2012-13 Panini Preferred: Anybody buying it?
Wondered if anyone on the board was buying 2012-13 Panini Preferred basketball? I wanted to pick up some boxes because their silhouette design is something I really like. But then I read that there were 250 autographs in the product and the odds of pulling someone really good seemed pretty hard to do so I have backed off. Then I saw the two box break Tracy Hackler did for the blog Knight's Tale and while one box had the Kobe silhouette in it,the second box was pretty weak with zero silhouettes in it. Very, very limited review but it seems liked a very hit or miss product.
Just wondered what you thought of the product?

Called the owner of one of our locals to see if he had Preferred. One case in the store, so I was thinking about heading over to try a box after work. About 30 minutes after I called the owner called me to tell me the case was gone as a customer came in an opened it.
Looks like I dodged a bulllet, owner said zip on any of what would be considered a big hit from the case. He guessed most of the boxes the total value of the autographs if you were selling would yield a $35. to $50 return on a $200 box. He could not remember any specific silhouette cards as he said most of the boxes in this case came with all triangle autos.
Hammybone is right, just wait and buy the singles I think I might want.

Yeah I agree - I am buying some singles now and getting them cheap. I think last years product looked better, but some of the booklets are cool like the rivals and finals.ROCK CHALK JAYHAWK!!!!
