2014-15 Panini Gold Standard Basketball Variations Guide

2014-15 Panini Gold Standard Basketball Variations Guide

For a release with a 200-card base set, 2014-15 Panini Gold Standard Basketball has a lot of variations. In past years, variations showing nomadic players on different teams were a running theme. This set is no different. However, it also adds some more basic photo variations to the mix as well. Factor in a short print scenario and you've got a bigger challenge for an already challenging set.

Although the checklist released by Panini mentions just one Photo Variation for a group of 15 players, there are more than that. Early on, several of these players have a base card as well as two variations. Panini hasn't confirmed if this is the case for all or some, but they're definitely out there. For example, Kobe Bryant has cards with him in yellow, purple and black jerseys. At this point, it's also unknown if some are short prints and to what extent.

The number of Team Variations varies from player to player. In the case of Chris Webber, he has a total of seven cards. According to Panini, players with Team Variations still have 285 total cards, no matter how many teams they're shown with. To further complicate things, rarity of these cards is tied to how long they spent with the team. Some of the Team Variations have as few as ten copies each.

You can see both the 2014-15 Panini Gold Standard Basketball Photo Variations and Team Variations by using the tabs below. For the Team Variations, we've also included how long each player spent with specific teams to give you an idea of which ones are likely the toughest to find.
