The sophomore season for Preferred will include something that many collectors prefer and that wasn’t around in its rookie year.
Panini America unveiled the first looks at 2012-13 Panini Preferred on Friday and the biggest difference this season will be RCs as last year’s release didn’t include any first-time players.
Set to arrive in March, Preferred will include four cards per box with three autographs and one multi-player booklet card with as many as eight players. All autographs in the high-end product are limited to 99 or fewer copies and more than 250 players will be found as signers in the brand.
Among the cards to be found will be Panini’s Choice diecut cards, Crown Royale cards and the popular Silhouettes Signatures cards. The rookies will be found on all three types of cards with their autographs.
