It’s nod to the past and the big screen, but one card in the forthcoming Panini NBA Player of the Day set might stand out to some collectors as different.
It’s a Paul George card in the Indiana Pacers’ “Hickory Pacers” uniforms worn a few times this season. Why?

Have the Hickory uniforms hit cardboard previously this season? Buzz hasn’t seen every card but it’s possible that this is the first. (Tweet Buzz or leave a comment if you have seen others.)
