comparing only RPA, if you go with Aesthetics, Immaculate. if you go with collecting, branding and investing it has to be NT.

I think and hope its NT. I love Immaculate and hope its a staple high end like Exq v. Ultimate but NT is a staple product with a little history.

NT is like the All Star game. People get all worked up and excited for a little while. Things look amazing and shortly after the excitement for it dulls.

Flawless and Immaculate were like the post season. Things mean more, real memories are created and legends are born.

For 12-13, I would have to say Immaculate as well. NT blew it that year with /199, sticker autos and the logoman design (and multiple logoman?)...no room for that in a high end product. Immaculate may take the torch from here on out and last year's inaugural edition may go down as Panini's first ground breaking release.

But i think most are on card for NT and the RC has only 1 logoman for national treasures whie immaculate has 2 versions of logoman for rc.

I think NT has the best looking patches. I like the clean look. The Flawless RCs are cool, but due to the scarcity, it will be hard for a lot of people to collect. Additionally, I think there aren't enough rookies in the set given the double class, and I personally prefer an auto on the rookie card.

That said, I personally think that the 12-13 double rookie class will go down as one of the most overrated in history when we look back on it in a 5 years. Outside of Anthony Davis and MAYBE Kyrie, I don't think there is more than mostly role players. There are a lot of nice players but not a lot that will have true star power over the long term.

personally i dont considering the immaculate jumbos RPA's to be true rcs. The vertical /99's are the true RCs from the set imo.

the jumbo patch autos = limited logos.

NT has stickers for Lillard

Immaculate has stickers for Lillard, and then 2 meaningless rookies (English and Murphy).

Not sure that makes a difference.

I like Immaculate the best. However, I do think the Flawless RPA /20, /10, and /5 are very underrated.

This card is what I am referring to:


But I'm a sucker for that rainbow foil effect.

but the patch window is rather small. thats why i was compraing the NT RPA and the Immaculate JUMBO patch auto, cause i think collectors like the big patch windows more.
