The QC Gallery: 33 Must-See Images from 2010-11 National Treasures Basketball

July 27, 2011

I crossed paths with Panini America NBA product developers David Porter and Keith Hower in the hallway over by Customer Service earlier today. In Porter’s right hand, glowing like a tavern neon, were four tiny black boxes containing some of the cards from the first quality control case of 2010-11 National Treasures Basketball.

Before Porter could say a word, I was on bended knee begging to scan some of the cards before he reintroduced them to the packout process.

Being the gentleman that he is, Porter obliged. Hower, meanwhile, just stood there expressionless, presumably transfixed by what was for lunch.

The gallery that follows details just some of the highlights from that first case. Perhaps they’ll tide you over until the highly anticipated 2010-11 National Treasures Basketball releases next Wednesday.
