Base cards are becoming less and less of a find in high-end brands but Panini America has helped keep them on the minds of basketball collectors this year with photo variations in 2015-16 Panini Gold Standard.
And the company has disclosed which variations are the toughest pulls from the high-end product.
Panini America‘s newest edition of one of its more-unique brands arrived this week with the latest crop of hits, big-name rookies, NBA veterans and legends.
It’s 2015-16 Panini Gold Standard basketball cards — just the ninth NBA release of the year for the company — and it’s the home of three hits per box.
Eight new products are scheduled to arrive this week with a mix of hockey and basketball leading the way with two brands apiece for the sports.
The second series of Upper Deck hockey cards arrives with Jack Eichel the Young Guns Rookie Card to chase, while Leaf goes high-end with 2015 Leaf Ultimate, a brand loaded with nothing but hits. There are 50 Young Guns in Series 2 and they are found one in every four packs, while memorabilia cards are found one per box in both hobby and retail boxes.
