Random Wax: 2019-2020 Hoops Basketball with Autograph

2019-2020 Hoops Basketball: Over the years Hoops packs have done me well with autographs though other than a Jayson Tatum auto I don't think many have really turned out to be much.  This one is no different with an auto of Chuma Okeke (shown later in the post) who isn't in the NBA right now.  Still this was a really good pack which starts with this Teal Explosion Anthony Davis.  I also pulled his base card.  And I pulled my first Luka Doncic card of the year.  About time. 
These guys keep the star power going.  The Greek Freak has upped his 3 point game this year after an MVP season last year.  He won't be mistaken for Steph Curry anytime soon but the fact he is making a point to make it that much harder to defend him is scary for the rest of the league.
Rookies are always a big part of the Hoops sets.  I like the design of the Class of 2019 inserts.
I'll be curious if D'Angelo Russell and Kevin Love are traded.  Russell seems a likely candidate as Golden State has nothing to play for with all their injuries and when Curry and Thompson are both healthy next year court time will be hard to come by.  Everyone talks about Love moving but I'm not sure I take on his max contract.  His injury history and age make that a tough sell for me.

The aforementioned autograph.

This Doncic Lights Camera Action is a Holo parallel.  Finally pulled one of his cards and a parallel at that.  Dude is the real deal.  This was a great pack and tons of fun.  There will be more.

  1. Hoops seems like a very solid set this year.

    1. I agree. I've been happy with what I've seen so far in their design and inserts.

  2. Don't know who Chuma Okeke is... but he's got a cool name. Congratulations on pulling an autograph!

    1. I haven't found anyone who knows who he is. But an auto is an auto and I'll take it. Thanks.

  3. Dang, this is the second NBA hoops rack pack that I’ve seen today on the blogosphere, and both had autos! Okeke went to Auburn and was a first rounder. He’s young and raw but has a good ceiling. Great pack!

    1. Hoops has been good to me. This was a fun pack for sure.
