First look: 2013-14 Titanium Basketball cards

By Susan Lulgjuraj | Beckett Basketball Editor

Panini America is bringing the Titanium name to basketball.

After using the name in hockey, Panini will release 2013-14 Titanium Basketball in late February.

Each hobby box will contain five packs with four cards in each pack. There will be a hit per pack with two autographs and three memorabilia cards in every box.

Autographs include Reserve Signatures, Metallic Marks, Enshrinement Ink (autographs of players in the Hall of Fame), and Electric Endorsements.

Memorabilia sets will include Game Gear Duals, Titanic Threads Jumbo and Double-Double Jerseys.

The Titanium Rookie Cards will be numbered to the featured player’s jersey, draft year and draft positions.

When it comes to retail, Panini is adding something extra. Retail boxes will feature inserts and exclusive parallels numbered to 330. In addition, each one-pack retail box will have two Rookie Memorabilia cards.

“The Titanium Rookie Cards will be numbered to the featured player’s jersey, draft year and draft positions.”
most players wear #’s less than 50 and alot lower
draft year … i love my rookies numbered to 2013
and draft positions are almost as low as jersey numbers

Just have to keep saying this Panini needs to get Lebron auto’s and Mj in their cards.
Although they are getting better and the league is getting better as more talent arrives each year.
It still lacks for me as a collector the essence of what these 2 additions could make.
Panini get it done get Mj and Lebron.
thanks

Looks Great, Only Question is will Panini hype this Product and then at the Last minute announce you can only get the product from certain places or countries as they did with Panini Hockey. It was Bad enough they shut out American LCS but, then Distributing early to only authorized Round Table Stores makes it hard to collect Panini. BTW Does anyone know if their is a List of Panini Round Table Stores?

Upper Deck has Jordan and Lebron with exclusives contracts so it’s not as if Panini has a chance at them and they’d be smart to get them if given the chance one day.
