Gaining Momentum: Panini America Shares New Addition to 2012-13 NBA Roster
The Panini America NBA Product Development team has taken a page from the playbook of its NFL brethren and tweaked it — considerably. So while football collectors who crossover to basketball will notice many aesthetic similarities between 2012 Momentum Football and the upcoming 2012-13 Momentum Basketball, they’ll notice some huge differences when the hoops version releases in late April, too.
Most notably, they’ll notice the presence of five autograph cards in every 15-card pack — an ink-heavy configuration that should add a decided pop to a product that will carry a $200 pack SRP.
2012-13 Momentum Basketball features a 300-card base set (including 85 Rookie Cards) and three unique autograph inserts (Momentous Autographs, Momentous Rookies Autographs and Monumental Marks). The most substantial of those is the massive Monumental Marks that’s slated to include 300 cards.
Other preliminary highlights of the product include the uniquely die-cut Force insert and the etched-foil brilliance of the Drive parallel. We’ll have tons more to share on 2012-13 Momentum Basketball as the April 8 ship date approaches, so stay tuned to The Knight’s Lance for updates. But for now, enjoy this preliminary sneak peek:
