Panini Peek: 2013-14 Intrigue Basketball
Out of all of the never-been-done-before NBA products that Panini America introduced during the 2012-13 season, perhaps none was more intriguing than Intrigue. And when collectors had the opportunity to dig deeper into that product when it released last September, the thing that seemed to resonate with them the most was the dazzling, completely microetched chase of the Intriguing Players insert. But for 2013-14 Intrigue Basketball, Panini America is cutting those out. Literally.
When the second installment of the product releases in late April, collectors will immediately notice a difference in the Intriguing Players insert: Die-cutting on 20 of the NBA’s top players who are featured with multiple collectible variations numbered to as low as one. Every 11-card box of 2013-14 Intrigue Basketball will deliver four autograph or memorabilia cards and five Intriguing Players.
2013-14 Intrigue Basketball also features . . .
- Four unique autograph memorabilia inserts, including the sport’s all-time greats in Hall Dwellers Autographs.
- Four unique on-card autographs inserts, including the game’s top aerial acrobats in Slam Ink.
- The return of dual, trio and quad memorabilia cards grouping the game’s best players together.
