2013-14 Panini Basketball CardsBrand: Panini Basketball
2013-14 Panini Basketball offers something more for set builders and budget-conscious collectors at a time when nearly every release focuses on high-end hits. Featuring several exclusives for both the hobby and retail markets, the set has a broad mix of base cards, autographs, memorabilia cards and basic inserts.
Hobby boxes promise a pair of signed cards. These come under several different banners. Superstar Signatures includes only top players. The checklist is limited to ten cards and all are numbered to 199 or less. Rated Rookie Signatures, numbered to 100 or less, have a first-year player signing on fabric that's accompanied by a manufactured patch. Rising Tide Autographs also feature young players. Throughout the autographed portion of the release, collectors can expect a wide variety of signers, including Hall of Famers and coaches.
Among the basic inserts are die-cut Knights of the Round cards, which showcase the card maker's logo. Favorites is a short-printed set spotlighting popular NBA stars.
2013-14 Panini Basketball has several retail exclusives. These include Panini Game Jerseys, Rookie Jerseys and Red Knight parallels. Retail boxes have fewer cards and promise just one autograph or memorabilia card.
Panini has not yet released details on the base set composition.
