The juggernaut is coming. Flawless Basketball, one of the most extravagant brands in the history of sports card collecting, is preparing to close out the 2015-16 NBA collecting season with a thunderous finale by delivering its trademark brand of high-end hoops hysteria.

Every 10-card briefcase of 2015-16 Flawless Basketball will include seven autograph cards, two encased jewel cards and one Jumbo Patch memorabilia card. Every card produced for 2015-16 Flawless Basketball will be numbered to 25 or less. As expected, the highlights of the product are many and include . . .
