Default NBA’s Sharpest Shooters Shine in 2011-12 Past & Present Basketball’s “Raining 3s”

NBA’s Sharpest Shooters Shine in 2011-12 Past & Present Basketball’s “Raining 3s”

April 29, 2012 at 12:43 PM



Yesterday, in honor of the 2012 NBA Playoffs tipping off, we brought you an exclusive sneak peek of the scorching Fireworks insert coming in 2011-12 Past & Present Basketball. Today, we add some much-needed rain to the preview parade with a look at Past & Present’s Raining 3s insert.

Like Fireworks, Raining 3s places a premium on wow-factor printing technology, in this case a high-gloss, spot-UV treatment that brings tangible dimensions to every drop of water on every card.It’s something that has to be felt to be truly appreciated — not that we won’t try to wet, er, whet, your appetite with the following 20-card tease.


NBA superstars from today and yesterday come together as you’ve never seen them in this tribute to the game’s greatest long-range shooters.

In the coming days, we’ll deliver more previews of 2011-12 Past & Present Basketball, including an advance look at some of the set’s short-printed base-card variations.

Enjoy.

First fire and now water? Will it be raised/bumpy so you can feel the water?

Cool concept, the designs actually look nice. They should put guys like Dennis Scott/George McCloud/Dell Curry if they are talking 3 pointers (but I could see why they wouldn't).

They look like the really bad 90's designs.

The "Past and Present" logo is an eyesore.

I agree, they should have gone with a logo like they did with Gold Standard base cards.

That too, this does not look like it will be a successful release.
