Today marks the release of 2012-13 Panini Threads Basketball, Panini’s third release of the season. Our good friends Keith Hower and Tracy Hackler at the Knight’s Lance, the official blog of Panini America, celebrated the release of the new Threads cards by filming a box break for our viewing pleasure.
For those collectors out there with no prior knowledge of Threads, each hobby box contains 24 packs containing five cards each, in addition to three guaranteed autographs and one memorabilia card. Each box, as is the case with every hobby box of 2012-13 Panini NBA cards, also contains a bonus pack of Kobe Bryant anthology cards.
One of the unique touches to Threads is the autographed (on-card!) rookie cards printed on actual wood. An example can be seen on the right.
Be sure to watch the entire video below to catch a sneak peek of 2012-13 Panini Prizm Basketball.
