Here is the complete checklist for Threads provided by Panini America: 2012-13 Panini Threads BK Checklist
|We landed a rare blue parallel of Drew Gooden|
|Blue parallels are numbered to 10|
|Kobe Anthology Insert. One 5 card pack per box of 12/13 Panini NBA cards|
|Back of the Kobe's|
INSERTS:The inserts are nothing spectacular but where they lack in design they make up for in photography. Inserts like High Flyers and Talented Twosomes stand out for how the players are photographed. I do like the design of the Kobe Anthology. But my favorite insert that we landed at least six of has to be the player jersey die cuts. Die cuts have always been a hobby favorite. The base cards also have other parallels.
OVERALL THOUGHTS:A good base card design, 3 autographs per box and the one jersey or Prime hit you could get makes this product well worth spending under $100 to get. With some big name rookies to chase and with them being signed on card a lot of collectors will enjoy this product.
