2012/2013 Panini Signatures Basketball Box Break & Review

Design:  photo 35basketball.jpg

Nice thick card stock, but Panini went with a slightly boxy look again.  Not all of these cards look like that, but enough do.  The on-card autographs like the Marvin Williams I pulled look really good.  It has a nice black and white image with a blue ink signature right through the middle.  The signed film cards don’t look that bad either.  This is the first time Panini has issued film cards for basketball.

Price:  photo 3basketball.jpg

Boxes are currently selling for $100.00.

“Hit” Quality:  photo 35basketball.jpg

This product gets to business fast.  Every box has one pack containing three autographs.  I like how the additional cards are numbered to 25 or less.

I pulled the following:

Autos

  • Marvin Williams On-Card Auto #’ed/49
  • Norris Cole Sticker Auto #’ed/99
  • Detlef Schrempf Signatures Film Red Redemption #’ed/49

Parallel

  • Chris Paul Chase Stars Green #’ed/5

Base

  • Gary Payton Chase Legends #’ed/25

Overall:  photo 35basketball.jpg

Overall, I give 2012/2013 Panini Signatures 3.5 basketballs out of 5 (1=poor & 5=perfect).  Despite some of the boxy look, many of the on-card autographs came out well.  Its a quick thrill product that does have some set building qualities that you normally don’t see.  Set collectors should have fun tracking down all 10 versions of the Chase Stars Green cards.  In my opinion, if you have the extra money, go for a box of 2012/2013 Elite Series.  The glass cards Panini made for that product are top notch and are some of the best basketball cards they’ve ever made.
