Aside from redemption and sticker autographs, I don't really hate Panini.
I hope that they could get as many on-card autographs as possible for products, whether they are low- or high-end.
As for the NBA exclusive license, it won't end until at least after the 2016-17 season after the extension that they signed.
Currently collecting (basketball only): SkyBox Premium Autographics (1996-97 to 1999-00),
Stadium Club Co-Signers (1997-98, 1998-99), Topps Autographs (1997-98 to 1999-00),
Panini Private Signings (2010-11 onward), HOF on-card autographs, and anything that catches my eyes.
