2012-13 Preferred Basketball Packout (10)

The Panini America NBA team is burning the candle at both ends right about now. Hot on the heels of releasing last week a 2012-13 Marquee Basketball product that offers a breadth of foils, print technologies and unique Rookie Card types comes word today that the guys are hard at work at the production facility this week preparing 2012-13 Preferred Basketball for takeoff.

The highly anticipated follow-up to last season’s Preferred debut will deliver an updated array of all the bells and whistles collectors instantly fell in love with the last time around, including a seeming library’s worth of new booklets, the die-cut Panini’s Choice Award autographs, Preferred Signatures and those breathtaking Silhouettes and Rookie Silhouettes.

We’ll have tons more to preview on 2012-13 Preferred Basketball in the coming days right here on The Knight’s Lance. But in the name of immediate gratification, here’s an early look at just some of the rich content as it appeared earlier today during the pre-packout process.
