Hope everyone is doing well and enjoyed their Labor Day. I uploaded the pics to Blogger weeks ago and promptly ran out of free time to finish the post. Yes, a pack of this was already posted, but I had the pics already in the folder, so here's a pack of 2016-2017 Panini NBA Hoops!
The pack The King posted almost a year ago was from a blaster box, so technically this is a different pack...it came from the Target gravity feeder box. 10 cards in a pack...lets see what I got:
#99 = Ian Mahinmi
#35 = Mike Conley
I like the border design, but sometimes the name can be hard to read, like with the Conley above, I also kinda prefer the transaction note on the card as opposed to the player photoshopped into his new uniform.
#90 - Emmanuel Mudiay
#141 - Ricky Rubio
The set is 300 cards total, with cards 261 - 300 reserved for the rookies.
#266 - Buddy Hield (RC)
#173 - Mo Williams
Buddy's one of the more recognizable rookies from last year, mainly because of the DeMarcus Cousins trade.
#5 - Ish Smith (#10/25)
#11 - Derrick Rose
There's no need for me to post my pack of 2016-17 Panini Donruss NBA since Madding took care of it, but they used the same Rose picture in their set. That put a sour taste in my mouth, putting an end to my basketball purchases this past year. Why use the transaction note for Ian Mahinmi but not for D-Rose?
As usual, there are no odds listed for the Orange parallel.
#222 - Omer Asik
#169 - Aaron Brooks
See, Panini, a transaction note for a former Bull!
Here are the backs, but you already know what they look like:
Anyway, that's the pack. Hope everyone enjoys the short work week, and thanks for reading!
