Yesterday we brought you a tip-of-the-iceberg teaser of 2013-14 Titanium Basketball. Today, as promised, we’re bringing you a whole lot more. Last week, the Panini America NBA Product Development team spent quality time over several days packing out the debut release that arrives in hobby shops this Friday.
In addition to delivering some of the lowest-numbered Rookie Cards of the season (including cards numbered to a player’s jersey number, overall draft position, last two numbers of a player’s draft year and parallels numbered to 22, the atomic number for titanium, five and one), 2013-14 Titanium Basketball also will include Hot Boxes.
Each regular box of the hit-per-pack 2013-14 Titanium Basketball will deliver two autographs and three memorabilia cards. But thanks to a limited production run, the product will now deliver one Hot Box in every eight-box inner case. Each Hot Box will include one additional memorabilia card — and of the four memorabilia cards in that box, one will feature either a superstar player or a patch.
Some other interesting nuggets about 2013-14 Titanium Basketball:
- On average, patch cards will fall at a rate of 3.5 per case
- Nearly 13,000 on-card autographs, almost 5,000 Prime and Laundry Tag memorabilia cards and 776 unique 1/1s
- Live autographs of Kyrie Irving, Scottie Pippen, Stephen Curry, Tony Parker, Anthony Davis, Karl Malone, Grant Hill, John Stockton, Jerry West, Elgin Baylor, Blake Griffin, Penny Hardaway, Michael Carter-Williams, Victor Oladipo and more
We’ll have additional coverage of 2013-14 Titanium Basketball later this week right here on The Knight’s Lance. But for now, sit back and enjoy some quality time with the Quality Control Gallery.

Very nice stuff. I probably can’t afford it. Gonna have to watch people selling breaks to get me some of this product. I love the bulls stuff.
Looking good as always! Aloha from paradise!
A few things:
1) I want to see Joakim Noah’s reaction when he finds out that he is worthy of being on the same memorabilia card as Scottie Pippen!
2) I bet Rodney Stuckey will be happy to know that he’s on a double-double card, although he has none so far this year and only 7 in his career (to his defense, he’s only been in the league a few years).
3) Instead of the 24th element being strength, why not let Kobe take on the real 24th element: chromium. It’s a pretty sick metal as it is if you ask me!
Overall, I love this product and the design. It’s definitely affordable for what I believe the value could be here.
My only question is, are the base cards numbered as well? With only 20 cards per box, and 5 of them being autos/mems, that leaves 15 other cards, and I’m guessing 10 will be inserts (maybe 2 per pack) leaving about 1 base card falling per pack. So are even the base cards going to be short-prints?
Once again, I love this product. This product is the only good news I’ve gotten today after finding out I have a fractured back, bulging disc, pinched nerve, and a dislocated vertebra. I really hope I get the chance to win one if there’s a “Find It Friday” coming up! 😀
Between this and the other gallery, I’m very impressed. I don’t rip a lot of BKB, but this looks fun, and if the guy on the other post who said the MSRP was around $90/box is correct, I’m sure I’ll be giving this a try or two…or five…
How much is a box? Looks beautiful!
Nice stuff, reminds me a bit of Limited!
Is Ersan Ilyasova or Larry Sanders in this??
Loving the Eddie Jones on card autograph with its Lakers uniform!
The numbering of some of the “inserts” or Parallels seems confusing… sometimes #’d to the Draft Pick…..other times to the Draft year……
Those are different parallels, Jim. There are parallels numbered to jersey number, overall draft position, and last two years of the draft year. In addition, there’s a parallel numbered to 22 (the atomic number of titanium), numbered to five and numbered to one.
What is the point of using the same player picture on the same side of the same card twice? (Electric Endorsements). Syncing two photos together (perhaps one action shot, one still shot) would be more artistic. This just seems lazy.
Hello ! Great cards !
Could you please put the checklist online as soon as possible ?
It’d be nice to see Jason Collins in upcoming products.
