Quote:
As we speak, an international audience of fans, collectors and media await tonight’s tip off of Game 1 of the 2013 NBA Finals between the Miami Heat and San Antonio Spurs — and iCollectPanini.com is ready. Panini America officials have created a championship-worthy trading card promotion in the spirit of the tremendously successful Super Bowl XLVII initiative.

For a limited time only and while supplies last, customers who purchase $100 worth of NBA product at iCollectPanini.com will receive a one-card 2013 NBA Finals Promo Pack guaranteed to include either one randomly selected Private Signings autograph card, one autograph memorabilia Rookie Card, or a one-of-one diamond-studded card featuring either LeBron James, Tim Duncan, Dwyane Wade or 2013 NBA Rookie of the Year Damian Lillard.


The staggering collection of special NBA Finals-themed cards features a checklist that includes the greatest players in NBA Finals history and some of the NBA’s most promising young stars. We’ve provided a small gallery of the cards for your preview pleasure below, as well as the complete product checklist. Stay tuned to The Knight’s Lance in the coming days for a gallery of every card in the set.

Dotting the autograph checklist are all-time great NBA champions such as Bryant, Duncan, Bill Russell, James Worthy, Larry Bird, Magic Johnson and many more; top young stars and rookies such as Kyrie Irving, Kenneth Faried, Anthony Davis, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist and more.

Collectors who purchase $100 worth of select NBA product on iCollectPanini.com (2011-12 Totally Certified, 2012-13 Timeless Treasures, 2012-13 Limited, 2012-13 Past & Present and 2012-13 Contenders) will receive one 2013 NBA Finals Promo Pack. Multiple purchases are allowed – in other words, if you purchase five boxes of eligible product then you will receive five 2013 NBA Finals Promo Packs.

As always, we have provided you with a glimpse of the greatness below — stay tuned to The Knight’s Lance for continued 2013 NBA Finals coverage, including a can’t-miss #PaniniWildCard Twitter promotion that will win lucky fans and collectors boxes of Panini America NBA trading cards.

this looks cool, but i noticed the pricepoints.

certified will be around $100, but will sellout fast due to it being the lowest price at which you are eligible for a bonus pack.

wont the others require multiple boxes purchased?

cool either way i guess.

EDIT - nevermind. looks like you are paying for the pack too in a way...

im going to go ahead and not buy a $100 box of Timeless Treasures or Past & Present for a shot at a nice bonus. the checklist isnt horrible, but this is kind of whack.

so it looks like we have 74 total possibilities (and that is only if collation is equal, which im sure it's not)

how many make up for paying an extra $20-30+ for a box? i'd only be happy if i pulled one of these:

Base Set - Private Signings
1 Bill Russell Boston Celtics
2 Bill Walton Boston Celtics
3 Bob Cousy Boston Celtics
7 Larry Bird Boston Celtics
13 Dennis Rodman Chicago Bulls
17 Scottie Pippen Chicago Bulls
30 Hakeem Olajuwon Houston Rockets
36 Jerry West Los Angeles Lakers
37 Kareem Abdul-Jabbar Los Angeles Lakers
38 Kobe Bryant Los Angeles Lakers
39 Magic Johnson Los Angeles Lakers
45 Dwyane Wade Miami Heat
46 Kareem Abdul-Jabbar Milwaukee Bucks
49 Kevin Durant Oklahoma City Thunder
51 Allen Iverson Philadelphia 76ers
52 Julius Erving Philadelphia 76ers
55 Bill Walton Portland Trail Blazers
56 David Robinson San Antonio Spurs
59 John Stockton Utah Jazz

Card Set - Rookie
1 Kyrie Irving Cleveland Cavaliers
2 Anthony Davis New Orleans Hornets
3 Michael Kidd-Gilchrist Charlotte Bobcats
6 Harrison Barnes Golden State Warriors
8 Kenneth Faried Denver Nuggets

Card Set - Diamond Cards
3 LeBron James Miami Heat
5 Tim Duncan San Antonio Spurs
6 Dwyane Wade Miami Heat
7 Damian Lillard Portland Trail Blazers

so that is 27 that i would be "happy" about getting - the others, while there are some cool players, can just be had too cheaply. even some of the players i listed will be readily available for less than the cost difference between buying boxes there and somewhere - anywhere - else. also, we know the rookies and diamonds are almost certain to not be as common as the private signings.

i just dont see the value in this promotion. i guess "buy a box of something you probably wouldnt otherwise want, and that will allow you to purchase a $30 one card pack and it will probably be john salley" wasnt a very catchy promo name.

I think this is a cool idea by Panini, they've been getting better and smarter about their promo department. Now they just need to get a whole let better in their design department.

There are going to be a bunch of them that are low numbered like football. Out of 1, 3, 5, 10, etc. I can see some people trying to complete the set. Overseas buyers are going to want them too. Good luck to all.

You do notice that when you go to the website the only boxes that are "In Stock" that are part of the promotion are 2012-13 Timeless Treasures ($100), 2012-13 Past and Present ($100) and 2012-13 Contenders ($120)...

2012-13 Limited and 11-12 Certified (not even shown on the site) are both out of stock.

So either way you look at it you are paying $20-$30 mark up on the boxes to get a shot at one of these packs... not bad if you get the right card, but definitely not a sure thing...

But I bet I try it anyways, lol.

Out of the three products available contenders is the obvious choice. It just sucks that at the $120 price point, you would have to buy 5 boxes to make it an even $100 number.

I tried to get in on this. The price on the TC was actually kinda low. I went to add it to my cart maybe 3 minutes after they sent out the e-mail and it was already sold out. No way I'm buying any of that other stuff. Not only are they $25-$35 more than anywhere else, they're crappy products that were already hard to get a good ROI when they were $70.

I was thinking of doing a box of limited but I see its like $25 more than BO. I don't think it would be worth it though. I'm torn.

The football promo had the same concerns. There were some less than desireable players but there were also some really nice ones with low print runs. Unopened promo boxes sold well. Even at $100 for some of the boxes people were still coming out ahead. You can't get hurt too bad. Even if you open your promo box and get a $30-$50 hit your only into the box you bought for $50-$70 and who knows what you hit in those. It's the same risk as buying a "discounted" box of these products from BO and you aren't getting the promo pack. I was able to get 3 boxes of Limited but not sure what I'll do with the promo packs.

I'd rather just buy some of the promo packs for $30 instead. Tough to break even on those boxes.

the only one id really consider would be limited.

i think the Lights Out gu set is one of the best jersey sets Panini has ever done, and i like the rookie auto design. Limited was not the worst.

but honestly i cannot buy as much wax as some, and when i do i cant do it just for the hell of taking part in a promotion if that means paying like 30% more.

id prefer to save the money and put it towards another box of Select at blowout prices.

I think when these went live the promo packs were selling for $100-$150 by themselves. Not sure what they dropped to after the initial wave of buyers.

These will be on eBay in a few days, I would rather pay $25-30 for a pack instead of paying $100 for crap like Timeless Treasures. If Panini actually sold these at current market prices I would buy from them, but at the prices they have, hell no!

I bought some.


No way these promo packs will be at $30 for a guaranteed autograph with possibility of a huge star, legend ... or an auto patch ... or the 1/1 diamond cards!

This is a win-win promo. The packs will sell unopened for at least $70. Trust me those packs will get good money.

I said screw it and got one limited. I liked last years set, so for $100 plus the bonus pack...might as well. No tax and free shipping too!!!

I'd be paying close to that at my LCS plus tax so I'm taking a gamble
