It's official, Panini's looking to buyout UD, what other reason is there really? I've lost count on the # of products this year, definitely 20+? An $800/box pre-release quote? Are you kidding me?

I can't even imagine how pissed I'd be if I dropped serious money on the rookie cards that came out of NT only to have an $800/box product announced after the fact.

Panini deserves some credit here, this will be only their 6th really good product this year (Prizm, Select, Preferred, Gold Standard, NT)
I'm sorry mane, I just can't get into the stuff. As I've said though, I'd like the Silos if it wasn't for the borders and I think the NTs RAPs look pretty nice. I'd give credit if A LOT of it didn't all look the same, and if they would stop pumping out so much of it. And the name Panini and cards together, just kills it. When I think Panini I think sandwich, can't help it lol

Why the hell would I want 3 logo men of the same player on the same card? I mean thats just dumb. All the logomen look the same, at least mix the players up to make it look different and appealing.

On the other hand, those patches are going to be SWEET as hell!

This is Panini... it'll probably be Kobe, Durant, Paul, Rose, Pierce and Devin Harris or something...

Anybody else find it disgusting/insulting that Panini didn't put logoman cards into ANY other products than NT, and are now left with so many that they're putting THREE OF THE SAME PLAYER into the same cards?
C'mon man...

they should be in the high end i feel honestly. but they are overkilling it with the print runs.

the 3 of the same player logoman is asinine though for sure. someone suggested on their blog to do a starting 5 from each team. that would be sweet and much more logical

Lol, yeah, I am both deeply disgusted and insulted. This has ruined my whole day... no, year!

Panini have already commented on their blog that the versions with multiple logomen of the same player aren't prevalent. Relax.

Well clearly you don't care for the state of the hobby with your immature response. Obviously I'm talking IN TERMS OF THE HOBBY. Grow up.

WOW $800!? If that is true those cards better be ridiculous, and like someone else said, that could really F up the value of NT rcs.

I would agree that was dumb for three logos of One player. And I think they are a few other products that could have been lifted by them(absolute comes to mind)

No, what I don't care for is your ridiculous hyperbole and glass almost empty mentality.

Look, I don't necessarily agree with the logomen either, but I'm not going to let it ruin the whole product for me.

Sad part is, Panini is releasing so many products that we can't tell if this is serious or not anymore, lol. Golden briefcase? Housing gorgeous sticker autos? can't wait!

Cool, the logoman becomes an even bigger joke. At least they listened to the collectors who said logomen should be 1/1s. Whats the solution? Put all three on the same card.

I don't get it. Are they trying to dethrone NT as their flagship product?

Huh? Did I say it ruins the whole product? I say they once again take a good idea and manage to stuff it up, but also that they have held back so many logomans that they could have improved other products with. How is that saying anything like your post? Ruin the whole product? Learn to read...

Has there ever been an $800 basketball product out the gate without Jordan autos cause that might be the only way Panini sells that stuff. More Irving, Kobe, and Durant autos won't do the trick. Everything would have to be on card with a bunch of other things for people to even consider it. But man, if the UD buyout goes through, then having a Jordan/Bulls auto and the first Lebron/Heat autos would get people hyped up.

They are trying to squeeze out every nickel from this double rookie class and their license. After NT sells out, they up the stakes and up the stakes some more. As long as people keep buying it, they will keep churning it out.
