Get out the Windex. Panini America is producing glass cards.

Well, sort of. The premiere edition of Elite Series Basketball, which will debut in late May, will contain an Elite Glass card — a thick, backboard-inspired card that has a glass-like look to it.

Expect one Elite Glass in every 10-card hobby box, on average.

But the 2012-13 Elite Series will contain more than just glass. Panini is promising an average of four autographs, too. That’s a fairly high-end set.

The product will consist of a 275-card base set and 14 different insert sets. Seven of those insert sets will be autograph cards. There will be a 100-card Court Kings subset, plus Passing the Torch autographs, Aspirations and Status die-cuts, plus Inscriptions autographs.

Panini is not releasing complete information about the product yet, but some of the inserts will include Court Vision and Rookie Elite Series cards.

The thick cards will certainly be intriguing. More information will be released soon.
