Show #53 Topps Series 2 + Absolute Memorabilia Basketball
This week has us talking about two nice sets that are out this month. One is a familiar staple that collectors expect every season, the other is a ‘new’ basketball set that has some good hits for a Panini product.
This set is similar to Topps Series 1 except you will find a few new surprises in this set. The short print base cards (remember PITF and the legends that were SP in series 1) are now announced – and have a stated print run of 3,000. The Million Card Give-A-Way now will include original T-206 cards that collectors can hunt down online. Look for this set to be out on Thursday May 27, 2010.
Another football carry-over for Panini/Donruss – but this is a good one to bring over from the gridiron side. Tools of the Trade and RPM Rookie Cards have been popular with collectors and people seem to enjoy them for basketball. The only thing about this set was the timing … only a week after Timeless Treasures Basketball – which was another expensive product from Panini. It might sell better if you spread out releases out more.
