Default Court Gestures: Panini America’s Select and Preferred Products Begin to Take Shape

Court Gestures: Panini America’s Select and Preferred Products Begin to Take Shape
Feb 6th 2013, 19:29


The Panini America hoops hobby headlines that began this morning with the revelation that 2012-13 Elite Basketball would include the company’s first Dwyane Wade autographs continue this afternoon with a rather seismic sneak peek at two upcoming juggernauts: 2012-13 Select Basketball and 2012-13 Preferred Basketball.
Both products are in various stages of the development cycle as we speak. The profoundly Prizmatic on-card autographs for Select Basketball are being returned to Panini America HQ at a rapid clip these days; Preferred’s Silhouettes, Panini’s Choice Awards and Preferred Signatures cards landed late yesterday afternoon, literally hot off the presses from the printing facility.

These and any other finished Select cards that arrive in the coming days will join their cardboard counterparts back at the production facility to await collation and packout. These Preferred beauties are being counted, cataloged and QC’d at this very minute before being shipped to their repsective NBA stars for signing.
Regardless of where they are in the process, they’re absolutely worth admiring. We’ll continue to provide updates on these products in the coming days and weeks right here on The Knight’s Lance, so stay tuned. Until then, though, feast on this eye candy . . .

One word... WOW

The Shaq with the Magic uni is just disgusting.
Also the Select autos look beautiful with the finish.

Hopefully a turnaround from the mediocre stuff Panini's been putting out (Contenders, Limited, etc.)

The Shaq Magic Silhouette is nice.

Overall, these are impressive cards by Panini's standards, even if I do feel like I've seen them all before.

Always nice to see good patch cards of players with none/few, I'm sure these will be big sellers again

At least these Silhouettes are better than football design.

The gold select should be full boarder, not just 2 sides.

I dont collect basketball. I dont watch basketball.

That being said, these are some amazing looking cards.

It makes me a little light headed to think, much less say, this:

WELL DONE PANINI!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Preferred looks incredible. Going to hold off for now, but I might get a case. Everything about it just looks better. Only way they could botch it is if two out of three autos per box are rookies.

Same as last year, smaller patch window

At least they kept the same nice design.

Those triangle cards are so ugly and there are so many products with them.

I would love to see Shaq and Wade autos on card

I agree, I think look pretty neat too. Just don't like how they look exactly the same as last years' though

Judging from the look of the autogrpahs, it seems that Uncle Drew signed the parallels first before signing the regular cards. Haha~

How do those cards look similar? The patch windows are all different and its pretty clear which product belonged to which year.


Not that its a bad thing, Sillouttes are the best cards and design panini ever made
Compare Preferred from last year to this year, they look almost the same

It's hard to believe that anyone would get this years and last years silhouette designs confused.
