Default New Basketball Collector: 2012/13 Hoops Break

Just returning to collecting and have never bought a basketball card before. Picked up a box of Hoops to see how I liked it. Little let down, but I guess what can I expect from the price.

Autos-
Jimmer Fredette
Al Horford

Glossy-
Mike Conley
Terrence Williams
Gerald Henderson
Lebron James
Dirk Nowitzki
Andre Iguodala

Artist's Proof
Evan Turner

Rooks-
Anthony Davis
Kyrie Irving


Not thrilled with the product but do like having a bit of a basketball collection. Any suggestions on another product I should check out?

I actually like the overall look of those cards and looking at the players you got, I would have actually been pretty happy with those cards! I'm not all about the "Hit" though, so I may be in the minority!

What is "Season Update" and who puts it out? I've never heard of that?

i would look over the past products & the upcoming products & see what looks good. hoops is a pretty boring break, i think 12-13 prestige looks boring too, nothing really great out right now, maybe something will turn out good later in the season. there are some fun & good past products but everything in previous years is for the most part way too expensive now.

That is actually a really nice Hoops break! I have seen some absolutely brutal autos come out of there.

Well, the most recent I can find is Panini Update 2010 and I don't see one listed for a future release anytime soon.

Welcome to the forum! I'd say the Hoops box wasn't that bad, Jimmer is a nice auto to get even though I think he is pathetic

Regarding basketball boxes, the only ones that came out this year are Prestige and Hoops. Prestige is a bit higher end, like $90-100 a box, w/ 3 autos and 1 jersey card. The double rookie class, and a lot of vets + retired players

Threads comes out within the next few weeks, which I think will be nice and better than all the release so far

If you want older products, try 10-11 Season Update ($45ish on BO) or one of the old UD products (Panini is the only one who currently makes NBA cards) like 05-06 SP Signature Edition or 09-10 SP Game Used Edition. Most of the 10-11 basketball products are still high in price due to "Linsanity" and the Jeremy Lin craze.
