Last year, many scoffed at the idea of a box of basketball cards running more than $1,000. Although price limited the market, Flawless was a hit with boxes soaring well past their original prices within days of release. 2013-14 Panini Flawless Basketball uses a similar formula of rarity, ultra high-end appeal, some rare signatures and impressive memorabilia to try to capture the same success for its sophomore release.

Back are the gem-encrusted base cards. Landing two per briefcase (yup, the box is housed in a briefcase), they have either a real diamond, emerald or ruby embedded in them. Gems vary by parallel.

Basketball is one of those sports where a handful of superstars and fan favorites don't seem to have a lot of autograph cards. 2013-14 Panini Flawless Basketball fixes that a little with on-card autographs from the likes of Dwyane Wade, Allen Iverson, Carmelo Anthony and Manu Ginonbli.

Autographs combine to fall six per box. Among the inserts are Top of the Class autographed memorabilia and Retired Numbers Autographs.

Memorabilia cards that don't have a signature are all of the jumbo prime variety. Two are in each box.

Every card in 2013-14 Panini Flawless Basketball is numbered to 25 or less.

Estimated Release Date: 9/17/14
Product Configuration: 1 pack per box, 10 cards per pack
Price Point: Ultra High-End Basketball Card
Target Audience: Hit Seekers, Autograph Collectors, Patch Collectors

  1. Just looked at Panini’s Daily Blog. It featured 3 “finished” boxes. Man, I was disappointed. There is a 1 of 1 Gary Payton Logoman/Auto. But, many, many cards numbered to 60 or more. Lots of single color relics. Don’t know that I saw the 2 jumbo patch cards referenced here for each box. Saw no Gem encrusted cards. If I got any of the 3 boxes featured, and if all the cards were as shown, I’d be majorly bummed.

  2. Bob » It was boxes of Immaculate, not Flawless.

  3. Yikes, I posted last comment on Immaculate. Never mind. lol…..Bonehead!
