Panini America's basketball big-hitters just keep coming. While many collectors still are enjoying the primest of pulls from recently released products such as 2012-13 Momentum Basketball, 2012-13 Past & Present Basketball and 2012-13 Preferred Basketball, the company has another must-bust NBA release planned to drop on Wednesday: 2012-13 Brilliance Basketball.
Panini America’s basketball big-hitters just keep coming. While many collectors still are enjoying the primest of pulls from recently released products such as 2012-13 Momentum Basketball, 2012-13 Past & Present Basketball and 2012-13 Preferred Basketball, the company has another must-bust NBA release planned to drop on Wednesday: 2012-13 Brilliance Basketball.
From a pure aesthetics standpoint, Brilliance boasts an enchanting combination of surface textures, old-fashioned embossing and finely finished surfaces that should appeal to collectors in completely different ways than the other products mentioned above. There’s also a wealthy share of autograph and memorabilia inclusions in Brilliance that will find a permanent home in many a collection.
The following 82-card gallery should provide an ample idea of what to expect from the quite brilliant 2012-13 Brilliance Basketball. Stay tuned to The Knight’s Lance for additional coverage of the product later this week.

What do the Starburst and Artists Proofs look like?? Also, what are the Above and Beyond set and what do those look like? There was no mention of it on the sellsheet
Panini Brilliance Has Its own unique quality!
BEING emBOSSed is super cool.
Those jumbo game worn and the patches that comes on mind would be sick to pull!
Another Panini That will be showcased on our youtube channel!
Now lets see Who is Boss…
Thanks Tracy for that cool preview it gives more clarification who is boss
Love the “Marks of Brilliance” autographs of the former players. Would love to get one of those guys like Stevie Franchise!
The one with the letters do they spell out there names?
Brilliantly designed! What do the letters on some of the cards stand for: like S on Lebron James’s card?
They spell the players’ names.
Oh ok thanks-
Thats funny. I hade made a mock card of Blake Griffin that I sent to Panini called Above and Beyond…did they get that from me?
Nice! Love the big jersey window, should be some cool patches in these product. Also, gotta love the Steve ‘Franchise’ Auto!
Looks great!! looked at a checklist…no pippen!! even better! i finally get to give my wallet a rest! #brokepippenking
🙂 See, we’re looking out for you, man.
Ooooh I want that Quincy Acy! Gonna have to get it to add to the collection
I think I just had some type of brilliance enduced stroke bough on by pure awesomeness. Love those large swatches that pop off because of the foil. The raised contours on the base cards are a very nice touch that help make them look that little bit more classy. Great to see the Autographs centered as well!
Thanks for the preview!
oh love it man. really love the looks of the inserts. and the letters, this is so great. great job team panini, and thanks for the preview tracy 🙂
Appreciate the kind words, Ed. Appreciate the reblog, too.
Reblogged this on NimitzBlog and commented:
The All-NEW 12/13 Brilliance Basketball brings out some nice twists on the inserts, including the letter cards. They spell the player’s name.
Really can’t wait. Coming very soon on Nimitz Collectibles.
Solid looking release so far, digging the oversized memorabilia swatches. Admittedly I only skimmed the gallery though, I have a gut feeling there will be a contest where I’ll be studying these more in depth in the future. Thanks Tracy!
Like how the memorabilia looks. Even a plain color swatch says BAM!
