This is no ordinary Knight's Lance first look at an upcoming Panini America product. No, a product like 2013-14 Immaculate Basketball calls for something . . . special. Immaculate Basketball erupted onto the scene last season by commanding collector attention like few other premiere products ever have. From its massive game-worn memorabilia cards to its acetate-influenced and autographed SPs, 2012-13 Immaculate Basketball was an instant classic. So, how can Panini America possibly top that rookie juggernaut?

From its massive game-worn memorabilia cards to its acetate-influenced and autographed SPs, 2012-13 Immaculate Basketball was an instant classic. So, how can Panini America possibly top that rookie juggernaut?
Well, with an Immaculate encore, of course. 2013-14 Immaculate Basketball is slated to arrive in hobby shops on September 3 boasting five autograph or memorabilia cards in every six-card box; it also delivers many of the now-legendary inserts that fanned the flames of last season’s success.
To be sure, the highlights are many and include . . .
- Autographed NBA Logoman cards of stars from yesterday, today and tomorrow.
- Massive prime swatches of memorabilia from your favorite player’s game-worn jerseys, including Nameplate, Jersey Number, Team Logo, Patches and Insignias chases.
- Unique gold-ink autographs in Scorers Club, Elite Scorers Club, The Greatest and HOF Heroes inserts.
- Rookie Logoman Autographs Booklets feature the hottest rookie combos of the 2013-14 season in one-of-a-kind booklets.
- The return of the vaunted Rookie Patch Autographs RCs.
- The opportunity for collectors to own full letters from the nameplates of game-worn jerseys in the Nameplate Nobility insert. (Think you can assemble the whole name?)
- The spectacular addition of the unique Sole of the Game insert featuring the tread from selected stars’ game-worn sneakers.
In the preview gallery that follows, we provide an early look at several mock-ups for 2013-14 Immaculate Basketball. But we told you at the top that this wasn’t your normal preview post — and it’s not. After the mock-ups, we follow up with an explosive array of on-card autographs that have already been returned for inclusion in the product.
It’s absolutely must-see stuff. Just be advised, you might want to be seated first. Stay tuned to The Knight’s Lance for continued coverage.

Patiently waiting for some D.Rose cards! lol
It’s tough to get game used stuff when he doesn’t play
The Product looks great but lets get a show of hands of who wants to hit a Tracy McGrady Card really??? I would be very upset if I hit him in my box.
Ryan Newnam, high ends of stuff actually sells really well. If you hit one of those, I guarantee you’ll be making your way to the bank. I would love to have one of those.
yeah i know right? who would want to hit an auto of a 7 time NBA all star who led the league in scoring twice and has scored 18300+ points?
his spectra patch autos is selling for 100+.. a lot of good followers for tmac..especiallyits in his rap jersey ? i think that will sell well if youre trying to sell…
PLEASE someone let me know if KEITH VAN HORN is in this product!
when are you showing us flawless ?
As soon as I can.
also, can you start adding foils in the letter patches(nameplate nobility)? would be a good addition 🙂
Sole of the game is cool. send me something for that exchange 2 years ago please! Xrc? Iman shumpert gold standard
no iverson here tracy??? what are the base design?
Stay tuned for Iverson details. These are just the early returns.
Iverson needs the money (unfortunately), so I’m sure he signed. GO SIXERS!!!!
Hi Tracy, anything on Marshon Brooks in this series?
The premium McGrady match #4/10 is better than the 1/1 patch???? Do you guys see the patches before they go in? Could it be possibly swapped over?
The Scorer’s Club auto set is the standout for me in this gallery, very impressive design. Thanks Tracy!
You guys need to lean on Giannis to sign his FULL signature… the ‘GA’ autos look weak. The mock preview, full name looks killer. Amen.
I just got the Immaculate premium patches full – so excited to collect the next set + checklist !!! Great product
Got any pics?
Let’s hear it for T-Macullate Collection—stuff looks incredible Tracy—-can’t wait to see it in hand!
