The Panini America Quality Control Gallery: 2014-15 Luxe Basketball (36 Must-See Pics)

August 26, 2015

Panini America 2014-15 Luxe Basketball QC2

As the late August blaze continues its sweltering run through North Texas, it’s fitting that Panini America officials are ending the summer on a similar hot streak when it comes to the final stages of the 2014-15 NBA collecting portfolio. Even as last week’s release of 2014-15 National Treasures Basketball continues its torrid ways on the secondary market, company officials and collectors also are readying more high-end heat to hit the market.

The international-only 2014-15 Gala Basketball should start arriving in foreign destinations in the coming days, followed closely by next Wednesday’s North American release of 2014-15 Luxe Basketball. To date, previews of 2014-15 Luxe Basketball have been relatively light, with the exception of the preliminary product information and an early look at some of the first autograph returns. Today, we’re going to take a look at just some of the results from the recently completed Quality Control process.

Each four-card box of 2014-15 Luxe Basketball will deliver three on-card autographs and one jumbo-prime memorabilia card; the product also features the first metal-bordered cards in Panini America’s history (Luxe Autographs). Every card produced for Luxe will be numbered to 99 or less and will include either an on-card autograph, a jumbo piece of memorabilia or both.

Check out the Quality Control Gallery below to gain a greater understanding of the product and stay tuned to The Knight’s Lance for continued coverage of 2014-15 Luxe Basketball.

    I sincerely hope there aren’t Panini Points in this product.

    I really like the metallic framed autographs, a nice touch to the dark background and hopefully reduces chipping as they come out of the pack. Thanks Tracy!

    All the cards with Silver ink are streaked…the rest of the gallery is relatively unimpressive. A lot of players that will be $15-20 in the QC gallery. I can almost guarantee Panini Points will be in the packs and where are the pics of Logo Patches (hornets face, Wolves head etc) I didn’t see any logoman cards and for $1300 a case do you make your money back if you don’t pull a Wiggins RPA? I’ll stick to Nat’l Treasures and leave this on the shelf. Now that I think of it…where is the pic of the Wiggins RPA?? or will that be for sale on the website via Panini Points??
