Each 24-pack box (suggested retail price $4 per pack) will include two autographs — one of those a Rookie Class letter patch — and two memorabilia cards. Also inside each box will be 18 insert cards, three of which will be serial-numbered.
Each 12-box case will include an autograph from Larry Bird, Magic Johnson, Willis Reed, Kareem Abdul-iabbar, John Havlicek, Isiah Thomas or No. 1 draft pick Blake Griffin.
