Panini Intrigues With Etched Variants Numbered To One
Panini's next release, 2012-13 Intrigue Basketball arrives in Australia in just two weeks and will deliver three autographs and one memorabilia card per box. The obvious highlight will be the inclusion of signed patch rookie cards of both Lillard and Irving but personally I'm liking the clean design, on-card auto's and these etched variants.
These etched inserts (curry pictured below) offer one of the most unique aspects of the product in that every six-card Intrigue pack will include a bonus five-card Intriguing Players pack. This 200-card Intriguing Players set features 10 different cards (each with a different color image) and multiple micro-etched backgrounds of the game’s top 20 players. There are also gold versions numbered to just 10 and Platinum versions numbered to only one.
I'm seeing flashes of Flair Showcase and I think they look amaze.
