Default Eureka: 2012 Draft Class Redemptions from 2011-12 Gold Standard Basketball Arrive!

Eureka: 2012 Draft Class Redemptions from 2011-12 Gold Standard Basketball Arrive!December 28, 2012 at 12:54 PM
To truly appreciate the heavy-metal majesty that is the 2012 Draft Class Redemptions from 2011-12 Gold Standard Basketball, it helps to hold them in your hands. And in the next few days, patient collectors who’ve been waiting for the chance to do just that will finally be rewarded.
Just this week, the finished cards — weighty, wonderfully designed and hopefully worth the wait — arrived at Panini America HQ and will be on their way to collectors early next week. Here’s hoping the following 12-image preview gallery provides a worthy appetite-whetter until the cards begin arriving.

And stay tuned to The Knight’s Lance for additional updates on the other Draft Class Redemption programs from 2011-12 Past & Present Basketball, 2011-12 Limited Basketball and 2011-12 Gold Standard Basketball.
Now, for the preview . . .
(Viewers beware: No matter how proud I am of my new iPhone 5 camera, its images simply can’t do these cards justice. They look even better in person.)

If only they numbered those, it would be worth a lot more.

Looks good/unique, although the pictures of the cards are so dark it's hard to get a feel for them

I personally like these and cant wait for my Barnes to arrive and will be picking up the redemptions for picks 13,14 and 17. I dont know what yall expect all the time but visually these are much better than the rookie autos in absolute and contenders. Oh yea and its made of metal.

I'll be more impressed once it's in my hands. Oh well, another few months I suppose.

Let me get this straight coz im a bit confuse about this redemption of rookies. So wether you get it from GS Or Limited the card is going to look like this. Or its going to be different from each other?

Why is it that you constantly praise everything Panini puts out? It's as if you are programmed to only say the nicest things about everything they make. Do you ever have constructive criticism or is it always praise because you are just naive and don't know any better?

I think those cards do look good but numbering on the front and having a 1/1 version would make them better.
