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.
