If you'll be traveling from July 22 to July 25, a 4 day Swiss Travel Pass makes sense. The validity period is measured in dates, but the night following the last validity day is still included. So a pass starting at July 22 will be valid as long as 5 am on July 26. It's explained here.
Since you'll be landing at Basel in the evening, I recommend you buy your pass online in advance, preventing you from having to spend time on pass purchase at the airport after landing. Desks may even be closed by the time you land, depending on the exact time of arrival. Retailers for online purchases are listed here. Don't wait too long, as both regular paper tickets as well as online print at home passes take a couple of days to process/ship. You could look into either http://www.acprail.com /rail-passes/swiss-pass (paper tickets, free shipping within 1-2 business days) or http://www.swissrailwa ys.com/en (print at home passes that will be e-mailed within 3 business days).
