Panini America Offers Detailed First Look at 2013-14 Signatures Basketball (Gallery)
It would be no understatement to call last year’s debut edition of Signatures Basketball one of the sleeper products of the entire 2012-13 NBA product season. Last year’s late-season surprise didn’t have the hype of Panini America’s other new-addition headliners such as Flawless or Immaculate. But what 2012-13 Signatures Basketball lacked in pre-release buzz, it more than made up for with some great designs, the collector-favorite Film Autographs insert and some of the rarest chase cards of the year.
For the highly anticipated 2013-14 Signatures Basketball, Panini America officials have embraced all of those driving forces from last year’s debut; but they’ve also added a few new twists and completely overhauled the packaging configuration. The result is a familiar-feeling Signatures that packs the potential to deliver in a big way.
2013-14 Signatures Basketball will deliver two two-card packs per box, with boxes delivering two autographs, one Film card and one Chase insert. Also included in each box: One 2014 NBA Draft Exchange Card that will land collectors early XRCs of next season’s top draft picks.
Some of the product’s other highlights include . . .
- Rare Film Rookies Autographs from 25 of the NBA’s hottest 2013-14 rookies
- Seven new autograph inserts including History of the Hall Autographs and Franchise Graphs
- Chase Veterans and Chase Rookies inserts featuring some of the rarest cards of the season, all numbered to 25 or less
- Film Rookies offers unsigned versions of Panini America’s popular Film insert honoring the top rookies of 2013-14
We’ll have plenty more to preview on 2013-14 Signatures Basketball in the coming weeks right here on The Knight’s Lance. But for now, enjoy this first extended sneak peek:
