2011-12 Past & Present Basketball Begins to Take Shape: A Panini America Mini Gallery

April 12, 2012

Strolling down the aisle in the Panini America production department earlier this week, I was struck by a vibrantly-hued uncut sheet of throwback bliss standing guard next to Production Manager Andre Jackson.
Upon closer inspection, that oversized spectacle turned out to be my first live look at the stunning Bread for Health insert in the upcoming 2011-12 Past & Present Basketball. From the captivating combination of colors to the aging of the primary photos, there’s a lot to love in this reimagining of an old-school classic.

Just hours later, some of the first on-card autographs from the product — in this case cards from the Modern Marks insert — arrived back in Acquisitions. Short story long, I felt it was time to share some of this sneak-peek goodness with loyal readers of The Knight’s Lance.
Enjoy, and stay tuned for additional updates.
