2 Box Break of 2012-13 Panini Preferred Basketball

Here are 2 boxes of the new 2012-13 Panini Preferred Basketball.  First box was very nice.  Second was so-so.  I am not completely crazy about the packaging as the booklet card is just sitting in the pack and you can see it right away.  You can’t tell who is on the booklet, but you can see the name of it and what it is numbered to.  Kind of takes some of the fun out of it.  The 3 packs are in their own little spot.  The packs are a little tough to open because there is only one card in it, especially the ones with a die-cut.  I would recommend using scissors to prevent damage.  The cards look really nice in person.  All the autographs are on card and look really sharp.  The one booklet which has patches is truly awesome.  Here is how is broke down:

Box 1:

Kendall Marshall Panini’s Choice Red Auto #ed 13/99


Trey Thompkins Panini’s Choice Red Auto #ed 16/99


Darius Johnson-Odom Panini’s Choice Red Auto Redemption

BUCKETS Booklet Patch Version #ed 03/25 Kobe Bryant/LeBron James/Paul Pierce/Russell Westbrook/Chris Paul/Stephen Curry/James Harden



Box 2:

Gustavo Ayon Panini’s Choice Red Auto #ed 38/99

Derrick Williams Rookie Silhouettes Auto Jersey #ed 82/99


ROOKIE Booklet Jersey #ed 100/249 Evan Fournier/Jonas Valanciunas/Enes Kanter/Bismack Biyombo/Jan Vesely/Nikola Vucevic



Like I said, the cards look great.  That Booklet Patch is awesome!  I think there will be some really nice cards in this stuff.  One or two boxes might be risky, but I fell like a case will give you some really nice stuff.
