The Panini QC Gallery: 34 Must-See Images from 2010-11 Elite Black Box Basketball

September 07, 2011

All this well-earned, high-end hullabaloo surrounding the September 14 release of 2010-11 Dominion Hockey has shifted many hobby eyes away from the fact that Panini America has another super-premium product primed for release next week: 2010-11 Elite Black Box Basketball.

Indeed, the Panini America printing facility is a hotbed of activity this week with both products packing out simultaneously.

The good news, of course, is that packout is always closely followed by the vaunted Quality Control gallery. I was met earlier today by a spirited Panini America basketball team of David Porter and Keith Hower that was gawking over the results of Elite Black Box’s first QC case.

When they gawk, there’s usually a pretty good reason. In this case, there were 34 good reasons — and you can see them all in the gallery that follows.
