Panini Intrigue Basketball to Return…A Little Earlier

Panini is preparing for the second edition of a product that debuted just four months ago.  2013-14 Panini Intrigue Basketball will return this spring with four autograph or memorabilia cards in each 11-card box.

Slam Ink will feature on-card autographs of some of the NBA’s high flyers, such as Blake Griffin and Vince Carter.

First Flight Unis will showcase the league’s top stars in the uniform of the first team they played for.

Rookie Impact Autographs are signed cards from the 2013 NBA draft class including Michael Carter-Williams.

The Intriguing Players insert gets a makeover.  This season’s release will have die-cutting on 20 of the NBA’s top players who are featured with ten different parallels numbered to as low as one if you’re into identical cards with different colors.   There will be five Intriguing Players cards per pack.

2013-14 Panini Intrigue Basketball is set for a late April release.  Last year’s version was issued in a tin.

There was no immediate word on a price point.
