Why do people hate Panini so much?
 
I just want to see what people on here think about Panini and why most people are not fans of Panini.

I really don't have a problem with them I just wish that the NBA would allow UD and Topps to make cards. I hate exclusive liscencing when it comes to cards. Since I mainly buy low end product from stores it drastically reduces my choices.

kingofsnake 08-28-2012 11:55 AM

For me, the biggest reason is the exclusivity. Because Panini is the only game in town, it means we collectors miss out on sets like SP Authentic, Topps Chrome, Stadium Club, E-X, Exquisite, Ultimate, Bowman - you name it. Variety is a good thing.

because their cards look like a 10 year old designed them and made them...

Major_League 08-28-2012 12:13 PM

* Redemption after Redemption.
* UGLY Product
* Redemption's that never ship
* Sticker Sticker Sticker
* Cheaply made products

What's to like really?

xavieronly1 08-28-2012 12:24 PM

I don't like Panini design on most cards.. just like I don't like how Upper Deck runs the greedy company in recent years.

patchgenie 08-28-2012 12:25 PM

Non game used rookie autos in their highest end product. just jerseys touched for 1 second each.
sticker autos in high end
boring designs for the most part(yawn)
manufactured logoman:rolleyes:
no real history with their products like UD and Topps had.
manufactured logo patch with cut out window for the auto(contenders)
redemptions

Good things:
Nice design in NT(last year's was very nice)
Limited has great design and nice Next Day autos that everyone likes(including the seasons update ones)
Nicknames insert auto set was pretty cool

I hate Panini because 96% of the cards that they make are rubbish. Additionally, Tracy Hackler is a chump.

vc15jrich23 08-28-2012 12:33 PM

People just like to complain about anything. If it was Upper Deck they would complain about the price or the same checklists Bird/Johnson dual autos Lebron/Jordan dual autos. There will always be a reason.

Yep. Panini is absolutely wonderful and no one has any reason to dislike them. We all just dislike them for something to complain about. :rolleyes:

did people complain as much about UD as they do panini now?

no they didn't.

yes their were complaints here and there but panini has been a nightmare.

Actually, this message board probably had more Upper Deck 'hate' threads back then, than Panini 'hate' threads today.

From top to bottom their cards don't differe much from Upper Deck. Panini is a European company. European business models and marketing stategies are different than we are used to.

hotbox 08-28-2012 12:48 PM

Does Panini's basketball license expire at some point? I miss Upper Deck and Topps basketball products...

I wasn't on this board during UD peak but others I was on had 'hate' threads but different kind and not as many as Panini seems to have.

I remember a lot of UD customer service blows. they screwed me on redemption. blah blah blah.

panini complaints are more like 'their cards are crap'. haha

i guess there was a fair share of complaints for both but i think panini complaints are mostly about crappy designs which i think is a huge deal in the hobby.

People complain about every brand. I never said they were wonderful people just like to find the negatives about them and not the good thing's.

Still waiting for your huge list of positives?

pakman916 08-28-2012 12:55 PM

Funny thing is, everyone hates all the companies for one thing or another. But we keep buying...lining pockets...companies keep producing more horrible products....it's a vicious cycle.

I agree with everyone here in that I hate exclusivity. I'd rather have them all make competing products that I can choose from.

I don't mind Panini. Their products may suck, but after the past National, I feel they were more about the collector than Topps. The same with UD. Topps just seems clueless and aimless. But they hold the cards...literally.

Been more specific? Complain about "what"? No company is perfect. There are always something we dislike. I'm sorry, I don't kiss any company's butt.

I halfway agree. The quality in design and product is few and far between. For instance, the latest preview of inserts are beyond ugly, boring and simple. They are shameful. On the other hand they have put out some really beautiful designs. (Still not on upper decks level) but quality. Overall, Panini just doesn't seem to put much effort into their products and it definately shows. But being a bball collector I have no other options for new stuff. Sucks, tis life.

Yup I agree with this. Panini has no competition and people still buy their crap/ok products so they don't feel the need to up their game any.

I believe that they signed a four year exclusive at the 2009-10 season, so it should expire after the 2012-13 season.

My apologies for not posting right away, I am sorry I needed to eat breakfast and take a dump, if I had known you were waiting I would have taken a picture of it and sent it to you. :)!

Anyways there are some nice cards out there (not enough nice ones for me to buy a box but pick up singles) like this

[url=http://www.ebay.com/itm/Rodney-Stuckey-2012-13-Panini-Gold-Standard-Bullion-Brand-Jersey-Tag-Patch-1-2-/261087025690?pt=US_Basketball&hash=item3cc9ffda1a]Rodney Stuckey 2012/13 Panini Gold Standard Bullion Brand Jersey Tag Patch #1/2! | eBay[/url]

then nice stuff like these patches (for the whole set too im not just posting this because I collect VC)

[url=http://www.ebay.com/itm/Vince-Carter-11-12-Panini-Gold-Standard-Black-Prime-Patch-2-3-/221115484036?pt=US_Basketball&hash=item337b828784]Vince Carter 11-12 Panini Gold Standard Black Prime Patch #2/3 | eBay[/url]

then of course the silhouettes are nice and finally there was a thread in the football section where panini sent a guy a couple of Barry Sander's autographed photos to auction off for his son's cancer. (I can't find the thread anymore) Also I have never seen any other companies do that (not saying that they have not done it, I just have not seen it)

and just so you are not waiting all day, I do have a life and have things to do today instead of staying on blowout like you seem to do so if you are waiting you will be waiting a long time or best bet just don't waste time on it anymore :)!

As we all know the basketball collecting community is the smallest group of collectors. However, the number of collectors in 2008 (example only) is much higher than today. Why? Because Panini is the only company manufacturing basketball cards. So of course in 2008, there would be more complaints with Upper Deck, the number of collectors has declined since Panini became the only manufacturer.

SportsItUpCards 08-28-2012 02:45 PM

For some it's the real reasons mentioned here.........

But for others, it's just because they like what they see but they will never admit it because they would like for their cards to be king of the world lol smh :rolleyes:

The fast is, Panini is making some of the best cards this hobby has ever seen, and that's that. Nothing these people can do about it, except for hate on them all the time and pretend that they're terrible, when they are not.

They're affraid their precious cards will go down in value, which they WILL. So they stay on forums all day long hating on Panini.... it's very sad honestly.

Panini is getting it done no matter what the haters say. And i'm not talking about people will legit reasons for not liking them, such as redemtpion probalems and all the legit reasons.... like I said above, i'm talking about the trouble makers who come here only to bad mouth Panini, and most of those trouble makers are my "fans" and they know I like Panini, so they love to bad mouth it..... again, it's a very sad life for them to have, but oh well. Funny at times of the sadness level :)
