Silhouette cards are amazing. Of my my all time favorite designs. Great job!
Um, lower right card, worth scanning all the images. Is that on card? Better than last year’s redemptions, for sure.
On-card indeed! Thought of you when I saw that one.
those Silhouette are amazing really glad u made them
they look amazing
That Faried patch auto is sick!!! Great looking stuff.
Preferred silhouettes look AMAZING! Any chance any of the Silhouette Prime from members of the 2011 class are game used?
Will check on that.
They are player-worn jerseys.
Hey Tracy I was wondering if Thomas Robinson will be in the set of rookie silhouettes?
Yes, sir. He’s in there.
sweet looking cards. Oh those Silo and Select wow. what a card!
Preferred looks great, love all of the on card autos.
Tracy, I’ve tried asking a couple times how many Prime Silhouettes will be falling per case on average? With the double rookie class it seems like there could be a few more of them in the product this year. Thanks for all of the updates, definitely excited for this product.
There’s been no ratio given to this point, but with more Rookie Silhouettes on the checklist, it would stand to reason that they would fall with somewhat greater frequency than last year.
Thanks, I imagined there might not be set numbers at this point, but figured it didn’t hurt to ask. Sorry to pry.
No worries at all.
Sweet looking ON Card autos. Very limited and nicely placed. Select And The Alpha Dog Preferred will be absolutely fun to open.
Thanks Tracy for the preview and all Panini staff great job!
Cool, colorful and shiny! Great stuff!
Any idea what product is coming out first Tracy? Preferred or Select? Both look really nice. Love the Anthony Davis Prizm like autograph and some of them Silhouettes are too nice. Thanks for the peak.
Select is first.
Ok…I’ve been hating on Panini releases up to this point… but ….these two sets look really really good! I love the Kevin Love auto with him slamming one home and the Kareem card featuring the famous sky-hook. That is good photography. Unlike many others, I like the design of the Choice Award cards. MUGGSY! Well done.
That Tyler Zeller card is slick!
Did they release a new “Redemption Report” this week? Can’t find one, last was March 1st, don’t they release one every Friday??? thanks
WoW, that was super,duper fast, thanks Tracy!!!
That’s funny. Think I was hitting “publish” right as you were leaving your comment.
LOL, Glad to see a few of mine are on the list this week!!! Anything on Russell Wilson stuff, any info appreciated, lot of us that can’t wait to get our Wilson auto stuff!!! Thanks again
These are some really great cards right here. I love the silhouette as does everybody else I hope there’s a Bill Walton silo this year!! Tracy you know any thing about that? >>Did you already release the ¢hę¢k£ï$t for preferred?<<
No checklist yet. As for a Walton Silhouette . . . I regret to inform you that he does not have any. But he does have Panini’s Choice autos.
The silhouettes are amazing. Love the action shots!
Any idea what uniform Grant Hill will appear in for Preferred? Thanks!
His Silhouette shows him with the Suns.
great use of the patches and always love chromium finish cards..thanks guys
Some great looking sets for hoops fans, can we expect a Select for football in the near future? Thanks Tracy!
I sure hope so.
Very nice indeed the Steve Smith patch pops right off the card and the tidy signature complements it perfectly. Love Byron Scott card very awesome picture.
This looks sick… dont think u will be able to top this with NT hahahaah
Any shumpert silo’s yet??
I started collecting last year and only had the chance to open one box of Preffered. It was a fun time although I didn’t get any major pulls. I enjoy the booklets a lot. By far my favorite thing I have seen so far has to be the jersey patches! Will any of these jersey cards be autoed also? Thanks!
Where can a US resident purchase Panini Liga ACB cards from Spain?
Beautiful collection, it’s nice that’s there isn’t any sticker autos this year. Is James Worthy in the checklist ?
I would love a box of this. Do you guys ever give out free boxes? That would be so awesome if I got one.
