Panini America unveiled the basic product preview information and sample card images on Wednesday for its 2009-10 Classics basketball set, which is scheduled to arrive on March 31.
Set to pack four autograph or memorabilia cards in each 18-pack box (one autograph guaranteed), Classics will celebrate basketball’s past as well as its present as the line has done for years in baseball and football. Each 16-box case will include an autograph from either Panini spokesman Kobe Bryant, Magic Johnson, Blake Griffin, Elvin Hayes, Isiah Thomas or Jerry West.
Five-card packs will carry a suggested retail price of $6.
