First and foremost, I'd like to thank our sponsors at Panini for providing us with this box.
1 pack per box
10 cards per pack
Current Retail Price (online): $200.00 - $224.99
- Look for draft class redemption cards for the 2011-12 and 2012-13 classes!
- Look for the return of Solid Gold cards and a revamped design for Gold Rush, where each card has a disc of gold embedded in it.
- Greatest Graphs features member of the 50 Greatest Players!
A clean and contemporary design based on the gold theme of the set.
Newly revamped to showcase the gold disc!
14K MEMORABILIA PRIME
Players who have eclipsed the career 14,000 point scoring mark... even better keep an eye out for the 24K version.
The Solid Gold 1/1 is back again this year!
BULLION BRAND LOGOS
Look for huge swatches of prime jersey tags on this one!
A checklist built from the NBA's 50 Greatest Players
