Panini America 2012-13 Momentum Basketball QC (1)

The subtle aesthetic nuances that worked so well in 2012 Momentum Football last season are on beautiful display in Panini America’s 2012-13 Momentum Basketball, the hardcourt debut of a brand with collectible roots planted deep in 1990s football. Clearly, though, the Momentum brand crosses over brilliantly to the NBA.

But while the raised-UV design element that brings every base card to life in 2012-13 Momentum Basketball owes its presence to similar stylings in last fall’s football release, there are an abundance of new twists to 2012-13 Momentum Basketball — such as deft die-cuts, a wealth of on-card autographs and the mesmerizing Drive parallels — sure to influence every new Momentum release in the future.

Panini America 2012-13 Brilliance Basketball Preview (1)

Panini America’s basketball big-hitters just keep coming. While many collectors still are enjoying the primest of pulls from recently released products such as 2012-13 Momentum Basketball, 2012-13 Past & Present Basketball and 2012-13 Preferred Basketball, the company has another must-bust NBA release planned to drop on Wednesday: 2012-13 Brilliance Basketball.

From a pure aesthetics standpoint, Brilliance boasts an enchanting combination of surface textures, old-fashioned embossing and finely finished surfaces that should appeal to collectors in completely different ways than the other products mentioned above. There’s also a wealthy share of autograph and memorabilia inclusions in Brilliance that will find a permanent home in many a collection.
