    Our Box Break:

    Base Cards

    The base cards have a very smooth foil like surface. The player's main team color is used on the bottom left and right side of the card. There are 100 base cards in the set. The base card we pulled was a Michael Redd #176/199.

    Parallel Cards

    The parallel cards have the same design as the base cards except it has a rainbow like tint to the surface. We pulled a Kobe Bryant Parallel #38/149.

    Glass Cleaners

    The Glass Cleaners insert set features some of the game's best rebounders. The card has a glass backboard in the background with the team logo shown in the middle of the card. We pulled a Kevin McHale #138/149.

    Limited Trios

    The Limited Trios insert set showcases three different players from either a certain team, decade, draft class, or position. There are card combinations of Kobe Bryant/Pau Gasol/Lamar Odom and Kobe Bryant/Kevin Durant/Lebron James. There are 10 different trio cards in this insert set. We pulled a Kareem Abdul-Jabbar/Larry Bird/Magic Johnson #52/149.

    Game Used Cards

    We pulled a Game Used card of Amare Stoudemire #193/199. The Game Used cards are thick and have the same design as the base cards. The jersey swatch is placed directly in the center of the card.

    The second Game Used card we pulled was a Xavier Henry Freshman Jumbo Patch #21/25. This card has a beautiful Jumbo 3 Color Swatch of the featured Rookie on the top left side of the card. The player photo is on the right side of the card.

    Autographed Card

    The Autograph Card we pulled was a James Anderson Freshman Jumbo Patch Numbers Signatures #4/10. These cards have a similar design to the Freshman Jumbo Patch cards. The autograph is a sticker autograph that is directly below the swatch.

    Final Thoughts

    Panini has improved their Limited product compared to last season. The base cards are slick and nicely use different colors to bring out the design of the card. There are numerous insert sets that will appeal to many different collectors. I love the Limited Trios insert set. One of my favorite card designs in this product are the Freshman Jumbo Patch cards which feature multi colored swatches of some of the NBA's rising young stars. In only its second year of releasing basketball cards, I like the future of Panini Basketball products.

    Here is how I would rate this product:

    Value = 5
    Innovation = 4
    Fun and Experience = 4
    Rebuy Value = 5

    I rate this product an A- for Panini!

            The Anderson, and Henry cards are beautiful. Nice looking base cards I really like this product. Boy that Limited Trios insert is just screaming for a triple auto on it.

              Nice review, I also agree that Limited has improved considerably. I also love the freshman jumbo swatches, Panini has packed out some really nice patches!

                  Pretty cool sleek simple design of these cards. Great stuff!

                  I love the knee brace that McHale is wearing.

                  And love the old school cards they are putting in a lot of products these days. And lots of Celtics in everything now. Which is sweet for my collecting addiction!

                    Nice review and the game used cards all look sweet.

                    Would be sweet to get that Trios card autographed too....

                    I do not trade nor buy at "eBay values", unless a card is so rare that it is unlisted.

                      These cards make me wish I had more money. My first exposure to them I saw a guy open 12 boxes/packs in the card shop and was amazed at what i saw him pull. But at $100 bux a box I guess he got what he paid for.

                        These cards look incredible.

                              The two rookies look cool, but I can't see myself buy 1 pack essentially for that amount of money.
