When it comes to the heart of the 2012-13 NBA collecting season, well, we're smack dab in the middle of it right now. Past & Present released last week, with both Momentum and Brilliance coming hot on its heels. After that? None other than perennial product-of-the-year front-runner Gold Standard.
When it comes to the heart of the 2012-13 NBA collecting season, well, we’re smack dab in the middle of it right now. Past & Present released last week, with both Momentum and Brilliance coming hot on its heels. After that? None other than perennial product-of-the-year front-runner Gold Standard.
Over the next several days, we’ll share several captivating looks at both Momentum and Brilliance. Today, however, we’re going for the gold. Inspired by last night’s scorching action in the NBA Playoffs between Chicago and Miami and Golden State and San Antonio, we ventured back to the Panini America Acquisitions vault earlier today to see what we could come up with.
And what we came up with was nothing less than a goldmine. Literally, a dazzling, drool-inducing stash of some of the nicest NBA trading cards we’ve seen all season; a drop-dead-gorgeous array of on-card autographs sure to make 2012-13 Gold Standard Basketball sparkle brighter than any edition has to date.
Enjoy this must-see first look at 2012-13 Gold Standard Basketball and stay tuned tomorrow for a thorough examination of 2012-13 Brilliance Basketball. (Oh, and just because we couldn’t wait to share, we’ve also provided two cards from the upcoming 2012-13 Elite Series Basketball.)

Those are freaking ridiculous and beautiful designs to the cards! The on-card autos, along with the memorabilia really bring out the card more. Great stuff Panini, keep it up !
Such a sick product! too bad I can’t afford it lol
Sickness, cant wait!
Is Momentum releasing tomorrow or next week?
Next Wednesday, I believe.
Wow those are some nice patch cards! That Anthony Davis 1/1 is sick
Beautiful cards, and i bet they look even better in real life. Good job!
Look at the beauty of on-card autographs! Big, bold, the players actually have room to sign their full names! This set is gorgeous and should be the standard. Unfortunately, this makes all your sticker products (ie. the majority of Momentum) look like they belong in the bargain bin.
Fantastic autographs! Sidenote: I have yet to figure out how Davis decides when he’s going to give his full autograph vs. his “just initials & #” one. Wonder if there’s any thought behind it or if it’s just random?
I love the GS product Panini produces the cards are gorgeous! The cards look marvelous in the ultra pro magnetic card protectors!
Aloha & Mahalo from beautiful Hawaii
Are those patch autos a parallel or are they the base rookies?
I like the rectangular swatch. It’s just different (compared to square swatch).
On card autos = Golden . These have a great look to them, especially the RPA’s. I cant wait to see the previews of Brilliance(At least one set in particular) over the next few days! 😀
All Gold Everything Woooooooooo! Gold Standard never disappoints! Love the on card autos! Great Preview Tracy! yeyeye
awesome look…any plans to do another round for football..PLEASE 😉
Absolutely love it.
On card glory. You can’t beat it.
Looking forward to the release.
Nice preview, I just finished watching Rick Fox acting on the show “Oz” (we’re re-watching it after a few years, it’s one of my all-time fave) so it’s funny that you would lead the gallery with his auto. Thanks as always Tracy!
Man..this Panini basketball team better be getting a raise
Hey Tracy, what insert sets are involved in Gold Standard? The cards look great- can’t wait to see some 14k cards!
Best basketball release to come out for awhile, just curious how the base look and what is the box breakdown? Price range also per box?
Looks Rally good!
Hard On Card Autos!
Shiny very Attractive!
Panini Are releasing and Sharing The Golds!
And We are very Proud and to accept those!
Thank you Tracy And Team Panini!
Another sure and exciting Product from the sole Licensed Of the NBA.
WHY ARE THERE NO LEBRON AUTOS? THAT IS JUST SAD
We have some great LeBron base, insert and memorabilia cards. We can’t do autographs of him because he has an exclusive deal with another manufacturer. I understand you being sad about that.
