News flash: Panini America’s popular Court Kings art-inspired autograph cards are making a royal return to the hobby. And they’re making a comeback in the same product that will include the company’s first backboard-inspired thick-glass cards. It’s an elite collecting mix that calls for an elite brand name: In late May, NBA collectors will be treated to the premiere edition of Elite Series Basketball.

2012-13 Elite Series Basketball will deliver re-imagined versions of many of Elite’s most popular inserts, including Passing the Torch Autographs, Aspirations and Status die-cuts, and a new array of Inscriptions autographs from rookies and current superstars. But one key point of differentiation between Elite Series and Elite is this product’s upscale configuration: Four autographs and one Elite Glass card in every 10-card box.

The product’s 275-card base set is bolstered by 14 insert sets (including seven that are autographed), featuring the 100-card Court Kings, the dramatically designed Court Vision, Rookie Elite Series and many more. We’ll have much more to share regarding 2012-13 Elite Series Basketball in the coming weeks right here on The Knight’s Lance.

But until then, enjoy this first look at Panini America’s exciting new product . . .

  1. Interesting looking product, I’d like to see one of those glass cards live to see just how thick they are. Thanks Tracy!
