very nice! I always loved the Bullion Brand Tags and the Base Variations.
Now i just hope Sheed is in both of them,that would be sweet even if he already was in the Variations Set last year.
Looks like another good year for GS, i like the design on that NBA Champions autograph. Thanks Tracy!
Thanks for the preview!
Looking forward to the Quality Control Gallery for Timeless Treasures today as well! 🙂
Looks awesome! Will there be pieces of gold again?
i love GS. Any chance for a football return?
I just put the Tony parker card on the top of my wantlist, really nice design.
dwade champion card should be on card
That Blake metal card looks SLICK. I’ll be collecting those again… they were the best part of 12/13 Gold Standard!
Hmmm! Goodies! Early Christmas tease. Yes!!!
well this settles it, im gonna have to start picking up some bball lol
Is that Kevin Love what his actual card will look like? If so, that’s the same exact photo of Kevin Love you guys used for his Gold Standard base last year. Why use the same photo like that?
Seriously doubt it will be the same photo; those are just preview mock-ups.
The Ring Bearers is really cool. Like the design a lot there.
whens the final checklist coming out?
Going to post it later today with the QC Gallery.
Thanks …. I do a lot of group breaks and was hoping checklists can always come out a week before release since they are most likely already boxed and ready to go.
If this happens, I can post a checklist by team and be able to properly sell breaks by team…
