Panini offers cool tribute to the Late Flip Saunders

As a Minnesota Timberwolves fan, it's hard to believe that we are already reaching a year since his death. In Minnesota, we were blessed with having him as a Timberwolves coach two different times. Both in the 90s/early 2000s, and then from 2014-15 (Also serving as president of basketball operations).

Saunders was a man who had a huge impact on players both on and off the court, some of them being Kevin Garnett, and the young up-and-coming stars Andrew Wiggins & Karl Anthony-Towns.

Panini is paying tribute to him in the form of "Flip" patches (found in Panini Flawless) that were worn by his players to honor him after his death.

As you can see, they look pretty sweet:
