Product: 2013-14 Pinnacle Basketball
Break Date: March 1, 2014/Unknown
Hit Breakdown: one Artist's Proof per pack
Summary: So when Panini released the pre-release photos of Pinnacle Basketball, I was less than impressed. I just didn't think that the base set looked great.
But, I picked up a few packs, and was pleasantly surprised with what came out, so I picked up a few more. The inserts are really nice - especially the Clear Vision, with the translucent panels.
With one Artist's Proof per pack, if you pull the right card, you're coming out on top immediately. There also seem to be two inserts per pack, with a good mix of stars, rookies, and veterans.
The four packs we opened yielded a decent haul of inserts, the best being the Trey Burke Team 2020 and the Clear Vision cards.
