Panini America premiered its third NBA product for 2012-13 on Wednesday, and it’s one that will include a little hardwood when it arrives in October.

It’s Threads, and it will arrive on Oct. 3 packing 100 Rookie Cards printed on wood stock — each with on-card signatures, too.

Each 24-pack box will include an assortment of cards from the 150-card base set and an array of inserts. But most importantly it will include three autographs and one memorabilia card. (Need a checklist or an OPG for a past Panini Threads release? Click here.)

Among the signed cards in this one will be Team Threads, Rookie Team Threads and Private Signings. Memorabilia cards will include Authentic Threads — with standard and prime versions — as well as Triple Threads (no, not those) and a prime version of those as well.

Other inserts will include Century Greats and High Flyers.

    Errr, correction. 150 card base set. :)

    They look pretty decent and would LOVE to have the rookies on wood stock. I wish there was a product that was solely wood stock.

    Panini does not announce SRPs. Should be in the ballpark same amount as past years.
