Presented is one of the most significant unopened cases we've ever had the privilege of offering and one of the most desirable modern cases ever produced: a factory sealed and unopened hobby case of 2012-2013 Panini Prizm Basketball featuring twelve unopened boxes, each containing twenty packs housing six cards, for a total of 1,440 cards from this desirable modern basketball issue. Representing the first year of Panini Prizm Basketball production, this case offers the extremely rare opportunity to acquire an undisturbed collection of boxes from this prominent basketball-card issue, which provides collectors with access to the most desirable rookie cards produced for a dual rookie class (2011 and 2012 drafts) highlighted by Kawhi Leonard, Anthony Davis, Klay Thompson, Kyrie Irving, Kemba Walker, Damian Lillard, Draymond Green, Jimmy Butler, Bradley Beal, and Tobias Harris as well as the first Prizm cards of superstars like LeBron James and Kobe Bryant. A 300-card base set, along with numerous parallels and autograph inserts, makes this set one modern-card collecting's most popular and enduring issues. Hobby boxes are preferable to retail boxes as they offer more favorable insert distribution, and according to Panini's production information, each box contains two autograph cards, two insert cards, and two Prizm cards, which could be Silver Prizms or the highly sought after Gold Prizms numbered out of ten. This case comes shrink-wrapped by Baseball Card Exchange (owned by Steve Hart, the foremost expert on unopened material). The "factory-sealed" distinction is particularly important and makes the offered case even more impressive as it has never been opened and comes exactly as it came off the line from Panini in 2012! The original factory seals are intact with very minor outer box wear. The significance of this case cannot be overstated; Panini Prizm is an issue that revolutionized the modern-card hobby and is among the hottest products produced year after year. To find a sealed case from the inaugural year, especially nearly a decade down the road and years after its value and importance was known, is virtually unheard of. This is a remarkable opportunity to acquire a sealed case of this premiere modern basketball card issue, which ranks at the top of the list of the most significant basketball-card issues ever produced. The size/weight of this item requires that there will be an additional shipping charge for this lot. Reserve $25,000. Estimate (open).
