Undoubtedly one of the best products of Panini is the Preferred Basketball because of two things, the Silhouettes and the booklet jersey cards. Well not to mention the triangle cards (Panini Choice Awards), it’s also fun chasing those rainbow parallels. Anyway this product is on its way for this year and Knight’s Lance just gave us a glimpse of those jumbo patches.
Last year, I spent a lot for landing a Gordon Hayward Silhouette. The regular card is only limited to /10 and the price is not less than $50 while the patch version is /5 and I paid $310. Since I’m an aspiring Hayward super collector, I managed to buy two of those cards and at the moment of this writing, I’m bidding for another one and I hope it won’t end with the same price.
The only thing that Panini should do right this time is to eliminate the errors of their cards. Last year the 2010 draft class booklet got mixed up with 2009 class.
I should start saving money and hopefully Hayward will still have his Preferred Silhouettes.
