Panini's 2013/14 Innovation Looks Like Fun At First Sight
From its conception last year Innovation was just that, Innovative. Bold designs and no real theme, other than inserts best described as "concept" Innovation became a popular product that offered collectors a fun break.
This season, Innovation Basketball is again expanding its insert universe with the fantastically-illustrated — and quite rare — Kaboom!
Set to release June 11, 2013-14 Innovation Basketball will feature 75 View cards numbered to 199 withBlue (#’d to 25), Gold (#’d to 10) and Black (#’d to one) versions. The 25 Rookie View cards will feature the same parallel structure. Base inserts include Swat Team (15 cards), All Rookies (15 cards),Juggernauts (30 cards), Starters Legends (10 cards), Starters (30 cards) and the aforementioned, roughly-one-per-case Kaboom!

Innovation’s autograph lineup features Foundations Ink (numbered to 199 or less) and Top Notch Autographs (numbered to 325 or less), both featuring Gold parallels numbered to 25 or less. New to the signature roster this year are the unique Main Exhibit Signatures and Main Exhibit Rookies Signatures cards boasting on-card autographs and a shadowbox design.
On the memorabilia-card front, 2013-14 Innovation Basketball includes the Stat Line Jerseys (25 cards),Rookie Jumbo Jerseys (25 cards) and Memorable Memorabilia (50 cards) inserts, each numbered to 299 or less and paralleled by Prime versions numbered to 25 or less.
