The sticker packs themselves are larger than last year's NFL sticker packs. The wrappers share the same image used on front of the album.
The base sticker design has a horizontal orientation. You get both an action shot and a close up picture of the player.
Team leader stickers have a very nice rainbow holofoil look to them just like the team leaders did in the NFL sticker set.
As part of the NBA global section in the album there are stickers highlighting that player's nationality. Here you see Garnett hails from the USA.
I think my single favorite aspect of these stickers are these team logo stickers. There are actually 3 stickers here. It may be hard to tell from the pictures, but these are printed on a silk like jersey material. Think of the Topps Silk Collection cards, just not quite as silky smooth.
There are 2 large splash pages in the back of the album highlighting this year's rookies such as John Wall.
Logo sticker for the NBA Global section of the album.
One of the stickers for Kobe's Rivals section of the album. For some reason this sticker reminds me of those 90's cards where Jordan was holding the NBA trophy.
Packs retail for $1.00 and contain 8 stickers which in this economy is always a welcomed sight. Every store I visited looking for the NFL sticker packs I found that the display was just about always empty. While it was frustrating not always being able to purchase new sticker packs it was nice to know that they were selling well. I'm still holding out hope that Panini will some day return to the MLB as I could really get behind a baseball version of these stickers and sticker albums.
