Hoops collectors, your wait is almost over.

With the official release date of 2010-11 Panini Classics Basketball now less than 24 hours away, we felt now was a swell time to unveil just a few of the gorgeous goodies highlighting a product that this year boasts a refreshingly abundant amount of on-card autographs — from rookies, current stars and legends alike — and the familiar recipe that has made Classics a traditional hobby favorite.

If the following images don’t sufficiently whet your appetite, you can find more compelling coverage on the product herehere and here.

Now, on to the eye candy . . .

    Sweet cards- but I don’t see a John Wall classics auto here- does that mean it’s going to be a redemption? Will certain players be SP’ed?

      Need to check on Wall; but some of the autographed RCs are more limited than others.

    I’m curious about something. This product was pushed back a couple of weeks from its original release date. That happens with some regularity in the hobby. What is the reason for a delay like that? Is it to try to reduce the number of redemptions? Something else? Just wondering.

      Fair question, Jim. You nailed it, though. We rarely ever like moving release dates, but if doing so buys us enough time to dramatically decrease the number of redemptions in a product, we will do it.
