’10/’11 Timeless Treasures Basketball Box Break & Review

Design: Photobucket

Colors are bright, and the card stock is thick.  The base cards would be great to use for in-person autographs.  I’m glad Panini decided to use white leather for their Rookie Recruits Signatures.  It would seem natural to use orange basketball material, but signatures just don’t show that well on those.

Price: Photobucket

One tin will cost about $90.00.  This product doesn’t quite have the best bang-for-the-buck, but its all a gamble.

Hit Quality: Photobucket

Each tin will yield (3) autographs or memorabilia cards.  I pulled the following:

  • Eric Bledsoe Rookie Recruits Signatures Redemption #’ed/299
  • Greivis Vasquez NBA Apprentice Jersey/Auto #’ed/50
  • Ekpe Udoh / Gordon Hayward NBA Apprentice Jersey #’ed/99

A lot of collectors have been complaining about the number of redemptions being pulled from recently released Panini products.  Yesterday Panini posted this message on their official blog about redemptions.  Personally, I don’t think you should include a player within a product if they haven’t returned their signatures.

Overall: Photobucket

Overall, I give 2010-2011 Timeless Treasures 3.5 basketballs out of 5 (1=poor & 5=perfect).  Its a quick thrill for any basketball fan.

  1. That post by Panini seemed to be all lip service and nothing else. I’ll believe the change once I see it. Meanwhile, I’ve got two redemption cards that I’m waiting on for a couple of months now already.
