  • 2014-15 Prestige Basketball To Be Target Exclusive Product

    2014-15 Panini Prestige Basketball Checklist, Set Info, Boxes

    This is beyond dumb in my opinion. You are going to sell these at Target, the place where there have been horror stories about pack searchers.

    The base cards look nice though. The configuration of the boxes and price point are odd. Looks like I may just get a few of the rookies of EBAY and not get the base set this year.

    2014-15 Panini Prestige Basketball doesn't take a traditional path as far as distribution goes. The only place it's being offered, outside of the secondary market, is at Target.

    The foil-heavy product comes in several different configurations. As the name suggests, Premium boxes are geared at the high-end crowd. It starts with the card stock, which is thicker than other pack and box types. These boxes come with four autographs and one memorabilia card. One of the signed cards is guaranteed to be Prestigious Premieres autograph that's got an on-card rookie signature.

    2014-15 Panini Prestige Basketball Premium boxes also have a rookie parallel numbered to 199 or less, nine additional rookies and five base parallels numbered to 199 or less.

    Next up are Plus boxes. These, along with all other packs outside of Premium boxes, are done on thinner foil-like card stock. Plus boxes come with a total of three hits that can be a mix of autographs and memorabilia cards. Each of the ten packs in the box comes with a rookie and either an insert or parallel.

    Blaster boxes have seven ten-card packs and deliver one hit and seven rookies.

    Hanger boxes have one pack including an exclusive rookie.

    Besides Prestigious Picks, the product has a handful of other autographs. Bonus Shots Autographs take on a similar name as the base set parallels. Like much of the product, there are parallel versions of the signed cards including some that are die-cut. Old School Autographs highlight retired players. Distinctive Ink is a mix of old and new highlighted by on-card signatures.

    Basic inserts in 2014-15 Panini Prestige Basketball include Pioneers, Prestigious Pros, Hardcourt Heroes and Franchise Favorites. There is also Connections that pair up a current star with a similarly skilled player from the past.

        I am actually warming up to this product. Base cards look nice. Target around my place doesnt have it yet, I have 3 in a 2 mile radius. If Blaster Boxes are $20, I will get 3-4 of them since I dont really care about the inserts that much. I should be able to complete the 160 card base set with 3-4 blasters plus get 4 hits.

          I went to Target and they had it today. They had 4 types.

          Packs were $3.99 each and were 10 cards per pack.

          Hanger packs were $9.99 each and had 10 cards per pack (which included an exclusive Rookie)

          Blaster Boxes were $29.99 each and had 7 packs with 10 cards per pack. You are guaranteed 1 RC per pack and 1 Auto or Relic per box.

          Regular Boxes were $64.99 and had 10 packs with 6 cards per pack. They never stated on the box how many hits you had per box.
