Inside NT: Panini America Adds Springfield Swatches, X Factor to Memorabilia Lineup

Panini America 2013-14 National Treasures Basketball Springfield Swatches Main

The Knight’s Lance tipped off Panini America’s official countdown to the August 20 release of 2013-14 National Treasures Basketball yesterday with a revealing look at the highly anticipated product’s new Treasured Tags insert. Today, our countdown continues with a captivating examination of the all-new Springfield Swatches and X Factor game-worn memorabilia inserts and the new-look Timelines memorabilia insert.

On this particular weekend (what with the Naismith Memorabilia Basketball Hall of Fame inducting its 2014 class and with Panini America’s own Scott Prusha and Ivory Tabb  on location in Springfield, Mass.), previewing the history-soaked Springfield Swatches is a no-brainer. We think you’ll find many of the swatches in question to be absolutely mind-blowing.

In addition, the prime versions of the deftly designed X Factor and extra-thick, vertically oriented Timelines featured below are also sure to resonate with hardcore National Treasures loyalists. Enjoy the gallery, enjoy your weekend and stay tuned to The Knight’s Lance for additional reveals in the coming days.

  1. Like the Springfield Swatches, not really a fan of the Timelines cards. Dont like how thick they are and the design doesnt really incorporate a “timeline” like it has in years past.

    Also, can we get a look at a complete Checklist for NT please??? Obviously you guys have one since the product is packing out. A lot of us get irritated that we have to wait until the release day or sometimes a day after to see product Checklists. Why the hold up???

  2. Wow!!!!!!! Amazing!!!!!!! Absolutely insane! I can’t wait to crack open my box! I already pre-ordered one but after this gallery I might make it two boxes! Keep up the great work Panini!

  3. Great gallery of old school mem, I always wonder how these get unearthed after all this time. Do some of the players just decide to part with them eventually? Thanks Tracy!
