PANINI SNEAK PEEK OF 2014-15 SELECT BASKETBALL DELIVERS KOBE BRYANT ANDREW WIGGINS JABARI PARKER STEPHEN CURRY AUTOGRAPHS PATCHES GOLD PRIZMS EMERALD PRIZMS AND1/1S




The Panini America SNEAK PEEK of 2014-15 Select Basketball was a huge success this weekend at Sports Cards Plus.  The idea of getting to see a Sports Cards Plus customer favorite product five days before the official release day generated tremendous interest throughout the San Antonio area.  Collectors anxiously awaited the FedEx Truck on Friday afternoon, wanting to be the first to see these beautiful cards.  It is an understatement to say they were not disappointed. 

2014-15 Select Basketball was everything our customers hoped for and more.  Every box (except one) deliver three hits or more and every box had a bounty of Prizm treasures. Beautifully colored prizms in every box.  Our cases had Gold Prizms #d/10, a few Emerald Prizms #d/5 and even a handful of 1/1s.  Since Beckett Grading was at Sports Cards Plus doing In-Store Grading, many of these beauties went straight from the pack into Beckett Raw Card Review holders.

We went through 6 cases in less than two days.  If we had 12 cases, I am sure they would have been gone before the official release date.  Sports Cards Plus customers asked, "When's the next Sneak Peek?"  Hopefully, real soon.  The following pictures tell the story better than I can.

2014 PANINI BLACK GOLD FOOTBALL DELIVERS SOME OF THE BEST LOOKING RC, PATCHES AND AUTOGRAPHS OF ODELL BECKHAM, TEDDY BRIDGEWATER, SAMMY WATKINS, DEREK CARR AND MORE!

  

2014 Panini Black Gold Football arrives Friday at Sports Cards Plus, a.k.a. The Super Hit Factory and football card collecting will never be the same.  I got to see these first hand at the 2015 Las Vegas Industry Summit and their beauty is beyond words.  Each $180 box delivers two base or parallel cards, two autographs, dual-autographs or autographed memorabilia cards, two memorabilia or additional autographed cards and two metal logo cards.  In Addition, some packs have an extra card that can be any of the above types.

2014 Panini Black Gold Football Checklist, Set Info, BoxesJust for comparison to the best football release to date, 2014 Immaculate Football has 6 Ultra-Premium Cards for a $375 retail price tag.  For $360 (the price of two boxes of Black Gold), Black Gold Football delivers 16 Ultra-Premium Cards with at least 4 Autographs, 4 Memorabilia, 4 Metal Logo Cards and 4 Shadowbox Base Cards or Parallels.  Can you say, "More for your money."



Based on the number of base cards produced, approximately 15162 boxes of Black Gold Football were produced compared to approximately 12500 boxes of Immaculate Football.  Given the price point ($180 per box), attractiveness, and collectability of 2014 Black Gold Football, these boxes should quickly disappear.  

2014PaniniBlackGold2


Sports Cards Plus will do a 2014 Black Gold Football Box Group Break Friday (6:00 O'clock) and Saturday (5:00 O'clock) for $25 per spot with every spot getting One Random Card from a Factory Sealed Box.  Call Charlie 210-524-2337 to pay for your spot.

Topps Supreme Football is back in 2014 with the usual array of amazing looking hits.  2014 Supreme includes a trifecta of autographed book cards: 1) Autographed QB Playbook cards have a quarterback's auto along with a hand-drawn diagram of their "go-to play."  2) Nickname Autograph Book Cards are done with a clack design and signed in silver ink and include the player's nickname.  3) Autographed Team Logo Patch Book Cards (1/1) come with a massive logo on one side of the book and an autograph on the other side.
