Art Appreciation: Peeking Panini America’s 2013-14 Court Kings Basketball (Gallery)
Late last week we brought you the splendid first look at Panini America’s upcoming 2013-14 Court Kings Basketball, the first standalone release of the impressive, art-inspired brand since the 2009-10 season. The overwhelmingly positive response to that post in the last four days has served to raise the pre-release expectations for Court Kings. The following pre-ink preview should send those expectations even higher.
Today, the Panini America NBA Acquisitions team began the process of acquiring thousands of on-card autographs for 2013-14 Court Kings Basketball by expediting a varied and vibrant selection of hot-off-the-presses cards (including the Fresh Paint, Impressionist Ink, Court Kings Autographs and oversized box-toppers) to NBA stars past and present across the league.
As you’ll see in the gallery that follows, Court Kings offers a true lesson in art appreciation. From simulated canvas textures to a captivating splash of colors, Court Kings’ many hard-signed cards will deliver an unparalleled feast for the eyes. Enjoy the gallery and stay tuned to The Knight’s Lance for updates as the following cards are returned for packout.
