2014-15 Panini Flawless Basketball Details

Share:

Panini America revolutionized the game when it comes to high-end trading cards with its first Flawless release back in 2012-13 and it is back once again this season with even more jaw-dropping cards and some new concepts.

With presentation meaning so much, there is much pomp and circumstance whenever a pack of 2014-15 Panini Flawless  is opened since it comes in the form of a locked briefcase and the cards themselves are nestled perfectly inside. With a lofty retail price that is justified by its limited nature, Panini has provided some early details regarding Flawless and it is truly meant for advanced collectors – or those with deep pockets.

2014-15 Panini Flawless Basketball Base Set

Anthony
Possibly the most impressive base card set on the market, each Flawless card is a treasure all in itself as each card contains a jewel and will be numbered to 20 copies or less. As usual, the design is clean and it will be made up of today’s hottest stars, yesterday’s legends and the stars of the future.

Flawless has also added a new component to the base set in the form of a 30-card USA Basketball Alumni subset. Loaded up with three jewels that comes in red, white, and blue (ruby, diamond, and sapphire) to provide maximum visual impact.

Autographs
Mirotic

With a whopping six autographs in each box of 2014-15 Panini Flawless, collectors can anticipate a broad selection of sets to discover. The company revealed only a handful of details in their promotional literature, but the USA Basketball-themed Red White & Blue Triple Autos are sure to generate some excitement.

The last opportunity of the season to get hard-signed autographs from the past year’s heavily-hyped freshman class presents itself with Rookie Autographs and there will also be plenty of prime jumbo patch pieces to go along with ink in Momentous Autographed Memorabilia.

Memorabilia Cards

Details regarding the memorabilia cards for Flawless are limited at this point, but this product marks the debut of Dual Diamond Memorabilia, which has game-worn patch pieces or even a Logoman swatch from a dynamic duo.

    Article should read: Panini has revolutionized the baseball card industry by producing one HIGH-END product after another, while continuing to hold their monopoly on the basketball trading card industry, and limiting the average collector by producing very FEW low end products!
    I continue to hope that another card company can break this- in my opinion-horrible pattern that Panini operates!!!

    If they charge this much for these cards and call them flawless, shouldn’t the cards represent the brand name and BE FLAWLESS? Quality control with edges and corners have been terrible in the past on these cards. Why anyone buys these is beyond me.

    These cards look amazing. Pictures do not do them justice.

    Panini produces something for everyone which includes low-end product. Here is a list of 2014-15 Panini Basketball Products with prices from ONE OF THE BIG INTERNET RETAILERS:

    LOW-END – Donruss $49, Hoops $50, Totally Certified $56, Court Kings $60 and Prizm $60.

    MID – Gold Standard $140, Prestige Premium $141, Paramount $158, Prizm Jumbos $158, Select $175, and Preferred $175.

    HIGH-END – LUXE $280, Spectra $290, Gala $340, National Treasures $585, Immaculate $585, Flawless ??? $1500 ???

    Why doesn’t Panini produce more low end products? I carry all of the above products. From my perspective as a card shop owner, the demand just isn’t there. If more people would spend more money on low-end product, Panini will meet the demand.

    Pathetic that Panini is still releasing 2014/15 NBA product. It’s time to turn the page on last season.

    Charlie- Donruss for $49.00? Wow! I couldn’t find a box for less than $74.00 on line. Court Kings? Yeah, if you like one dozen cards for $60.00- same few number with Totally Certified. Prizm- one buck per card.
    The only time they drop below 100 bucks- not counting Hoops, is when they offer a marginal amount of cards.
    Time for Panini to have competition in this market!!

    are they going to do a football release this year? Last year was one of my all-time favorites!
