First look: 2012-13 Panini Marquee
Panini America has yet another new basketball brand up its sleeve in this, the post-lockout full card year of 2012-13.
It’s Marquee, and it will include marquee-worthy printing tricks when it arrives later this year.
Hobby boxes will include 20 packs, three autographs and 35 Rookie Cards from a 150-card base set. A selection of the rookies will be signing for this product as has been the case throughout this season with its double-RC class.
Insert-wise, there will be 10 insert sets to chase — five of those signed — with a coach’s autograph set among the notables and Election Night autographs showcasing Hall of Famers.
The Swirlorama will be applied to the Slam Dunk Legends insert, while acetate also returns with the Champions insert, a 20-card release. The previously mentioned laser-cut cards will be rookies, while the Stars of the Night inserts will be printed on black holographic board.

I hope it has 100 rookies like all the other released this year...Collecting LeBron James, ANYTHING and EVERTYTHING. Emphasis on RCs!
Also LF: Irving, Varejao, Ilgauskas, Gibson, Waiters (RC), and Anthony Bennett (RC) in that order. Hidden Content
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!

Ah, missed the context surrounding that for the rookies. Bummer.
Panini is really going nuts with sets this year, a la early 2000s Fleer. Why not go more conservative - just have ONE set with 100 rookies, and a handful of other quality sets rather than a dozen? Stick to Hoops, Threads, Prizm, Totally Certified, and then maybe one or two other mid or high end sets. Is the market and industry really such that they have to put out so many mediocre to subpar products?
