New Panini Basketball Set Announced: 09/10 Panini Platinum Basketball

Panini America announced today a new 2009/10 Basketball Set due out to collectors on July 7, 2010. This set might be one of your final chances to get 09-10 NBA Rookies like Tyreke Evans and Stephen Curry.

Each box will contain 18 Packs with 5 Cards Per Pack. Each pack carries a $5.99 SRP and it should be exciting to see the Prizm Parallel Signatures of NBA stars and Rookies.

One suggestion to Panini - as this set is months away - Add redemptions for 2010/11 Rookies (a la Topps Finest did) as when July comes around, basketball collectors will be talking about the new crop set to come in 2010/11.

Panini and L.A. Lakers Team Up

Panini America and the World Champion Los Angeles Lakers have announced a multi-year partnership that will begin on Sunday with the distribution of 20,000 packs of Adrenalyn at the Lakers home game against the Portland Trail Blazers.

“We are excited to announce our multi-year relationship with the World Champion Los Angeles Lakers and look forward to introducing our Adrenalyn Trading Card Game to Lakers fans. Working so closely with Kobe, this was a natural fit and we look forward to a great partnership going forward.” said Scott Prusha, Marketing Manager for Panini America.

You can read more about the deal with the Lakers on Panini's Facebook Page.

Blake Griffin Panini Cards Still Sell Well

It was unfortunate for NBA fans that the #1 overall pick in the draft, Blake Griffin, got hurt early on in the pre-season and never saw any regular season action with the L.A. Clippers. Blake will look to heal up his injured knee and get back on the court next season. Despite the injury, collectors are still paying big bucks for Blake Griffin Panini Rookie Cards.

Sports Card Report recently found a 2009/10 Blake Griffin Panini Certified 1/1 Freshman Fabric Prime Parallel that sold on eBay for $660.00.  Here is an excerpt from their write up on the card.

"The seller did an awful job at promoting this Panini Certified Blake Griffin 1/1 which might have hurt the final price. The title of the auction was "Blake Griffin Jersey Auto #1/1" not putting the words Panini, Certified, Rookie and/or RC, and 09/10 in his title could have cost him a few bucks.  Despite the high price tag, this card was not one of the most watched Panini cards, and many people probably missed this one unless they were specifically searching for Blake Griffin."

Even with the seller not describing the card very well, $660.00 is a big price to pay for a player who has not played in the NBA as of yet. Griffin does have loads of talent, and we look forward to seeing how his career, and card prices progress over the next year.
