Panini America Provides Pre-Autographed Peek at 2011 Preferred Basketball (Gallery)
In just a matter of days, Panini America NBA acquisitions maven Ivory Tabb will embark on a whirlwind tour around the league to acquire on-card signatures for 2011 Panini Preferred Basketball, the company’s highly anticipated first NBA product of the new season.
But before Tabb can begin her arduous excursion, she must first have cards in hand for the players to sign. And that process began earlier today with the arrival in-house of spectacular first specimens from Preferred’s Crown Royale and Panini’s Choice subsets.
Obviously, these cards aren’t signed and there’s not that many of them to preview just yet, but with collector excitement for new NBA trading cards reaching a fever pitch, we simply couldn’t wait to share them with you as soon as possible.
Enjoy this early look and stay tuned later today or tomorrow. We’ve been told the remaining Preferred cards are headed this way as we speak, so another gallery is sure to be in order.
