2013-14 Pinnacle Basketball
Here's another familiar brand name from the past that has been assimilated and rebirthed by the Panini monolith. Let's check it.
251 - Dikembe Mutombo - This is not a bad card to start with at all. This particular design focuses on the player and makes the background pretty incidental.
61 - Jared Sullinger - Here's a look at the back of the card. There might be some stats in there if you use a magnifying glass.
19 - Cody Zeller - The Bobcats era of Charlotte basketball is going to go down as a weird footnote, as the city will reclaim the Hornets nickname (and color scheme) next season if I'm not mistaken.
75 - Damian Lillard Artist Proof Red - Here's a big score for me, the big Blazers fan. Lillard was last season's Rookie of the Year and became the first player in league history to participate in five separate All-Star Events.
5 - Harrison Barnes Team 2020 - Here's an insert, I think. I like Golden State's jerseys as long as they're not the dreaded sleeved version.
7 - George Gervin Position Powers - Another insert. There's usually a decent amount of historical players in NBA sets, which is nice.
184 - Ersan Ilyasova - No one is going to take pro basketball in Wisconsin seriously looking like this.
141 - Al Horford - And here's an Al to finish things up.
