Default Gaining Momentum: Panini America Shares New Addition to 2012-13 NBA Roster

Gaining Momentum: Panini America Shares New Addition to 2012-13 NBA Roster
Feb 4th 2013, 16:08


The Panini America NBA Product Development team has taken a page from the playbook of its NFL brethren and tweaked it — considerably. So while football collectors who crossover to basketball will notice many aesthetic similarities between 2012 Momentum Football and the upcoming 2012-13 Momentum Basketball,they’ll notice some huge differences when the hoops version releases in late April, too.
Most notably, they’ll notice the presence of five autograph cards in every 15-card pack — an ink-heavy configuration that should add a decided pop to a product that will carry a $200 pack SRP.

2012-13 Momentum Basketball features a 300-card base set (including 85 Rookie Cards) and three unique autograph inserts (Momentous Autographs, Momentous Rookies Autographs and Monumental Marks). The most substantial of those is the massive Monumental Marks that’s slated to include 300 cards.
Other preliminary highlights of the product include the uniquely die-cut Force insert and the etched-foil brilliance of the Drive parallel. We’ll have tons more to share on 2012-13 Momentum Basketball as the April 8 ship date approaches, so stay tuned to The Knight’s Lance for updates. But for now, enjoy this preliminary sneak peek:

Kinda sucks they went from 10 packs to 1. I mean for the people who cant flip the $200 a box bill, being able to buy a pack of Momentum would have been nice just to try it out...

I'd be happy if they cut down on the amount of product and try taking care of redemptions.

Will there be like 50 products next year? Lol

I think that sounds like a good number for the over/under bet

3 of the 5 autos are most likely going to be D leaguers.

not a fan. There is nothing distinct about the cards. Panini really needs to start working on creating product identity....

I seriously don't know how these LCSs stay in business with this little of profit. If this product is 20 packs instead of 1 pack, the LCS can sell $5 per pack to get full profit % while selling discounted price for a box. Now, with a pack sitting at $200, it is really hard to get creative on marketing/sale.

WOW, just WOW

Another product that looks exactly the same as the rest.

What is panini trying to do? It makes no sense whatsoever.

A 300-card set? Who are they going to put in it? And $200 for 5 autos? This just seems like a total bomb of a product, not anything like what people will want.

One thing IS for sure... they will sell out! People around the world will gobble it right up, especially new people to the hobby, and/or the sport, they'll buy ANYTHING, so why not lol.

The beauty of the hobby, there is something for everybody!!! We don't have to buy this if we don't like it... that simple. We will buy though, cards that catch our eye from Panini, so who cares really. They will sell this product, and any other product they put our.

Let's not put the product down, cause after all, some, or a lot of our fellow BO members will collect this stuff... If not anybody here, people round the world!!!

Collect what YOU love!

Btw, I think the Kobe auto card is pretty sweet, nice and clean design...

Everytime I think Panini can't get any worse, they outdo themselves and put out a product like this.

One a bright note, instead of taking 10 minutes to open a box, it will now take collectors merely a minute to rip a 15-card pack.

Shouldn't they just call this Panini Black? It's like the Panini Black FB version...

Because this is based off of Panini Momentum from Football. They all look the same to me, so much for brand identity.

very nice post, no matter if for real or ironic, this is how it works.
there are millions of collectors all over the world who will love these cards, because they collect for fun and not for making money with them!
who cares about 100 hater on some forums who hate every single release because they don't see making $$ with them.


nfl edition of momentum is really nice, they look some kind like ultimate collection from the past ud products.
