Panini America 2012-13 Gold Standard Autos (31)

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.)
