First look: 2012-13 Select basketball cards
Select has returned.
Panini America announced on Thursday that it’s reviving an early 1990s creation — Select — and bringing it back on the hardwood.
The company revealed 2012-13 Select, will arrive in March with nods to the past Score brand and nods to a new line, Prizm, which launched late last month. The brand originally arrived back in 1993 with Score for baseball and then has been used throughout the years as part of the Donruss/Playoff portfolio of trademarks, which is now owned by Panini. It was last used in 2008 for a football set.
The newest product will include two seven-pack mini boxes per box with a total of four autographs, four Prizm cards and six more inserts.

Looks like another crappy Panini product woth way to many rc autos and not enough star auto cards and it's going to be over priced and extremely hard to complete the set including inserts.

@rocksaysits420, I totally agree with you! I wish that for once they would make a product thats about current and legendary superstars, and where any rookie you hit is just an added bonus. All of these products are packed with an insane amount of scrub rookies. So far with this years panini products you really only have a serious chance to pull three good autos (Kobe, Irving, Davis) and they only value at around the price of 1 to 1.5 box.
I would wish that for once they would make a product in the likes of UD Premier or Black. But i guess they dont have nearly enough stars under contract to make a product like that work (No Jordan, LeBron, Wade, Ewing, Barkley, Garnett, K.Malone, Duncan, D.Howard etc.)
Heck even Leaf understands it better, so far their products have had great chances at pulling a Pippen, Malone, Rodman or Lillard auto (even though its not in pro uni).
I'll pass on select.My Bucket: Hidden Content

MJ owns part of Upper Deck so UD would flood the market with Jordan autographs to stay afloat thus never going out of business and thus preventing him from signing for another company. The only way he signs for Panini is if they buy out Upper Deck. And man oh man whoever decided to latch Upper Deck onto Jordan was a genius because that's basically the only thing that has kept UD in business the past couple of years.

YES!!! Another Panini product with 100 rookie autographs this year, just what I was hoping for...Collecting LeBron James, ANYTHING and EVERTYTHING. Emphasis on RCs!
Also LF: Irving, Varejao, Ilgauskas, Gibson, Waiters, Zeller and Thompson in that order.
I trade by BDV (Ben Denham Value). I will use BV and SV as a starting point, but in the end it is all about what it is worth to me!

They should cut it down to 15-20, there's no need to have 50 of the 60 players drafted knowing more than likely that 50 of them are not going to make it in the league.

The reason I will not be buying this or any other Panini product this year is because, to paraphrase TLC...
A scrub is a guy who thinks he's fly
But he has no real future
Always stinkin' up my box breaks
And just sits on my trade list
I don't want your auto (no)
I don't want to buy your card (no)
I don't want to pull it either (no)
I don't want none of your cards and (no)
I don't want no scrubs
A scrub is a guy with lame cards from Panini
I don't want my case hit to be
Cause he don't get P.T.
Wasting my good money
I don't want no scrubs
A scrub is a guy whose card I don't wanna see
Filling me with with regret
Cause he's all I get
From a box that cost $103

Wait 3 months like every other Panini product and you'll be able to pick up this stuff for peanuts. Another lazy Panini rehash, that Bird card is one ugly piece of cardboard.
