If you're a frequent visitor to The Knight's Lance, the first thing you'll likely notice about the Quality Control Gallery that follows is that it's substantially more image-packed than most of the ones you've enjoyed. But there's a perfectly good reason for that: Panini America's upcoming 2015-16 NBA Hoops Basketball is more substantial than any NBA Hoops product in recent memory.
If you’re a frequent visitor to The Knight’s Lance, the first thing you’ll likely notice about the Quality Control Gallery that follows is that it’s substantially more image-packed than most of the ones you’ve enjoyed. But there’s a perfectly good reason for that: Panini America’s upcoming 2015-16 NBA Hoops Basketball is more substantial than any NBA Hoops product in recent memory.
The designs are crisp. The inserts abound. The photography is compelling. The chase elements are worthy. The subtle use of foilboard is a welcome departure. In short, 2015-16 NBA Hoops Basketball is the quintessential way to tipoff the 2015-16 NBA collecting season. And we’ve got more than 150 images worth of proof in the gallery below.
Late last week, Panini America Product Development officials spent some quality time over at the production facility across town Quality Controlling the first product of the 2015-16 NBA season in preparation for next Wednesday’s release date. On average, each hobby box of 2015-16 NBA Hoops Basketball will deliver two autographs, 24 Rookie Cards, seven numbered cards, three Red Back variations, two Gold parallels, one Green parallel, one Bird’s Eye View, one Courtside, one Team Leaders and one Triple-Double.
The product also features the roughly one-per-case Kobe’s All-Rookie Team inserts and the short-printed Road to the Finals insert that chronicles every playoff game from last season. We’ll have plenty more on 2015-16 NBA Hoops Basketball in the coming days right here on The Knight’s Lance.
Until then, though, feast your eyes on these . . .
