Hello folks, welcome back to 2015-16 NBA Hoops and the Panini Halftime Report, sponsored by Panini, makers of some pretty cool sports cards. Here are the stats from the first half. We got 239 base cards out of 260 (92%), 23 rookies out of 40 (58%), 2 autos and 22 other inserts. Now the box had 24 packs and 12 cards each, which should be 288 cards, and the total from the inventory is 286, so be on the lookout for those other two cards. Hopefully they are in the box with the other cards from the series (and not with any of those filler cards for Panini’s wonderful online Dunk program). Anyhow, here’s a recap of some of the inserts from the first half.
We talked with Coach Vinny B, and asked him about opening that second box instead of selling it. He said it was a $26.95 box and he’s curious what inserts are in there (including the autos) and if he had to buy the remaining 21 base and 17 Rc’s I would probably be more than that. We asked him about trading and he said he wants to open that box first. Finally, we asked him if he was planning to continue the same pace of one pack a day in the second half. He said probably, if his team can maintain it’s patience it. It’s been very effective so far. However, he may speed up the pace by only picturing and writing about the new cards in his posts (and just listing the doubles).
So we’ll see what happens. It’s been a great game so far, enjoy the second half!
