As if it weren’t bad enough to think of the possibility of no football this year, we had to deal with the same for basketball. In the end, it worked out as the NBA returned as a great Christmas present. But we are still waiting on Basketball cards for 2011-12. That wait is coming to an end too. One of the many highly anticipated releases is an updated blast from the past, 2011-12 Panini NBA Hoops.
Set for a release date of March 14, Hobby boxes of these retro cards with contemporary updates will contain two autographs per box featuring autographs of Kobe Bryant, Blake Griffin, Kevin Durant, Chris Paul and Dirk Nowitzki, and will include original 1989-90 Hoops BuyBacks featuring on-card autographs. The base set for Hoops will come in at 279-cards.
