By Chris Olds | Beckett Basketball Editor

The auctions have ended, the numbers have been crunched. The ranges have been tabulated and the OPG has been posted.

The 2012-13 Totally Certified basketball card set from Panini America has arrived on with the favorites, autographs and memories in tow. Let’s take a look inside the numbers crunched by Beckett Basketball Senior Market Analyst Rob Springs — and see even more — after the jump.

Total value:  $34,010
Average price:  $15.14

Highest card:
— Totally Certified HRX Video Cards #1 Kobe Bryant $200-$400

Other notable cards:
— Totally Certified Rookie Roll Call Autographs Blue #3 Anthony Davis $175-$350
— Totally Certified Gold #70 Damian Lillard $175-$350

Springs says: Totally Certified has lots and lots of autograph and memorabilia goodies (one per pack), so if you have been missing the rapid-fire hits, then this product is for you.  Like the 2010-11 vehicle, this product is mainly driven by the tougher Black, Gold and Green parallels, which are largely unpriced due to scarcity, but have seen very solid sales on the secondary market.  The on-card Rookie Roll Call autographs are the driver on this product and there are only a handful of players that had redemptions.  HRX Video Cards return (with autograph parallels) and are strong sales, a little lower on average than the 2010-11 bunch, but they are still trading for big money.

Olds’ Opinion: If you’re a hit-minded buyer and enjoy foil-etching and varied color parallels, this one is here for you. An added potential bonus in this one would be the latest crop of video cards — the latest in some new cardboard technology — but those old-fashioned autographs, Rookie Cards and rare parallels get the job done here.
