Panini America officials raised more than a few eyebrows when they announced in early March the addition of 2012-13 Brilliance Basketball to the NBA product roster. But for the product itself, they raised a lot more than than that. By incorporating some good, old-fashioned embossing, mirror board stock and intricate design and type treatments, Panini America's creative folks delivered a…

A Big Flocking Deal: Texture Tells the Story in 2012-13 Past & Present Basketball

The hobby hits keep coming on the Panini America basketball court. Indeed, when 2012-13 Absolute Basketball releases tomorrow, it will mark the continuation of one of most most torrid scoring streaks in hoops hobby history, a month-long span that has seen the launch of 2012-13 Totally Certified, 2012-13 Prizm and 2012-13 Limited. Now along comes Absolute -- after a year…

A Panini America Teaser Gallery: The First Box of 2012-13 Prizm Basketball Retail

Much has been made -- already -- about the enchanting Green Prizm parallels coming exclusively to the retail version of 2012-13 Prizm Basketball when it goes live next week. So, while hardcore hoops collectors have spent the last week feasting on the hobby version (and it's Gold Prizms in particular), the brand seems poised for another huge boost when Prizm's retail counterpart…

The Panini America Quality Control Gallery: 2012-13 Prizm Basketball (96 New Pics)

Sure, I could consult my thesaurus -- again! -- in an effort to fetch more fancy adjectives that describe the near-indescribable allure of Panini America's 2012-13 Prizm Basketball. But the buildup to this point is such that the 96-card Quality Control gallery that follows really needs no introduction. Most of the Prizm previews we've shared to date have come from…

The Panini America Quality Control Gallery: 2012-13 Prestige Basketball (64 Images)

It's been way too long since hardcore hoops collectors have had the opportunity to collect a Prestige-branded basketball product.
