He should be ashamed of himself. I would never keep an auto of a player who thinks so little of himself.

    Once again, it’s incredible how much those patches look brand new! They look right off the rack!! Must be a jersey he didn’t wear too much….

      Don’t know what you expect. These are basketball jerseys, not football or baseball. Unless they have blood on them, they are going to look relatively new. I doubt any respectable NBA team has a wear them until they wear out policy.
