Diehard basketball fans know all too well that the 2015-16 NBA regular season doesn’t officially tip off for another eight days. And depending on your level of fandom, that can seem like an excruciatingly long time. But there is good news while you wait: The 2015-16 NBA collecting season begins Wednesday with the highly anticipated release of Panini America’s 2015-16 NBA Hoops Basketball.
A widely adored product that has become as much a season-opening NBA tradition as TNT broadcasts, NBA Hoops returns for the 2015-16 season packing many of the timeless collecting staples that have driven the brand for decades: Colorful photography, the first official Rookie Cards of the new class, the first cards of veterans in their new gear, lots of parallels, lots of inserts and lots of entertainment.
We brought you an extended sneak peek at 2015-16 NBA Hoops Basketball right here on The Knight’s Lance last week. Today, we’re taking you pack by pack through one 24-pack box. Enjoy the early look and stay tuned for additional coverage.
