The Drool Gallery: More On-Card Eye Candy Coming to National Treasures & Dominion

July 8, 2011

I just can’t get enough. I need more emails from Rosalinda Rios. I crave them. I hold my breath for them. I . . . can’t . . . go . . . on . . . without . . . them.

Especially this time of year, when Rios’ daily “Autos in House” notifications are filled with on-card breath-takers slated for inclusion in huge late-summer blockbusters 2010-11 National Treasures Basketball and 2010-11 Dominion Hockey.

Take today’s email for example. Butterflies started forming in my stomach well before the Microsoft Outlook “ding” signifying that her like-clockwork missive had arrived at 9:44 a.m. All flush-faced and jittery, I darted down to acquisitions without even reading what treasures were included among today’s arrivals.

Turns out it was these:

    I saw the J-Kidd before the disclosure. The rest is now just a blur. I’ll have to look again while sitting this time.

    Tracy do you notice the new river of salivation stretching across the US from Indiana to Texas? If so that would be me. Great work on the National Treasures basketball!Once again Panini pulls away from everyone else.

        I know that. Wasn’t talking just about basketball. Just saying quality wise Panini makes the best cards of all brands.

    What I would give for that Andersen ‘Notable Nicknames’!!! Really glad y’all decided to include him in that set this year.

    Wow. I am blown away. Good thing I was sitting down! The rookies look exquisite. One concern: the Favors card has him in Jazz uniform on the card, but the swatch is from the Nets. Are things like that going to be common for players traded later in the season?

    You blokes should be shot for puting sticker autos on logoman cards…. Utter disgrace

      That’s not a sticker autograph. That’s 100 percent on-card.

    DO WE HAVE A DATE WHEN THE NT WILL HIT THE MARKET. I PRE-ORDERED A CASE FROM MY CARD DEALER? BOUGHT 2 CASES LAST YEAR AND COULDN’T GET ENOUGH. THE ROOKIES AUTO PATCHES GOING VERTICAL WAS A GOOD IDEA.
