Q&A WITH PANINI AMERICA NBA BRAND MANAGER DAVID PORTERWhat is the significance of the unique name you selected for this product?We realize that by naming this product "Black Box" we're setting collector expectations really high as that name carries the biggest of big-ticket connotations with collectors. But based on the incredible content that we've injected into Black Box, I'm certain this is a product that will not just meet those expectations, but surpass them. From five-autograph Dynasty cards to the first ever Panini America basketball booklet cards to the hoops introduction of the popular Crusade insert, this is a truly special debut. We spent a great deal of time developing Black Box and we're really excited about it.
This is clearly a content-driven product. What are some of the things you have in store for collectors?We understand that the content HAS to be there - and it will be. There is game-worn memorabilia in this set from George Mikan and Wilt Chamberlain. There are Triple Autograph cards from the original Dream Team. There's a Thunderstruck autographed insert in which every card is signed on-card. Dr. J will have autographs and memorabilia in Black Box. Crusade will include memorabilia and autographed versions. But of all the great content in here, I'm most excited about the Booklet cards and the designs. They're truly spectacular. This is definitely high-end and it absolutely lives up to the Black Box name.
