2012-13 Panini Prizm Basketball Goes for Gold with USA Basketball Inserts

This past summer, USA Basketball claimed another gold medal at the 2012 Olympic Summer Games in London. The latest incarnation of the Dream Team was headlined by the likes of Kobe Bryant, LeBron James and Kevin Durant. The roster also featured several younger superstars like Anthony Davis, James Harden and Kevin Love. 2012-13 Panini Prizm Basketball captures the squad with a flashy 12-card insert set.

The 2012-13 Panini Prizm USA Basketball design shows players in action wearing their national team threads. The backdrop of the card has a patriotic American flag.

Besides the standard chromium version of the card, collectors can also chase three levels of parallels: Prizms, retail-exclusive Green Prizms and Gold Prizms that are numbered to 10.

The base versions aren't terribly rare, but they're not easy to find either. This should ensure that most collectors can put together a set if they wish. They'll just likely have to buy going after singles rather than via larger lots that knock out most of the set in one swoop. They also won't be left with a ton of extras either.

Here's a look at the entire 2012-13 Panini Prizm Basketball USA Basketball set.
