Panini released a sneak peak at a new basketball product recently, 2012 Past & Present basketball. The product will be released May 9th and each 20-pack box will contain 3 autographs, one memorabilia card and around 20 inserts.
There will be two different vintage-themed base designs and a short-printed variation. There are a couple of different autograph sets include Elusive Ink, autos of some of the tougher to find signers, and Modern Marks, autos of current players. In an odd turn there will not be any inserted rookie cards from 2011-12 or 2012-13, they will all be redemption cards.
I like what I see so far of the set, it reminds me of Fleer sets from the 90s especially the base card and the Fireworks and Raining 3s inserts. I look forward to when they release more information about the set. The Durant base card looks pretty cool.
