An Immaculate Start: Panini America Offers Update on 2012-13 Immaculate Basketball

September 23, 2013

Panini America 2012-13 Immaculate Basketball Peek (37)

2012-13 Immaculate Basketball is coming. That’s certainly no surprise to the seemingly countless basketball collectors who’ve been buzzing about the product since we first previewed it here on The Knight’s Lance last month. In the five weeks since, the product has come quite a long way.

Not only have the cards slated to receive hard autographs been produced and carefully delivered to Panini America HQ, many have already come full circle — expedited to the NBA legends on them, autographed and returned for packout.

The following must-see gallery details a little bit of all of that: Some hard-signed gems coming soon to an Immaculate pack and some as-yet-unsigned gems likely in their respective player’s possession as we speak. We’ll have plenty more Immaculate eye candy to share in the coming days and weeks; but since we know the excitement level for this product is off the charts, we wanted to whet your appetite as soon as possible.

Enjoy the gallery and stay tuned to The Knight’s Lance for updates.

    If this product is priced lower than NT, then why does it look like it’s sporting all on-card autos? NT had a TON of stickers.

    Jaw dropping. i’m stunned.

    There really are no words to describe how amazing all of these cards look

    Would you be able to tell me if Ilyasova, Mbah a Moute, or Larry Sanders are in this??

    Dacardworld has this on their site as product releases on 30th october? Is that correct?
    That would mean the new 13-14 nba season has already started and still a 12-13 product?!
    And Hoops 13-14 will release before that?

  12. September 23, 2013 5:36 pm

    Very impressive!!! Between Immaculate and Flawless, I have to save up a bit to grab a few of these cards. Nice job.

  13. September 23, 2013 6:29 pm

    amazing looking

  14. September 23, 2013 7:25 pm

    Awesome looking cards, by the looks the title winners are numbered to championships won.

    Will there be a Jordan??

    Wouls love that Mourning card – gold signature really sets it off

    Wow I’ve waited years for a Larry Johnson logoman and here it is!!! I can’t wait to get a chance to own this one for my L J collection. Thanks Panini, great job with the new LJ picture on this card too. I love it and keep them coming…..wish it was a little more centered on the card, but I’m not complaining.

    Wow this is without a doubt the best looking Basketball release you have shown us on the blog for quite a while everything about it just clicks!

    I have never been so excited about a release ever. Can’t wait to get some boxes and see what unique items there may be. Any behind the scenes videos for these being put together?

    Simply stunning. I’m blinded by the brilliance, and wish I were in another tax bracket.
    Sticker autos, just like redemptions… and I have seen a far fewer number of those in recent products, are an unpalatable but necessary evil if collectors are to get the autos they seek.

    Very nice looking cards. I think this could be the win of the 12-13 season.

    sweet looking set – might be easier to just call it Innovation Series II

    That looks like a mixed monster coming out. Spectrum foiled border remains me Ultimate Collection. Huge patch on card autograph card must be the limited logos, and the black champion trophy card recalls UD black. If most cards in this set are on card autograph, $400 a box is a great deal. Definitely the best design since Panini entered basketball.

    very impressive! The Panini NBA kicked some serious butt in the double rookie class year

      Are you serious? You must not have opened much of the 12-13 products. You’d be singin’ a different tune.

    Out all those I actually like the Steve Kerr best, he’s got a great signature and the photo is excellent. Thanks Tracy!

    Immaculate is the perfect word that describes this Stunning gallery!! This is by far the Best NBA product I have EVER seen!!! Great job Panini and I mean GREAT job!

    Just some amazing designs on those cards. The Title Winners Set looks very similar to a set from a different product many yrs ago! Glad to see something like that again. Hopefully I’ll be able to get my hands on a Bird or Magic! Great Stuff Tracy.

    Way to close out the ‘2012-13’ line of products. Already pre-ordered my cases!

    KD is Panini spokesperson, why is he always a REDEMPTION? hopefully in Flawless and Immaculate his auto cards are live
