Default Thoughts on preferred in general and what would you rather, in preferred? (Booklets)

I was intending to post another state of the hobby thread, but I'm too preoccupied right now to gather and organize my thoughts. Surprisingly, if you've seen my thoughts on panini previously, my views are positive.

so let's stick to preferred for now So, personally I thought preferred this year was a really good release though there are some things that were done that left me scratching my head, (the completely out of place players on certain booklets) but with a few tweaks I think it becomes a favorite, from the point of view of a wax buster.

I've noticed that individual booklets are selling for a good deal more than multiplayer booklets.

Here is a duncan solo booklet that sold for 25.00

2012 13 Panini Preferred Tim Duncan Booklet 6 x Jersey D 199 | eBay

And here we have a combo booklet with duncan, malone, olajuwon, mourning, shaq, brand and kanter, who outside of kanter and brand are really solid names, and some more collected than duncan individually and it sells for about 15 bucks

2012 13 Preferred Jersey Booklet Book Rebound 116 199 Shaq Hakeem Duncan | eBay

I find it pretty interesting, and I imagine these booklets would be more appealing and provide more value as a whole, if outside of a select few combinations that really make sense and are lacking the head scratcher of a player, in the above case kanter and brand, they were changed to individual booklets for everyone.

Lastly as panini improves, there is still one thing that I've noticed has been completely missing from their releases since they have taken over. Can someone name me a single set in which there were dual++ signatures on card? I honestly can't think of one though I may have overlooked a set. Basically I think if you make one really classic looking(think private signings) SPed single and multi signature set and I think you really put preferred over the top.

Also, this I'm sure is a pipe dream, but could you guys imagine a Silhouette 1/1 subset where the patch is the full team logo?

So I'd love to hear you're own thoughts on the set, possible improvements etc etc

I like single player booklet where each window has a different patch on it.

Imagine a Shaq booklet that spells out DIESEL and each window has beautiful looking patches on it from different jersey.

At that point though it's basically triple threads. They'd probably have to tweak something
