The Panini America Quality Control Gallery: 2013-14 Titanium Basketball (90 Images)
Yesterday we brought you a tip-of-the-iceberg teaser of 2013-14 Titanium Basketball. Today, as promised, we’re bringing you a whole lot more. Last week, the Panini America NBA Product Development team spent quality time over several days packing out the debut release that arrives in hobby shops this Friday.
In addition to delivering some of the lowest-numbered Rookie Cards of the season (including cards numbered to a player’s jersey number, overall draft position, last two numbers of a player’s draft year and parallels numbered to 22, the atomic number for titanium, five and one), 2013-14 Titanium Basketball also will include Hot Boxes.
Each regular box of the hit-per-pack 2013-14 Titanium Basketball will deliver two autographs and three memorabilia cards. But thanks to a limited production run, the product will now deliver one Hot Box in every eight-box inner case. Each Hot Box will include one additional memorabilia card — and of the four memorabilia cards in that box, one will feature either a superstar player or a patch.
Some other interesting nuggets about 2013-14 Titanium Basketball:
- On average, patch cards will fall at a rate of 3.5 per case
- Nearly 13,000 on-card autographs, almost 5,000 Prime and Laundry Tag memorabilia cards and 776 unique 1/1s
- Live autographs of Kyrie Irving, Scottie Pippen, Stephen Curry, Tony Parker, Anthony Davis, Karl Malone, Grant Hill, John Stockton, Jerry West, Elgin Baylor, Blake Griffin, Penny Hardaway, Michael Carter-Williams, Victor Oladipo and more
We’ll have additional coverage of 2013-14 Titanium Basketball later this week right here on The Knight’s Lance. But for now, sit back and enjoy some quality time with the Quality Control Gallery.
