Default Panini America Teases Base-Set Variations for 2011-12 Past & Present Basketball

Panini America Teases Base-Set Variations for 2011-12 Past & Present Basketball

April 30, 2012 at 1:14 PM



Add this to the list of throwback thrills slated to permeate 2011-12 Past & Present Basketball when it releases on May 16: Short-printed base-set variations — sure to be among the most sought after nuances in Panini America’s masterful mashup of old-school design elements and modern printing technologies.

In all, 50 players on the Past & Present checklist will be represented with base-set variation SPs, a generation-spanning selection of today’s hottest superstars and yesterday’s greatest legends. We offer a scene-setting sneak peak of just some of those SPs (fronts and backs) in the gallery that follows.

These actually look pretty decent, but why do they keep showcasing base & inserts..who's going to pay $100 just because an insert has some fire panini found off Clipart on it <_<

Not sure what I'm supposed to be looking at. All I see are cheap looking base cards.

I kind of liked the inserts. I'm hoping they SP them, though. That's the whole draw of inserts. If they're one-per-pack, they're essentially base cards. But the base cards are a little blah. I generally like cards with an old school look (A&G, Heritage, Gypsy Queen, etc.), but I'm not a fan of an old-looking card with a brand-new/high-quality-looking player picture. It's like mix-and-match.

i understand for retro sometimes, like topps did with turkey red or in baseball with heritage or t206 or whatever, but this past and present set has looked soo ugly. every insert set or gallery that they've shown has been awful IMO. i can see that some collectors will want it for the history or nostalgia , but the product as a whole will tank since it doesnt have mass appeal

Not the worst design for base cards, but this product for the price is a big stinker. This year Panini is killing basketball cards.
