While there are many NBA products that can lay claim to the high-end designation, 2015-16 Panini Flawless Basketball sits at the very peak of this movement. Along with a strong selection of premium designs and luxurious elements comes a price tag that is closer to the cost of a vacation than a single box of cards. Nevertheless, Flawless offers some of the top cards of the year, including the most valuable rookie cards for 2015-16.
Besides the obvious selection of on-card autographs and impressive relics, a few of the 2015-16 Panini Flawless Basketball options stand out to collectors. Of course, anything for names like Karl-Anthony Towns, Kristaps Porzingis or Devin Booker has added importance as their final rookie cards. Another name worth pointing out is Patrick Ewing, who signed for Flawless after a long autograph void in his cardboard career.
Unique patches and other relics also receive considerable attention in 2015-16 Panini Flawless Basketball. This is especially true for the very limited Logoman inserts, Flip Saunders Tribute Patches and Championship Tags.
The other side to all this is the borderline-insane price for a box of ten cards. At around $1,800 a box for a '15-16 product that released in the same month that the preseason started for the 2016-17 season, the gamble might just be too much. Also, the overall checklist does not seem as "high-end" as the pricing. Individual card prices can get out of hand quickly, but at least collectors know what they are getting.
The list below automatically compiles the most-watched 2015-16 Panini Flawless Basketball auction listings on eBay. All you have to do is check back to keep an eye on the biggest hits for the team or player that you collect. It is also a great place to just window shop for some very nice (and very expensive) cards.
