The Panini America Quality Control Gallery: 2012-13 Signatures Basketball (71 Images)
Over the course of the last several days, the Panini America NBA Product Development Team has transformed the company’s printing facility across town into a bona fide hoops heaven. Between the pre-packout process for 2012-13 National Treasures Basketball and actually packing out 2012-13 Signatures Basketball, the team has no doubt handled — with gloves on, I might add — some of the most influential cards of the entire 2012-13 collecting season.
We’ll have much more on National Treasures, which begins packing out later this week, in the coming days. Today, however, is dedicated to the debut edition of Signatures, a product that lives up to its name by delivering three autograph cards and one Chase card numbered to 25 or less in every four-card box.
While most of the cards in Signatures boast a rich, high-gloss finish and intricate foil enhancements, many collectors are likely to find the unique Film Slide cards to be the product’s most captivating inclusions. To be fair, though, there are quite a few cards with captivating potential — and many of them are detailed in the Quality Control Gallery that follows.
2012-13 Signatures Basketball goes live everywhere one week from tomorrow, and you can bet that we’ll have additional coverage of the product right here on The Knight’s Lance in the coming days. Until then, though, the following eye candy should be enough to sustain you.
