Panini’s flagship basketball product looks to be knighted on in its third release.
2013-14 Panini Basketball will hit the shelves in early April with hobby and retail exclusives available throughout the product.
Panini will include two autographs in every hobby box with 24 packs and 10 cards in each. When it comes to retail, there will be one hit (auto or memorabilia card) in regular boxes, which will have 24 eight-card packs.
Inserts in Panini Basketball will include Knights of the Round die-cuts with 1-of-1 Black Knights, and Red Knight retail-only parallels; and Favorites.
This is where collectors will be able to find Rated Rookie Signatures, which will be numbered to 100 or less.
Also, collectors can find Superstar Signatures and Rising Tide Autographs with lineups that include all facets of basketball from rookies to Hall of Famers.
Other retail-exclusive content includes Rookie Jerseys and Panini Game Jerseys.
