We got an early glimpse at 2009-10 Panini NBA Season Update today and it appears that the autograph and memorabilia card odds are better than first reported. Like, two times better.

Preliminary information indicated that each 24-pack box would yield one autograph card and two memorabilia cards. But the box we opened earlier today included two autographs (including a redemption for a Patrick Mills Prestige Draft Picks Rights) and four memorabilia cards.

No word from Panini America officials yet on whether this is an across-the-board odds adjustment or if Hot Boxes exist.

The catch-all, season-in-review product includes updated photography from the NBA season’s second half, Highlights cards honoring team and individual milestones and Christmas Cards featuring pieces of game-worn jerseys from the NBA’s Christmas games last year. (While the Christmas Cards are actually a really nice touch, it seems a little odd pulling them from a new product in late August.)

The product also strives to provide checklist-finishing autographed “updates” to a handful of previous 2009-10 Panini NBA products, including Prestige, Threads and Rookies and Stars.

Stay tuned to Beckett.com Friday for what promises to be a scintillating Box Busters episode on the product, which release next Wednesday. For now, enjoy this image-heavy sneak peek:

    I used to refer to Beckett as my dictionary way back when I was collecting NBA cards. I was somehow surprised to see a blog site dedicated to it.

    I think we’ll do it on Tuesday. (Been waiting for some other stuff to arrive and shoot them all at once.)
