Card Gallery: 2014-15 Panini Paramount Buyback Autographs



By Stephen Laroche | Beckett Basketball Editor

Next month’s release of 2014-15 Panini Paramount Basketball marks the return of a brand that has not been seen in the hobby for over a decade.

Paramount’s basketball debut is already getting some buzz for its all-Dufex base set and many of its other features, but the to potential to pull autographed buyback cards from previous Panini releases adds even more value to packs. With some cards hand-numbered to as low as one-of-one, player collectors are sure to be chasing their favorites as well.

“The original BuyBack autographs in 2014-15 Paramount Basketball pay tribute to Panini America‘s brief but monumental history as the exclusive NBA trading card manufacturer,” said Panini America Hobby Marketing Manager Tracy Hackler. “Hard-signed autographs from the best players in the game on some iconic cards from Panini America’s proud past — that’s an undeniably cool combination that we’re certain collectors will appreciate.”

Please read on after the jump for exclusive images shared by Panini America.

    The buyback cards look nice, I just hope that they have some kind of marking (hologram, stamp, etc) to indicate that these are buyback autos. It would be nice if the marking indicated that they came out of 2014-15 Paramount as well. If there is no marking then they just opened the door to forgers to make some easy money (just grab an older Panini card and get a forger to sign it and mark it 1/1 and watch the money roll in).

    I’m not quite sure what to think. With the number of outstanding redemptions, why are there buyback autographs when Panini cannot get these players to sign cards that have already been issued? These don’t seem like the kind of cards that Panini actually ‘bought back’, but rather low-end cards that Panini has a surplus of and wants to get rid of. If they were high-end non-auto cards to begin with (case hits), it would be neat, but Kobe Anthology and Past & Present base cards..

    ..not a fan.

    What is going on at Panini? I’m still waiting on a Kyrie auto from two years ago and somehow he’s signed this product? It’s nothing but low end junk that’s being redistributed with an auto attached. I’m actually waiting on Panini to produce an original product. Didn’t Tracy say- “Hard-signed autographs from the best players in the game on some iconic cards”. Last I checked Bird Man and Ilyasova have NEVER been one of the best players in the game.
