2012-13 Panini Threads is driven by some unique designs that set it apart from other releases. Rookie autographs, which fall one per box, are printed on a wood-style card stock. With 100 rookies on the checklist spanning two years, some aren't going to amount to much. However, all the top players like Kyrie Irving and Anthony Davis are there.
Another set that stands out are the Team Threads and Team Threads Signatures. Die-cut into the shape of a jersey, the cards opt for the iconography of the logo and number versus a player photo.
2012 Panini Threads has several other autograph and game-used memorabilia inserts that are also attracting attention from collectors.
Below is a real-time ranking of the 50 most-watched 2012-13 Panini Threads Basketball singles currently listed on eBay. The primary factor that influences an auction's popularity is the number of watchers it has, though there are some additional proprietary metrics that factor into the rankings as well.

His collecting origins began with winter bike rides to the corner store, tossing a couple of quarters onto the counter and peddling home with a couple packs of O-Pee-Chee hockey in his pocket. Today, he continues to build sets, go after inserts with cool technologies, chase Montreal Expos and finish off his John Jaha master collection.
I’d like to smack these people who put “rare” on cards that are not. And smack harder those who fall for it.
