2014-2015 NBA Threads Basketball Cards Gravity Pack 2

I am currently on a quest to get as many basketball rookie cards as possible. The hype surrounding the 2014 NBA rookie class is among the largest that I’ve ever seen. I purchased a gravity pack of basketball cards called Threads produced by Panini America. These cards are only available for purchase at Target stores. The Threads cards come in three variations and I previously purchased another Gravity pack of the 2014-2015 Threads cards. I received some good cards, but no rookie cards. I decided to try my luck again so I decided to purchase another gravity pack. I drove down to my local Target store again and saw that they still had several blaster boxes of the 2014-2015 Threads Basketball cards and also several gravity packs in stock. I purchased one more gravity pack and again drove home to open my pack of cards. The cards came in the same multi colored pack with a picture of John Wall and the Panini logo on it. The pack contained 10 cards. According to the Panini website a special Micro-etched rookie card is inserted in some of these packs so I held out hope that I would get one of these special cards in the pack this time. It took me only seconds to open the pack and I enjoyed the entire experience. Below are the contents of my second 2014-2015 Threads Basketball gravity pack:

  • Card #1 – Nerlens Noel
  • Card #2 – Bernard King
  • Card #3 – Arron Afflalo
  • Card #4 – Andre Drummond
  • Card #5 – Amar’e Stoudemire
  • Card #6 – Michael Kidd-Gilchrist
  • Card #7 – Marcus Morris
  • Card #8 – Luis Scola
  • Card #9 – Blake Griffin – Inside Presence Insert
  • Card #10 – Tyler Ennis - Micro-etched rookie card

Overall I would rate this basketball card purchase from Target as ok. I did receive one of the Micro-etched rookie cards. The rookie was Tyler Ennis who currently plays for the Milwaukee Bucks. I also received a Blake Griffin Insert card and cards of solid players including Nerlens Noel and Andre Drummond, both of whom have bright NBA futures. The other cards I received are cards of solid players and a legend who was a good player. The pack was reasonably priced and I got a rookie card. Considering the cost of the pack I probably broke even with this purchase again. I probably won’t purchase another pack of cards. I probably will instead purchase one of the other box variations of Threads in the future. I still recommend to those collectors who want the opportunity to get some nice looking cards that include members of the 2014 NBA rookie class to give Threads Basketball cards a try.
