Not long ago, the idea of a video trading card arrived with a lot of noise.

Since then, particularly since their arrival, there’s only been one noise — cha-ching! – as the Panini HRX cards have commanded some serious cash at times on the secondary market.

While there might not be any basketball cards for some time — Panini America is in a holding pattern because of the NBA lockout — it did release on Wednesday this peek into what’s in the card for those who haven’t been lucky enough to land a John Wall HRX or anyone else.

Above is the actual video found in the No. 1 pick’s card. Check it out …

I’m willing to bet anyone any amount of money that within five years Panini will no longer be making video trading cards.

Hi end not a feesable long term investment but a great money maker a good base to autograph like those manufactured flagg cards or the team logo cards.

Better than I thought for the content. It had him showing off some of his media training, a few fun practice moments, and I was shocked to actually see some game footage because I’m sure that is not cheap to license from the league unless the league gave Panini a good discount to enhance their card part of licensing.
