I hate NT (and Panini in general) but I agree with you guys, it's great to see patches of players like Sam Jones, Earl Monroe and Elgin Baylor. It makes you wonder why they haven't been released until now? (Although I know Monroe patches existed). Did they suddenly find an old Sam Jones jersey lying around or something?!
