Yesterday I shared the 20-image gallery Panini posted on their blog of the new Threads basketball cards.
As promised, Panini followed up the sneak peek gallery with a robust, 59-image gallery today. The gallery gives collectors a “one-stop shop” sampling of what they can expect to find in this season’s Threads release.
Click here to check out all of the images, along with the full checklist. If you don’t have Microsoft Excel, you can find the checklist in plain text here.
Below I have highlighted a few of the cards that particularly grabbed my attention.
Here is an example of the wood-stocked autographed rookie cards found in Threads. Just like with the company’s first two releases, Prestige and Hoops, rookies from both the ’11 and ’12 are included.
The rare (one per case), laser-cut insert, Century Stars, can be previewed below. The set features some of the game’s biggest stars, including: Kobe Bryant, Blake Griffin, Kevin Durant and LeBron James.
Similar to the Connections insert set found in Prestige, Threads Boasts the Talented Twosomes set, featuring action shots of dynamic duos from 14 NBA teams.
