    Panini makes its first foray into Basketball with Prestige. Players are featured in a full-color action shot from a game. The first 110 cards contain current/veteran players and the next 40 are reserved for legends/retired players. There are a total of 100 rookie subjects to complete the full 250 card set.

    There are numerous insert sets that populate Prestige. There is a mix between unnumbered and numbered cards. Most of the sets feature veteran stars, but there are a couple devoted to the rookie class. The expected ratio between the inserts (unnumbered and numbered) should fall 1:1 on average.

    With four autographs or memorabilia cards on average, expect a nice bang for the buck. The NBA Draft 09 autographs are on-card, which is always appreciated. Though many are against sticker autos, they help the autographs stand out on the regular cards. If they were on-card as well, they would be very difficult to read or notice with the dark colors of many of the uniforms.

    There's been a lot of anticipation since the announcement that Panini had the exclusive rights to produce NBA licensed cards toward the end of 2009. Through the criticism, Panini has emerged with a great start into their basketball line. Though the design is bit too much on the base cards, primarily the bottom portion, the product is superb. Consumers can expect a rookie in every pack and an additional non-base card in every three out of four packs. With four hits on average, Prestige is a wonderful product at it's price point. And as seen here, how often do you find products that could yield 3 autographs out of 4 hits in a box?

    Once again, I'd like to thank our wonderful sponsors at Panini America for giving us the opportunity to open and review this release. For more information on this product or the rest of their line, be sure to check them out at www.paniniamerica.net.
