Panini Peek: 2012-13 Threads Basketball

June 20, 2012

As the abbreviated 2011-12 NBA season draws to a close with one of the most riveting NBA Finals in recent memory, Panini America has steadily kept one eye on returning to a full, Rookie Card-laden crop of products for the 2012-13 season.

We’ve already previewed 2012-13 NBA Hoops and 2012-13 Prestige to much fanfare; today, we take a look at the triumphant return of collector-favorite Threads Basketball after a year away.

First and foremost, 2012-13 Threads Basketball will deliver 100 RCs printed on wood stock and autographed on-card, and each box (five cards per pack, 24 packs per box) will yield three autograph cards and one memorabilia card.

Releasing October 3, Threads will be anchored by a 150-card base set and a robust RC program that includes players from both the 2011 and 2012 NBA Draft classes and new inserts such as Century Greats and High Flyers.

Headlining the autograph roster are notable inserts such as the popular die-cut Team Threads Signatures, Rookie Team Threads Signatures and Private Signings. The memorabilia lineup includes Authentic Threads, Prime Authentic Threads, Triple Threads and Prime Triple Threads.
