April is playoff time in NBA where the real game begins and at the same time on that month, Panini will treat us with 2013/14 Panini Basketball. What I like on this product is the SSP Knights of the Round die-cut set and the Rated Rookie patch card which will also be returning this year.
The product will feature both hobby and retail versions — with enough exclusive content in each to keep fans and collectors on the chase. Releasing in early April, 2013-14 Panini Basketball will deliver two autographs per box at hobby (10 cards per pack, 24 packs per box) and one autograph or Rookie Jerseys card per box in regular retail (eight cards per pack, 24 packs per box).
Other retail configurations include Blasters and Rak Paks.
Some of the most captivating inserts from last year’s Panini Basketball release return for the new season, headlined by Knights of the Round die-cut chase cards and Black Knights 1/1s. The product also will be bolstered by the return of the always-popular Rated Rookie Signatures numbered to 100 or less.
Other product highlights include . . .
Superstar Signatures: The lights shine brightest on the best, and Superstar Signatures features only the best. Ten NBA stars numbered to 199 or less.
Favorites: Search for the ultra-rare Favorites insert featuring players who have charmed their fans for years.
Rising Tide Autographs: The future looks bright for the budding stars in this uniquely designed insert.
An autograph lineup that includes rookies, stars, Hall of Famers and coaches.
Look for retail-exclusive content such as Rookie Jerseys, Panini Game Jerseys and Red Knight parallels.
