2012-13 Innovation Basketball Main

Look, you don’t name a trading card release “Innovation” without being able to back up such a title with content. So when Panini America’s NBA Product Development team set out to devise the so-named 2012-13 Innovation Basketball, well, they knew they had to bring it. So what they’re bringing, among other things, is the spectacular Stained Glass insert (printed on colored, textured acetate), the terrifically transparent Rookie View RCs and the massively swatched Rookie Prime Jerseys.

The product is slated to arrive in mid August boasting a 200-card base set that includes 25 View and 75 Rookie View, and each eight-card box will deliver three autograph or memorabilia cards.

2012-13 Innovation Basketball is bolstered by a bevy of bright, vivid inserts, headlined by the likes of All-Rookies, Innovators, ProducersPassing Grade, Efficiency, Swat Team and Pride of the NBA. You want more of Innovation’s innovations? Try the Innovative Ink insert that combines 40 veteran stars and 60 rookies with autographs signed in gold or silver, and the Stat Line memorabilia cards featuring statistics and photos from the actual game the jersey on the card was worn.

We’ll have much more on 2012-13 Innovation Basketball right here on The Knight’s Lance in the coming weeks. But for now, enjoy this extended first look at the product via the preview gallery that follows:
