Just for grins, let’s take quick inventory of everything that next week’s release of 2012-13 NBA Hoops Basketball, the first NBA product of the new season, has in store for collectors.

A historic massive Double Rookie Class? Check. The first official Rookie Cards of Kyrie Irving, Kenneth Faried, Anthony Davis and so many other young superstars from the 2011 and 2012 NBA Draft Classes? Check. A $2 pack price? Check. Glossy and Artist’s Proofs parallels? Check. The triumphant return of NBA coach cards? Check. Autograph cards seeded two per box? Check. Compelling inserts such as Courtside, Board Members, Rookie Impact, Draft Night, Spark Plugs and Action Photos? Check. Super-tough, less-than-two-per-case pulls such as Kobe’s All-Rookie Team and a special Champions card honoring the Miami Heat? Check.
