One of the most sought-after cards in 2015-16 Panini Immaculate Collection has been found — in a case of 2015-16 Panini Flawless.
Last month, a collector discovered the Kristaps Porzingis Flawless logoman 1/1 in a box of Immaculate and at that time Panini America said it had mistakenly swapped the cards and that the Immaculate 1/1 would be placed into Flawless, the company’s most-premium NBA product.
The hunt for that notable card ended this weekend as it was found by a BlowoutCards.com customer, Anthony from New York, inside a Flawless briefcase.
Here’s Panini’s previous statement as previously seen here on The Buzz:
“Panini America officials on Thursday confirmed what one collector in Taipei surprisingly discovered firsthand earlier this week: The recent release of 2015-16 Immaculate basketball unintentionally included the Kristaps Porzingis 1/1 logoman autograph produced for 2015-16 Flawless basketball, which begins packing out Friday.
“After thoroughly researching the situation, company officials discovered that the Porzingis logoman autographs for both products were miscataloged and placed into the wrong packout queue. The Flawless logoman was included in Immaculate; the Immaculate logoman will be packed out in Flawless.”
The Knicks rookie finished second in the NBA’s Rookie of the Year voting behind the Minnesota Timberwolves’ Karl-Anthony Towns, whose Flawless 1/1 rookie patch auto was pulled on BlowoutTV this past week.
