Default Idea for Cards

I don't know if this has ever been done, but instead of redemptions for crappy sticker auto cards you have to wait a year for; why not have redemptions for cooler things that you cannot pull in packs. Game used jerseys, sneakers, tickets to games, trips, a box, a CASE.. desirable basketball related items that can be authenticated.

I saw in a thread somewhere that Panini revenue is in the billions, you would think they could spice up their products with items like this.

I mean, they could do that, but then this wouldn't really be sports cards would it?

I would like to see them incorporate tickets from famous games into cards; like NBA Finals Championship Game with MJ, Lebron (just examples, I know UD is exclusive to these two), etc... auto. The first game of someone's career, etc.. I think there are lots of stuff that Panini can do to create new ideas.

I do want to say, that the video cards are a stupid idea.

Topps did this last year (at least) with Allen & Ginter. Game used Jerseys, Pants, Gloves, etc.

I guess UD/Panini don't have the inventory or funds to purchase the inventory necessary.

Sticker autos are cheap

Panini does have some cool redemptions like meet-and-greets with players and video/gold cards, but I don't see them loosening their pockets to give away entire game-used memorabilia, especially when one jersey can supply the memorabilia for a player in 2-3 products.

I like the idea of getting a game ticket with the chance to meet your favorite ballplayer or retired ballplayer and getting an IP auto from them and having it authenticated on spot.

Like the idea, but I think UD/Panini are too cheap, to do any of this. I do like how Panini did the golden tickets in their Gold Standard boxes though. Thought that was a good idea
