The Immaculate Inspection: Panini America Peeks More 2012-13 Immaculate Basketball

November 9, 2013

Panini America 2012-13 Immaculate Basketball Part 2 (2)

The buzz from yesterday’s first extended post-packout peek at 2012-13 Immaculate Basketball is still being felt all the way up here in Toronto, where several members of the Panini America team are on site at the 2013 Toronto Fall Expo. And while we’re ready for a massive Saturday full of wrapper-redemptions, Redemption Trade-Up exchanges, Panini VIP Party qualifiers and more, we’re also prepared to keep the momentum rolling on Immaculate.

To that end, we provide the following gallery that includes our second extended preview of one of the year’s most anticipated new products. While yesterday’s examination included a focus on the spectacular “puzzle pieces” and Six Star Logo Booklets, today’s gallery highlights, among other things, some of the majestic single memorabilia cards from Immaculate’s Logos, Numbers and Insignia inserts.

Enjoy the images and stay tuned to The Knight’s Lance for continued coverage of 2012-13 Immaculate and the 2013 Toronto Fall Expo.

    This stuff looks fantastic! Pre-sale pricing has been hard to come by…what’s the MSRP on this stuff?

    That Howe card looks great! Couldn’t make it to the show yesterday or today, but my son and I will be dropping by your booth on Sunday with hockey boxes to break

    Not to beat a dead horse, but any word yet on why guys like Pippen and Vince Carter have patches from their most popular team, yet are wearing jersey’s from the Blazers and Mavericks?

    tracy, will there be a “case hit” on the product.. looking at the numbered autos of kobe/kd the no. of boxes of immaculate is higher than NT, no?

    again, when will you show the base cards?

    I know this is not necessarily related to the topic, but I was wondering if you guys still have any Expo packs left? I went to order a 2013 Hometown Heroes Baseball box for the Fall Heroes Pack and 12x Expo packs, but I get a quantity error on the Expo Packs? I was wondering if I can still go ahead and order? Thanks!

    why is a hockey player in this set…i dont know really anything about hockey so I’d be pretty upset if I pulled this. Can you maybe enlighten me on the significance of the Gordie Howe card.

    I also have a question about the Julyan Stone 1 of 1 auto, is that a separate set with just autographs or did you not have a logoman for him?

    These are some out of this world mem cards, that Iman Shumpert Knicks patch has a very retro feel to it. Thanks Tracy!

    These are better than Prime and I didn’t think that would be done. Not in this volume or so soon. The 1st to the secondary market will be great $..the latter probably not so great.

    The Panini logo was:
    Panini America 2012-13 Immaculate Basketball Part 2 (49)
    Yao Ming (10/25)

    Tracy, are the base-looking rookie patch autos the immaculate rookie auto patch set?

    Tracy and Karvin,
    Can you please let me know if the Immaculate David Robinson Title Winner Auto #1/1 is an error card since he did win two championship titles?

      Tracy and Karvin,
      Can you please provide me an update?

        I guess the Robinson card would technically be considered an error. But it doesn’t impact the print run since he signed only one.
