2015-16 Panini Clear Vision Basketball Towns

By Stephen Laroche | Beckett Basketball Editor

After making its debut in the football market last year, Panini America has adapted one of its newest concepts and has adapted for a new market with 2015-16 Panini Clear Vision Basketball.

With a strong focus on rookie cards along with attractive autograph card designs printed on acetate stock, each five-card pack includes at least one hit.


Base Set

The all-acetate base set is a compelling aspect of 2015-16 Panini Clear Vision Basketball and in addition to plenty of established NBA stars, there are rookie cards that fall twice per box. Complete at 141 cards, there will be additional Rookie and Rookie Revision Variations (1:28) which feature different photos.

Collectors can also hunt for several different parallels, which are seeded twice in each box. Parallels come in six levels with numbering ranging from 149 copies down to one-of-one Copper.



Clear Vision Signatures give 2015-16 Panini Clear Vision Basketball a strong assortment of ink from today’s biggest names as 20 NBA veterans are part of the set. The checklist includes prominent names such as Kobe Bryant, Anthony Davis, Kevin Durant, Blake Griffin, Kyrie Irving, and Dirk Nowitzki. On top of that, there are also cards for the first 10 picks from the 2015 NBA Draft and that group includes future stars like Karl-Anthony Towns, D’Angelo Russell, Jahlil Okafor, and Kristaps Porzingis. All of these cards will have a gold version numbered to 25 as well.

Visionary Signatures looks at 20 of the game’s greatest legends and Panini even created a short printed parallel which includes an inscription.
