[B]Panini America’s 2011 Preferred Basketball Peekapalooza Continues with New Images[/B]

By Tracy Hackler

[IMG]http://paniniamerica.files.wordpress.com/2012/01/preferredpeektwo8.jpg?w=600[/IMG]

Yesterday [URL="http://paniniamerica.wordpress.com/2012/01/11/panini-america-provides-pre-autographed-peek-at-2011-preferred-basketball-gallery/"]we shared with you[/URL] images of the first live cards from [B]Panini America’s[/B] upcoming [B]2011 Preferred Basketball[/B] set. The scenes yesterday captured just a small portion of the [B]Panini’s Choice[/B] and [B]Crown Royale[/B] base and parallel cards that will soon be crossing the country with acquisitions guru [B]Ivory Tabb[/B] in pursuit of on-card signatures from the NBA’s greatest current stars and all-time greats.
This morning, a whole new shipment of these multicolored marvels arrived featuring new players and new versions. What ensued was an all-hands-on-deck assault to QC, count and prepare each player’s individual shipment. And we were there to capture all of the action.

Enjoy this new peek and be prepared: We’ve been told that Preferred’s spectacular [B]Silhouettes[/B] prime-patch memorabilia cards are on their way to Panini America HQ from the production facility this afternoon. As soon as they arrive, we’ll show you the must-see first glimpses right here at [B]The Knight’s Lance[/B] before those, too, embark on their signature journey.

[B]Raising the Bar: Panini America Previews 2011 Preferred Basketball’s Silhouettes[/B]


By Tracy Hackler

[IMG]http://paniniamerica.files.wordpress.com/2012/01/preferredsilhouetteskareem.jpg?w=600[/IMG]
[B]
Panini America[/B] spent most of this week previewing the throwback brilliance of [URL="http://paniniamerica.wordpress.com/2012/01/12/panini-americas-2011-preferred-basketball-peekapalooza-continues-with-new-images/"][B]2011 Preferred Basketball’s[/B] [B]Panini’s Choice[/B][/URL] and [URL="http://paniniamerica.wordpress.com/2012/01/11/panini-america-provides-pre-autographed-peek-at-2011-preferred-basketball-gallery/"][B]Crown Royale[/B] die-cut inclusions[/URL]. But today, the company plans to raise the bar — and collector expectations — even more with the first extended look at the set’s stunning [B]Silhouettes[/B].
The absolutely beautiful die-cut, prime-piece memorabilia cards that collectors fell in love with in [B]Crown Royale Football[/B] and [B]Crown Royale Hockey[/B] make their long-awaited basketball debut in 2011 Preferred. And they might just be the greatest-looking basketball cards ever made. Period.

Epic? No question. Sick? Absolutely. And that’s [I]before[/I] the autographs that will be added to every last one. Indeed, every non-booklet card in 2011 Preferred Basketball will be autographed on-card. But with all due respect to the other portions of the set, it’s likely that none will look as pristine perfect as Silhouettes.
The cards arrived at Panini America HQ on Friday morning to be counted, quality controlled and ogled. Then, they were packed with kid-glove care so that they could be expedited to the appropriate players for signing. Luckily for all of us, Panini America marketing comrade [B]Chris Reed[/B] was there to document the process.
Here’s what he saw . . .

[B]Blake Griffin Gets the Preferred Treatment in Weekend Panini America Signing[/B]

By Tracy Hackler

[IMG]http://paniniamerica.files.wordpress.com/2012/01/blakepreferred8.jpg?w=600[/IMG]




While [B]Panini America[/B] acquisitions specialist [B]Ivory Tabb[/B] kicked off her cross-country [B]2011 Preferred Basketball[/B] signing spree right here in Dallas, [B]Panini Authentic’s Brian Bayne[/B] headed west to Los Angeles for some superstar signing sessions on his own.
First on his guest list: The incomparable [B]Blake Griffin[/B], a Panini America-exclusive athlete, and teammate [B]Eric Bledsoe[/B]. We’ve heard rumors that Bayne might just sit down with Kobe Bryant on this West Coast swing, too. Stay tuned for details there. But until then, enjoy these exclusive images featuring some of the first hard-signed 2011 Preferred Basketball cards on the planet.

[B]Pieces de Resistance: Turning Kobe Bryant’s Game-Worn Jersey into Classic Collectibles[/B]

By Tracy Hackler

Earlier this week we detailed [URL="http://paniniamerica.wordpress.com/2012/01/16/blake-griffin-gets-the-preferred-treatment-in-weekend-panini-america-signing/"]the West Coast road trip[/URL] of [B]Panini America’s Brian Bayne[/B] as he attempted to secure on-card autographs from the likes of [B]Blake Griffin[/B] and [B]Eric Bledsoe[/B] for the upcoming [B]2011 Preferred Basketball[/B] release. As is his custom, Bayne went above and beyond the call of duty.
In this case, that meant extending his stay by a few days so that he could spend some quality signing time with [B]Los Angeles Lakers[/B] superstar [B]Kobe Bryant[/B]. Kobe signed many devastatingly gorgeous cards during the visit, including his [B]Silhouettes[/B] inserts that were, quite literally, hot off the presses.

In fact, the production work on Kobe’s Silhouettes cards was completed long after Bayne had left town. So those cards were rushed directly to Bayne at his hotel so he could have them in time for the signing.
In the gallery that follows, you’ll not only peek the beautiful finished product, you’ll also see the assortment of prime patches embedded into the cards. Enjoy. And stay tuned to [B]The Knight’s Lance[/B] for additional details on the blockbuster 2011 Preferred Basketball release.

I was initially pumped about this product but has anyone seen the checklist? The rookie cards are from last year's crop, not the most recent and Chris Paul's first Panini autographs will be as a Hornet not as a Clipper. I know both would be hard turnarounds, but in this day in age card companies should hold off releasing a product until they can be somewhat current.

Sorry it was a rhetorical question. I've seen the checklist, just disappointed they won't have this year's rookie class.
