First look: 2012-13 Prestige basketball


By Chris Olds | Beckett Basketball Editor

Panini America offered the first glimpses at 2012-13 Prestige on Tuesday, the second release of the post-lockout era and the second release that will include a double-dose of NBA rookies.

The product will include 100 Rookie Cards — members of last year’s NBA Draft class as well as this year’s — when it arrives in August.

Rookie Cards will be found in every pack with three autographs and one memorabilia card in every 24-pack hobby box.

New inclusions will be Distinctive Ink and Old School Autographs — both autographed sets with on-card sigs — as well as the standard Inside the Numbers, Prestigious Pros and True Colors inserts.

    Will Kyrie Irving’s official first rookie card be the VIP handout from last year still?

    It’s not an RC because it wasn’t distributed in a packed out product and isn’t part of a comprehensive set.

    That Kyrie Irving card would have been awesome to pull out of 2011-12 Prestige. Oh, wait …

    Chris Olds – I tweeted you and Beckett Media today; trying to get some help loading to the show calendar part of the website. Who can I contact for help on this?

    Yes – that’s the one. When I try to add a new event I’m getting an error. Tried calling Beckett yesterday and talked to 3 people who couldn’t help me, so I thought I would message you to see who I truly needed to talk to. Gotta get the two shows I promote on there to get some customers for my new store!!! Thanks Chris
