Panini Peek Preview: 2011-12 NBA Hoops

January 17, 2012

After more than a year of slow, steady buildup that included special preview cards at last year’s NBA All-Star Game, Panini America is finally ready to unveil more details about the highly anticipated return of NBA Hoops to the trading card market.

The company’s 2011-12 NBA Hoops release, set to arrive March 14, is a true-to-theme throwback to the landmark 1989-90 release that will deliver two autographs per box and a massive 279-card base set that digs deep into each team roster, including a special Champions chase card that will round out the set.

2011-12 NBA Hoops boasts a classic, instantly recognizable design sure to be a thing of beauty to longtime basketball collectors and newcomers alike. Highlighting the release is a 179-card Hoops Autographs set featuring the likes of Kobe Bryant, Blake Griffin, Kevin Durant, Chris Paul and Dirk Nowitzki.

Also making NBA Hoops a slam dunk is the special “A Night to Remember” insert set that was selected completely by collectors through a unique vote right here on The Knight’s Lance.

The set’s great photography is bolstered by the inclusion of original 1989-90 Hoops BuyBacks featuring on-card autographs. We’ll have more details on this sparkling new addition to the Panini America NBA lineup soon enough. But for now, feast your eyes on these tantalizing preview images.
