Panini America Offers an Unexpected Sneak Peek at 2015-16 NBA Hoops Basketball

Panini America 2015-16 NBA Hoops Basketball Unexpected Peek1

I stepped away from my desk earlier this morning to take a quick phone call from my oldest son, who was at home with his younger brother enjoying one of those blissful “Teacher In-Service Days.” As I ducked into the dark main conference room inside Panini America HQ, I scanned the four corners and took quick inventory of the products on display while listening to my 14-year-old talk about his Nutter Butter breakfast. That’s when I noticed what appeared to be a partially broken box of 2015-16 NBA Hoops Basketball in the back corner of the room.

I encouraged my kid to at least mix in a little milk and rushed off the phone for a closer look at this particular box of 2015-16 NBA Hoops Basketball, a product that doesn’t release for another 11 days. As far as I could tell, this was an early box off the production line probably brought over for a production meeting earlier this week.

The box was missing some cards but what remained was more than enough to provide an unexpected preview of the first NBA product of the 2015-16 season. After showing the cards to Panini America Brand Manager Cory Hollingsworth, he informed me that many of them were short-printed inserts from the product.

Obviously, we’ll have plenty more to preview on 2015-16 NBA Hoops Basketball in the coming days. But for now, enjoy the random results of one happened-upon box that made for an unexpected Friday morning diversion.
