First look: 2010-11 Donruss Basketball by Chris Olds

By Chris Olds | Editor

Donruss is taking to the hardwood.

Panini America announced Tuesday its plans for the first Donruss basketball set in collecting history, a set complete with some design nods to the baseball cards from the 1980s but with the touches of modern-day Panini products.

And that means, you know, Rated Rookie cards of John Wall, Evan Turner and many others.

Set to arrive on Dec.  22, 2010-11 Donruss Basketball will include three autograph or memorabilia cards per box along with at least 20 die-cut parallel cards per box. The base set will consist of 295 cards and also will have a complete parallel set as well.

See more from the set after the jump.

We’ll have more on this one as it becomes available.

always loved the Rated Rookies, would like to see some 86 Fleer design rookies this year too

Pass. Not a fan of die cut. In most cases, die cut adds nothing to the design of the card. On the Rondo, the team name banner doesn’t look good to me. Also that’s a very large Donruss logo. I kind of like the old school look of the John Wall card. Very simple design, sweet old Rated Rookie logo. And those inserts look really too busy for my tastes.

Any idea on when the base set for 2010-11 Panini Basketball is to released? I haven’t seen any info or sell sheets for it yet. The 2009-10 Panini set was already out this time last year.

I’ve also been wondering about the 2010-11 Panini Basketball base product. Does anyone know anything? I sure hope Panini comes out with some set featuring extensive player coverage for both the basketball enthusiast and set collector like myself. I’d even be open to a Score Basketball product – especially if the design was like the year that featured the black and white Bo Jackson card.
