Wow, I was watching MMA all night and I didn’t realize the Knicks finally won a game.
This is the first pack of anything Panini that I opened but I expect I’ll be buying a lot more Panini products in the future. According to the site, this product should have been released early October but I can’t find it in most of the places where I buy my cards (Target and the two hobby stores near me). The K-mart near where I work just got the rack packs (Panini spells it Rak Pak) for sale. I really don’t know too much about 2009 Panini Prestige but I’m willing to give it a shot.

This product definitely feels like something Donruss would do and it doesn’t really excite me. I don’t know if Prestige is a low tier (base) or mid tier product but I much rather spend $5 and get 36 cards rather than just 16. Still I got a nice collection of stars, legends and rookies. Of all the rookies this year I have been getting Hasheem Thabeet the most. I hope this is a good thing. But I also believe I also got my first Brandon Jennings rookie card. Jennings has looked great so far and it is looking like the Knicks made a mistake passing him for Jordan Hill but it is far too early to say that for sure.
Anyways, the Card of the Game (CotG) is easily David Lee. Lee seems to be always looking to improve and he would be a good complement to any star player the Knicks sign in 2010. But it is unclear whether he has a future with the Knicks after this year and this is unfortunate.
