Inside Flawless: Jumbo Patches Pack ‘Wow!’ Factor for 2012-13 Flawless Basketball
The trailer has been criticized, panned, applauded, scrutinized, laughed at and picked up by the mainstream media. The diamonds and emeralds have been previewed. Indeed, yesterday was a busy day for screening various aspects of Panini America’s 2012-13 Flawless Basketball. And now that yesterday is over, we can get down to peeking the myriad other pieces of flawlessness hand-placed into the product’s “sleek, Bond villain-esque” metal suitcases. (By the way, that’s not our description of the packaging, it’s how SI.com’s Extra Mustard described it, but we happen to love it.)
Today we’re going to pull the curtain back on the obscenely fantastic jumbo patch cards permeating the 2012-13 Flawless Basketball checklist. From Silver versions numbered to 25 all the way down to only one, the sickness of Flawless’ jumbo memorabilia selections simply can’t be overstated.
The following gallery delivers more than 80 pieces of supporting evidence. Enjoy, and stay tuned to The Knight’s Lance tomorrow when we preview some of the set’s most alluring ink.
