First Look: 2009-10 Playoff Contenders Basketball by Tracy Hackler


Panini America on Tuesday morning released preliminary details on 2009-10 Playoff Contenders Basketball, an autographed-Rookie Card-rich product due out exactly three months from today.

Playoff Contenders has long been one of the most sought after and influential football card products on the market and company officials look to be using a tried and true formula to ensure the product’s success as a rookie on the hardwood.

Every 24-pack box of Contenders will deliver four autographs, one Rookie of the Year Contender and one Legendary Contender insert card. In addition, the average 12-box case will deliver one autograph from either new spokesman Kobe Bryant, Blake Griffin, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar or Oscar Robertson.

Stay tuned to for additional details as they become available.

In the meantime, enjoy the first images from the product.
