Default panini could be in trouble with the nba

Apparently panini is in trouble with the nba on how the cards are made and the licensing fees.. I was talking to a lead card designer with upper deck and he stated that they don't expect panini to be exclusives much longer with the nba.. there are talks with other companies in the works..

Kind of hilarious that this is coming from someone that works at Upper Deck. They'll probably say how Panini stole Kobe from them when he was still under contract or something

Coming from upper deck I'll take it with a grain of salt.

He was at the lcs. He does not only work for upper deck. That is just what he doing now. He is contract. He made designs for topps as well. Apprently. There has been a lot going on that I have not heard about. Even the owners of the lcs knew what he was talking about because his distributors have said something similar as well. I don't know. I think we may see changes for next season. He said he is working on some new basketball product designs for ud and he hopes things change soon. This guy had some amazing concepts for inserts and is partially responsible for those bone and artifact inserts for the hockey product that have done well.

I have a feeling it will be topps back in the NBA before upper deck due to financial reasons. But I would not mind that either. The return of chrome..

Topps is great as well. Never tried Chrome but I definitely liked Luxury and Letterman.
