2012-13 Panini Preferred Basketball Hot List and Top Sales

Hot List

With a lineup that consists strictly of autographs and book cards, 2012-13 Panini Preferred Basketball has quickly caught on in a big way. Taking several popular designs from the past, particularly from the company's Pacific Trading Cards portfolio, collectors are clamoring for the high-end product.

Especially popular are the Silhouettes. The distinct autographed memorabilia cards have a die-cut player image cast on top of a jumbo jersey or patch piece. The elegant cards are capped off with an on-card signature. There are more than 80 different Rookie Silhouettes cards, including Kyrie Irving. Early on, base versions of the superstar's rookie card was hovering around $800-1,000. Redemption cards for Prime versions numbered to 25 reached as high as $5,200 during the opening week of sales.

2012-13 Panini Preferred Basketball Silhouettes aren't limited to rookies. One hundred veterans and retired stars are also featured. Not only do the cards look good, but the checklist is also bolstering the intrigue. Kobe Bryant, Scottie Pippen, Larry Bird and Blake Griffin are just some of the superstars with Silhouettes.

Also drumming up a lot of interest are the Panini's Choice Autographs. The die-cut cards are a throwback to Pacific's Kramer's Choice inserts that were, for the time, tough to find. Shaped somewhat like a pyramid, Panini has added signatures and colored parallels to the mix with strong results.
