When is the totally cerified basketball cards coming out the date of release?
I can’t wait for this years Classics, these cards are slick as grease.
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.
I’m liking the color!!! These rookie auto’s are solid. I loved last year’s too!!!
So clean and crisp looking!
Hey T, Great design.
Glad you like it, man.
I love the colors! I love the design! Everything just pops out at you. Great work by the design team. I can’t wait to get my hands on these.
Unrelated question but do you know when National Treasures basketball is going to be coming out?
