Default 2012-13 Contenders Basketball Preview.

I think this set will make a huge comeback based on the preview pics. They look nice.

Ugly as usual. Nothing good and many of the same stock photos they keep using over and over like the Bird picture. Ugh...

so is that hackler's wife that has to sit there and post comments in all these preview pages for them? i can't imagine any self respecting collector posting messages over there stroking off hackler and his flunkies.

I think these cards look decent. The design on that Blake patch though looks awful.

I don't understand how panini can put out an excellent contenders football set year after year and have so much trouble with basketball.

honestly the only good looking cards to me were the Blake patch and Kobe auto patch. Lets hope it's a good checklist.

The stuff looks decent - But what separates it from the other sets? Why is Panini so obsessed with the 24 pack / $100 Box ???

Because Bird cannot play Bball anymore thats why they are using that recycled photo of his (joke). But on the serious side that kobe and griffin patch looks nice. The centering of the patch is little bit annoying. And I hope we can see less sticker auto on this one that kills their cards and their msrp is outrageous.

The one thing I do like.......hard to find inserts:

In addition, the product also includes a pair of base insert sets with extremely long odds in Hall of Fame Contenders (one in 20 cases) and Throwback Rookie Tickets (one in 13 cases).



These look good and will be tough 1 in 20 cases!!!!

Cheers
Matt

It's nice to have a tough pull on a card, but they should have treated the cards from this set with some special design or foil or refractory effect instead of making it look like a normal base card. More people would chase it if it had that 'cool' finish/effect.

Looks decent, I like that splash effect thing on the rookie cards. I don't like Contenders having memorabilia cards though, makes it like all the other releases so far.

Why is everyone picking on pinoymamba? If y'all take your blinders off, you might find that he actually likes the product. Didn't know only negative opinions were allowed on panini topics lol.

YES, cheesy looking so far. Expected? Yeah. They need to concentrate on one product and make it good! Hopefully its NT

Panini is doing their best. I absolutely love their products.
Pricewise is just right on.
They are appealing to the majority of collectors.

The sick patch overwhelms the bad card design.
