Review: Panini NBA Hoops 2013-2014 Trading Cards
The front of the cards are appealing visually to me. The border is white. At the bottom is the NBA Hoops logo in silver against a background color of the player's team. The players name is found at the top on a background color which is associated with the player's team. The team logo is in the upper right on a parquet floor background. The photos themselves take up the rest of the space. No issues with pictures with the majority being action shots. It seems like the majority are pictures of the players at the rim. Not a big issue but seems different. Some rookies were pictured playing in the summer league or in posed shots. My only beef would be the lack of the player's position. Again a nice front which I can't find much fault with.
I struggle on this one as the back really turns me off. At first I was ok but I just get more irritated the more I try to read anything on the back. Overall I'll say pick these up with the caveat that the back might be frustrating. I may put more importance on the back than most. The fronts are visually appealing and I think most would enjoy as well. The price is also a win and I'm sure they are available at most retailers.
