While it’s the second product to come out for the NBA season from the folks at Panini, it is surely going to be the most widely opened product of the short season. 2011-12 Panini NBA Hoops basketball is being brought back from the dead and will feature everything you loved about the set in the past, mixed with everything you love about cards today, and a few surprises.
The set is there. 279 cards to fill out the base set that features a ton of players on each roster. Have a hard time finding cards of your player in most sets? Hoops will probably have it. For instance, I’ll be looking for some Nicolas Batum. There will also be a special “Champions” base card to round out the set that is kind of a chase card, making the full set a fun challenge to complete.
Something you love about today? There is a 179 card autograph subset also in this set surely to make you go crazy looking for autographs. While each hobby box will feature two autographs, you may get lucky and pull one from some of the top players in the game. You may find a Kobe Bryant, Blake Griffin, Kevin Durant, Chris Paul, or Dirk Nowitski autograph lurking in your box. You may also find some original buyback autographs of autographs on card from the 1989-90 NBA Hoops original set.
Did I mention yet that the price for this product is about $2 per pack in hobby form? Yeah, we’re liking that here. Get ready on March 3rd, 2012, for your NBA Hoops revival.
