Panini America Provides “Patchtastic” Peek at 2013-14 Gold Standard Basketball

February 10, 2014

Panini America 2013-14 Gold Standard Basketball Patches 7

The Panini America NBA team was hard at work over the weekend putting the finishing touches on packout for 2013-14 Gold Standard Basketball. As a result, my email inbox received a welcome dose of images from NBA Assistant Brand Manager Cory Hollingsworth, who was nice enough to share some flat-out sick images of a few patch cards that were randomly inserted into the product on Saturday afternoon.

Included in Hollingsworth’s email were some true multicolored marvels featuring some of the greatest players of all time — and his email included just a small fraction of the patch cards available in 2013-14 Gold Standard Basketball. Black Golds. White Golds. Bullion Brand Logos. They were on beautiful display Saturday. Now they’re on beautiful display in the gallery below.

Enjoy the sneak peek and stay tuned to The Knight’s Lance for a complete Quality Control Gallery soon.

    Whoa. I get the feeling you guys have your finger on the pulse of the end consumers. Nice work delivering what we are all clamoring for. Setting the bar on mid to high level items and the kind of patches that SHOULD be in that kind of product.

    Nice work and glad to be a Panini Fan!

    That “Black Gold” subset has been improved every year of Gold Standard! Can’t wait to group break this at a real life hobby shop in Woodland Hills, CA @Wax Czar!

    I think that Drexler patch made me shed a little tear… I want it more than anything I’ve ever wanted in my entire life đŸ˜¦

    Very very nice! I live the addition of the borders around the patches for this year

    Do Ersan Ilyasova or Larry Sanders have any sick patches/tags in Gold Standard this year??

  15. February 10, 2014 2:44 pm

    Is my boy Gordon Hayward is on any of the set (Black Gold, White Gold or Bullion)?

  16. February 10, 2014 3:32 pm

    These look awesome, Not drastically different from previous Gold Standard editions, but different enough to stand out. People who hate on these are crazy, probably the same people pumping low quality reprints đŸ™‚
