How sick would it be to go into a card shop and be buying packs of SP Authentic or Topps Chrome ???? Panini is the most epic fail of all time. GTHP
Never heard this take before.

These may be the best non-RPA rookie autos. I wonder how rare they'll be...

I wonder if Panini would now start making chrome parallels of everything.

Chrome Refractor Flawless, Chrome Refractor Immaculate, Chrome Kaboom, Chrome Refractor From Downtown. Some of these could be good ideas. Haha

This is how I feel too but I guess the whole ticket look goes over well with a lot of people. Maybe Select with have some nice action shots. Given previous releases its doubtful but one can hope!

I'm surprised it's taken this long for Panini to bring back Contenders in basketball because the name itself sells. I haven't followed 12-13 pricing as much lately but when AD stuff went up a few years back his Contenders auto would outsell his Select at $300 and it was a sticker auto.

thats neither here, nor there though. im just shocked they didnt take the "make more money" route and make Optic Contenders as a product
03-04 bowman had paper (regular) bowman autos and bowman chrome autos, itís was pretty cool and a very popular set. I am not a big baseball guy but donít they do the same?

Yes, baseball does that, but they do these three releases

Bowman (with chrome)- Prospect Chrome Autos (are inserts, as minor leaguers are not allow to have MLB cards until they are on the major league roster)

Bowman Chrome - RC Bowman Chrome Autos (are base cards, so they are RCs)

Bowman Draft (with Chrome) - Prospect Chrome Autos with a focus on the draft picks (are inserts, as minor leaguers are not allow to have MLB cards until they are on the major league roster)

The good? The fact it's on card and they used blue pen.

The bad? I agree, especially this late in the season: It's annoying (sacrilege; blasphemous) it's a shoot photo, especially considering the sticker autos of rookies from the preview, of this product, are action shots. (see: Kuzma Up-&-Coming auto)

Released earlier in season? Sure, fine. Feb. 21st? GTFOH.

Also of note: John Collins' auto is much poorer than it was at the beginning of the signing season.

I'd be all in for Status Optic. The posed/non action shots in Contenders are not very exciting.

Chrome sure, SP Authentic started top become garbage toward the end. I think people forget how bad some Topps and UD stuff was. We pretty much only revere Chrome, Finest and Exq.

I think his point is that Panini likes to test new sets by using preview cards.

They got a positive reaction to the Optic previews last year, and ended up making Optic as a late season addition to the schedule. Last year they put those Ascension inserts into a late release and were so pleased with themselves they made a standalone product into one of the first new season releases.

I don't think he's suggesting it will be a standalone this year, but your assertion there is no reason to make the product when it is easy enough to insert it as a insert or parallel is disproven by recent actions. If they are indeed popular I would 100% expect it to be a standalone next year.

Correct. The Optic Versions are listed as "Premium Edition" on the checklist and say prizm on the back.

Agreed
You donít see many products that do well in both sports. Usually one or the other but most often neither LOL
