PC TUESDAY: 2012 & 2013 Stained Glass Derrick Rose

Too big, too strong, too fast...too good! The youngest NBA MVP and the most explosive point guard ever. Born and raised in Chicago, DRose created amazing memories on the court, and has provided a major impact to foundations in the city off the court. One of my favorite players ever to wear a Bulls uniform, he might be the biggest "what if" story in NBA history. 

 

During 2012 & 2013 Panini had just acquired the NBA license and were producing cards that were beautiful and innovative.  These early years of Panini Basketball cards represented a time that Panini wanted to push the envelope and create high quality cards that were creative and captured the heart of the collector.

 

These two stained glass cards are great examples of this era. These cards came out of a product called Innovation.  This product provided a variety of designs and print techniques to create unique and beautiful set including memorabilia, autos, base, and acetate cards.

 

2012 Stained Glass cards were one "subset" that featured 100 players, and were inserted one per pack. These cards were printed on an embossed acetate and provided the appearance of classic art stained glass windows. There was a base "magenta" background (pictured in post) as well as a "purple" that was more rare.

 

In 2013 th 100 card set (75 veterans, 25 rookies) included more parallels and a different background pattern for the veterans and rookies. Parallels include the base green accent, Gold accent (pictured in post), and a teal accent SSP case promo. Collectors have estimated a little over 200 of each player were produced of which there are about 50 golds and only 20 teals.

 

Today the stained glass inserts live on, but are simply a printed design on the chromium stock.  While they are still highly desired by collectors, they pale in comparison to the original cards. In my opinion, the 2012 & 2013 stained glass cards are some of the most beautiful and innovative cards produced during the Panini era!

 

The combination of a beautiful card design and one of my all-time favorite Bulls, makes this a pair one that won't leave the PC.

Observation: Are people trading more than buying?

I have no data to back this up but I have a thesis that since everyone went all-in on collecting over the last 3+ years that we’ve (myself included) amassed a ton of cards that we don’t PC that we’re trying to move…in bulk?…and the quickest way to do so is to trade: 5 cards out (that you don’t PC) for one card (that you do).

Thus: trades have gone up up up.

Has anyone noticed trades are going UP in the hobby? Don’t get me wrong, I love trading - a lot. But I feel like more and more I’m getting messages for stuff I have for sale asking if I’ll accept trades instead.

Is it happening more and more? Just an observation, curious if anyone else is seeing it as well…

Shoutout for the update to the Mantelpiece. Had been wanting to add a few that I hadn't seen in Card Hedge & while I had tried the "submit card" option - the manual upload being there to immediately do it yourself is a great move!

Already added one of my favourite Port Adelaide cards to it, will be doing a few more over the next week! If you haven't utilised the function yet, highly recommend it as just a cool way to display PC pieces on your profile - looks like the plan is in place to add functionality for different collectibles soon as well with the "More Coming Soon!"

The “All American”

Post image 1

Brian Stann is a fellow U.S. Naval Academy grad who went on to serve in the Marine Corps and earn himself the Silver Star for his actions during the Global War on Terror.

After his active duty service, Stann would become the WEC Light Heavyweight Champion and compete in the UFC before taking his talent outside of the ring, commentating alongside Rogan and Anik.

I don’t have much of a PC but this autographed and inscribed “All American” figure makes the cut.

PC TUESDAY: Bill Cartwright

Post image 1
Post image 2

Yet another classic Bull from the first 3-peat, Bill Cartwright was brought to the Bulls via trade in 1988 in exchange for 2 draft picks + Charles Oakley.  Cartwright ended up being the missing piece at center, as he was the Bulls' starting center during their string of three consecutive NBA championships in 1991, 1992 and 1993. 

After his playing days were over Cartwright joined the Bulls once again as an assistant coach under Phil Jackson ahead of the 1996–97 NBA season. He was a member of the championship-winning teams in 1997 and 1998. He eventually became head coach for the 2002 – 2003 season and was fired in 2004.



With a funky shot wind up and a distinctive hoarse voice, “Big Bill” was a fan favorite and a crucial piece to 3 Bulls championship teams!
