2015-16 Panini Gold Standard Basketball Variations Details

Share:

Once again, if a player has called several cities home in their career, there’s a good chance they’re among the 2015-16 Panini Gold Standard Basketball variations. But it’s not only different teams that mean multiple cards this year. Standard photo variations have also been included.

The Team Variations have been a staple with Gold Standard for a few years. In the past with the team cards, players still had 299 total cards between all versions. Print runs were based on how long the player spent with a specific team. So if they spent a short time, not many cards were made. Teams they were on for a long time meant a higher print run. This same format hasn’t been confirmed for the 2015-16 Panini Gold Standard Basketball variations, but it appears to be following a similar route.

College and national teams are also in the variation mix for a few players.

Photo Variations are just that. Most are easy to spot based on different colored jerseys. That said, each player with a Photo Variation actually has two of them. Panini has not indicated how rare these variations are.

    At least there are a bunch of photo variations and not a bunch of the same photo with ten different color foil accents (ala Score, Prizm Prizms, Topps Chrome Refractors, et al.) It’s only a matter of time before Panini gives us ten photo variations with ten different foil variations and ten different auto/memorabilia configurations (with ten different photos and ten different foils.) Pretty soon we’re going to need a PhD in math to figure out how many cards of the players we collect are available…for one set.
