  1. Limited is always a highlight in any sport’s release calendar and this looks to be no different. These are some spectacular previews and I’m sure there will be more to come! Thanks Tracy!

  2. YES!!!! I cant wait for the first chance to pull a Rookie Redemption!!! I love how you guys are incorperating 2011/2012 rookie class AND 2012/2013 rookie class!! I like the idea and i hope i pull one of those #1 draft picks redemptions from either year! This years rookie class is so DEEP and its going to be great!!! Keep the Pics coming Tracy!

    1. I agree, these redemptions should be a nice score. On draft day it will be interesting to see who you end up with.

  3. Tracy, just to save time, are any of the following players in this set: Byron Scott, Dominique Wilkins, any Milwaukee Bucks besides Brandon Jennings and Rasheed Wallace? 🙂

  4. Wow that kobe is beautiful! I’m looking forward to the Rookies too 🙂
    Any ideas when the release date for this may be?

  5. Please tell me Ersan Ilyasova is in the Glass Cleaners set?!? He’s been beasting the past 2 months or so so I hope you guys get him in some more products and maybe get some autographs and memorabilia cards of him since he hasn’t had any since 2006/07!

  6. Redemptions aren’t Panini’s strongest suit… so I hope you guys turn these around before the next year of rookies come through!
    Limited has been a bit boring in the past, with every card having the same kind of refractory finish. The Glass Cleaners look nice, as long as the Trios aren’t ‘trapped’ Signatures then this could be a winner.

    1. Appreciate the feedback. We have a new CS manager on board and are working hard every day to not only get redemptions filled, but to reduce new ones going forward. It is a work in progress but it is improving and will continue to do so.

  7. Trophy case looks sick. Love the Glass Cleaners. What an incredible angle for a pic. Did a photographer sit on the back board??? 🙂
    Been getting back into basketball again. Thanks a lot Panini 😉
