Panini Locks Up Nerlens Noel, 15 Others to Deals Ahead of 2013 NBA Draft

Hours before the Cleveland Cavaliers kicked off the 2013 NBA Draft, Panini announced they had signed more than a dozen players to trading card deals, many of which are exclusives.

Leading the way are Anthony Bennett (UNLV), Nerlens Noel (Kentucky), Ben McLemore (Kansas), Alex Len (Maryland) and Otto Porter (Georgetown).

Under the terms of the deal, Panini gets rights to produce autographed trading cards of the featured players. Panini holds exclusive rights to produce NBA trading cards.

The first rookie cards and autographs of these players arrive in October with 2013-14 NBA Hoops.

Here's a full list of all 16 players coming to agreements with Panini. Non-exclusives are noted:

  • Anthony Bennett (UNLV)
  • Trey Burke (Michigan)
  • Kentavious Caldwell-Pope (Georgia)
  • Michael Carter-Williams (Syracuse)
  • Jamaal Franklin (San Diego State) - non-exclusive
  • Tim Hardaway Jr. (Michigan) - non-exclusive
  • Shane Larkin (Miami) - non-exclusive
  • Alex Len (Maryland)
  • C.J. McCollum (Lehigh)

  • Shabazz Muhammad (UCLA)
  • Nerlens Noel (Kentucky)
  • Victor Oladipo (Indiana)
  • Otto Porter (Georgetown)
  • Dennis Schroeder (Germany) - non-exclusive

Editor's Note (6/28/13): We updated the story to reflect that the original announcement from Panini stated all players were exclusives when in fact some were non-exclusive deals.

  1. This is just terrible for the hobby. Anytime ONE company has the rights EVERYONE suffers. Can’t wait to see overproduced event worn Panini crap
