  1. I deluded myself into believing that, along with taking my family on vacation this week, I could also swing a box of NT. I can’t, but I CAN thrill vicariously via this 2-box break.
    Having been so thrilled, allow me to now wax poetic on the beautiful Z-Bo Adidas patch, the highly-sought Shaq sneaker swatch, the must-have Charles Oakley auto jersey…. I must say, 2 great breaks. Really top notch stuff worthy of the NT moniker.

    No box for me, but I’ll send you a postcard, T-Hack!

  2. insulting putting A.I.with the grizzlies jersey but even more so seeing Parrish in a bulls jersey. Like thats something special? C’mon man

  3. pretty underwhelming really…
    the z-bo is nice, maybe 2-3 decent cards per box the rest is nothing special.
    for the price it is I’m not too impressed.

  4. Always loved the look of this set, but the veteran auto checklist is keeping me away from ever opening this product. Longley? Finley? Even Oakley is probably shouldn’t be in here. The Jersey cards aren’t much better.

    1. I understand the collective collector disdain for sticker autos, and no collector erupts into a “happy-dance” upon pulling an “awesome redemption card,” especially if it’s one of the precious hits invluded in a $600/1 pack box. But curating autographed relic cards is, no doubt, just as challenging for Panini as it is for us. (But I’ll gladly intern at Panini N.A jusssst to make sure!) Staying on-top of these dudes so that they return their issues signed, as they should be (please see “legibly” on http://www.dictionary.com), has GOT to be a Herculean task for Panini. Likewise, when one of these athletes DOES make himself available for an ink session, having him apply said-ink to 400-1000 stickers for use in products a year or 3 out only makes sense. Sticker autos certainly aren’t ideal, Panini is assuredly aware of their customers’ penchant for hard-signed issues. Nevertheless, if we want these athletes reflected in the auto-mem’ checklists…now AND in the future, then this is the trade-off we will have to come to terms with.

  5. Thanks for the preview.
    Love the Shaq sneaker swatch auto and some very nice veteran patches.

    I will be buying singles only of this product.
    From this break and the National case, it does not look to bring much of a return at the price point.
    Please exclude stickers from “High End” products

  6. Misleading break. It seems like of the 15 boxes I’ve seen broken online half had redemptions. Guess you guys don’t want to advertise that though…

      1. Bah, points is what I mean! Haha. Even worse than redemptions.

        Perhaps the group breakers should add a spot for points! Likely to be the team with the most “hits”

  7. Nice looking cards don’t understand why they have to be so thick.. and way to much $$$ for some sticker autos.

  8. It looks like you didn’t pack out Mitch McGary autographs at all. Can you please confirm if these are coming in a second run, will be available on points, or will never be seen? Bought a number of cases with the hopes of landing one (michigan collector). Wish it had been clear in the checklist/sell sheet that he was not included

  9. Tracy, any chance we can get a checklist of all the press plates in this product? I believe you (or someone from Panini) put one up when 12-13 NT came out? Thanks in advance.
