This is the last of my "finds" from last year's card show put on by After the Game Inc. in St. Louis. A 2016-2017 Hoops hobby box isn't technically a find since I went looking for these cards. This was the first new hobby box I've bought in 30 years? Who knows, a long time. I did purchase a box of the Star Wars Rogue One series 1 cards earlier this year so hopefully this doesn't become an expensive habit. I like these cards. Nothing too splashy but they get the job done. Good photos though I would have liked a few more of players playing defense or showcasing their ball handling skills. Those probably aren't that sexy on the fronts of cards so I get why we don't see as many of those shots.
Each box came with two autographs. I nabbed Seth Curry and DeAndre Bembry of my Hawks. Not spectacular pulls but I'm still happy. The other notable was the #116/149 Karl-Anthony Towns green parallel though I also grabbed an artist proof #/25 and two silver parallels #/99.
