Default The Immaculate Collection: Panini America Previews 2012-13 Immaculate Basketball

The Immaculate Collection: Panini America Previews 2012-13 Immaculate Basketball
Aug 14th 2013, 16:42, by Tracy Hackler


From the day Panini America’s 2011-12 Prime Hockey was announced more than 17 months ago, collectors of other sports have been clamoring for a similar product to call their own. The voices only grew louder when that inaugural edition of Prime released last August. And now that 2012-13 Prime Hockey is on the verge of release, the demand is deafening.
It’s obvious by now: Baseball, basketball and football hobbyists crave a Prime-like product that places a premium on some of the biggest, nastiest, game-worn memorabilia cards of all time. In late October, another sport’s collectors will get their wish — and it will be . . . immaculate.

2012-13 Immaculate Collection Basketball is slated to arrive October 16 and will deliver — quite frankly — some of the most unique NBA memorabilia cards ever created by incorporating the same hand-cut craftsmanship and attention to patch detail that hockey collectors have come to love about Prime. (In the special preview gallery below, we show you just some of game-worn greatness that awaits.)
And while Immaculate’s massively proportioned memorabilia cards will demand most of this product’s headlines, there’s much more to like. Every six-card box of 2012-13 Immaculate Collection Basketball will deliver one base card numbered to 99, one Autograph Patch Rookie Card numbered to 99 or less, one autograph or autograph patch card, one memorabilia card and one additional autograph or memorabilia card.
Among the product’s many highlights:
  • Six Star Logos, the industry’s first six NBA Logoman Booklet 1/1s.
  • Immaculate Caps memorabilia card featuring pieces of player-worn hats.
  • Immaculate Numbers acetate variations sequentially numbered to the featured player’s jersey number.
  • Immaculate Insignias memorabilia cards featuring team-specific found on the back and chest areas of game-worn jerseys.
  • Immaculate Logos memorabilia cards featuring oversized pieces of Logos, Numbers and Commemorative Patches.
  • Immaculate Standard cards featuring oversized memorabilia swatches of the top NBA superstars on the pristine Immaculate acetate substrate.
  • All-Star Lineage and Title Winners Autographs: Autograph cards featuring players who have won an NBA Championship or appeared in an All-Star Game. All of these will be numbered to the number of a times the featured player has won a title or appeared in an All-Star Game.
We’ll have much more on 2012-13 Immaculate Collection Basketball here on The Knight’s Lance in the coming weeks. But for now, we’re done talking. We’ll let the following preview images speak for themselves.
Enjoy.

Those Super Jumbo Patches looks amazing, I don't care if everyone says theyre pumping out too many products, but this has to jump to top 5 of the 12/13 releases this year.

That 6 way Logoman is ridiculous, but my concern is why 3 logomans for a single player? I know its a mock up, but I wonder if they will change it to 6 different players

So the way this is packaged, and pack contents, is this the real rival to Exquisite?

Looks awesome. Only complaint is three of the same player on the 6-way logoman. No one needs three slightly different pictures of one player on one card. Mix it up.

I really have to hand it to Panini (Although its another 12-13 release) for listening to collectors and putting out a superior product (a little worried that its going to be way over priced).

Will be interested to see what some UD Fan boys say about this other than "UD would put in twice the hits with better designs for 10% the price and 100x the value!"

Yeah, I don't really like that. I would like it if it were all different players or even one player with 3 patches, but I don't like 3 a piece of two different players.

this...looks like an excellent product that's worthy of a premium price per box/case.

It's set up just like Prime Hockey, which is $210/box. I would think it's going to be $200-250/box.

Agreed. Waste of their logos.

A product to be released close to the start of 2013-14 season and still called a 2012-13 product... :O

Aside from that, the product looks interesting...would love to see how a cap card looks like.

The RPA looks kinda like it could be from Ultimate instead of a Panini product. The patches look awesome but of course they are only gonna show the best of the best on a sell sheet/preview.

i agree, but this product's 'best' looks light years better than a lot of the other 'best' posts we've seen for any number of other products.

it will all come down to pricing.

If some of the trim is actually foil of some sort, this stuff will be by far and away the best Panini basketball product. For once, I'm actually excited for one of their products. NT is nice for sure, but this is a game changer for basketball.

Exactly. Prime hockey is nice, but their big hockey product is Dominion, which is what equates to NT. this should be a great buy if in the $200 range, although the hockey patches are much better. The team logos on hockey jerseys are on the whole better than just about any other sport. I'm interested to see what a case hit will be out of this, but I can see a lot of group breaks going for this.
