I really need to get myself in gear, several packs have come and gone that I meant to post, but by time I got myself motivated, somebody else already posted them!
What better motivation is there than the first set of a brand new season?
Hoops is Panini's Flagship set, and this is the 5th year they have produced it. (The Hoops brand is owned by the NBA, which is why it's been produced by 4 different manufacturers now) The set is 300 cards, as is usual, composed of 260 veterans and 40 rookies. Each hobby pack gives you 13 cards, although marked as 12, there is a promo card for the Panini Dunk digital system in each pack. Each pack gives one rookie card and one non-base card, either an insert or a parallel. The parallels look better this year than ever before but they are harder to find- my box yielded only one Green, three Gold, 2 Silver (#'d to 299), one Artist Proof (#'d to 99) and 4 red back. Personally I would rather they did away with the red back and give us more Gold and Green. By time you read this, I will have posted a full box breakdown/review on Cardboard History.
I received the box as a late birthday present, and debated doing the first pack or the best pack, but went with the first one, as the best will be well covered on my own blog.
#241 Jamal Crawford. Enjoy that Clippers road uniform, because the one that replaced it for 2015-16 is the worst jersey in NBA history.
Ersan Ilyasova) is a traded card, the first time I can recall that happening.
#299 Rondae Hollis-Jefferson, my first pack's rookie...nice to see it was from my long-time favorite team. The rookie cards feature a different design this season, the first time that has been the case in the Panini era of Hoops. (They didn't bother to include any rookies at all in the lockout shortened 2011-12!)
Here's the back of the cards.
