2014-15 Panini National Treasures Basketball sits towards the top of hobby's high-end. While Panini's Immaculate and Flawless brands give it company, it has the longest history of the three. The ultra-premium product delivers a total of eight autographs and memorabilia cards per box.
Rookie Patch Autographs return as one of the key components of the release. Numbered to 99 or less, these represent some of the key (and most expensive) rookie cards for the likes of Andrew Wiggins and the rest of the year's rookie class. Base versions have a vertical design to go with the over-sized swatch from a player-worn jersey. Among the variations are horizontal versions and logoman autographs.
Sticking with the rookie theme, 2014-15 Panini National Treasures Basketball also has college-themed cards for rookies, a first for the brand.
Not all autographed memorabilia cards in the product feature rookies. Treasured Tags comes with on-card signatures and recognizable pieces of jerseys like tags. Clutch Factor is another insert set with signed memorabilia.
NBA Champions spotlights current and retired players who have won the league championship. The autograph set comes hard-signed. Notable Nicknames come with inscribed signatures with the player's well-known alternate handle.
Additional on-card autographs can be found in Game Changers, Colossal Jersey Signatures, NBA Game Gear Signatures and Signature Moves.
Colossal, one of National Treasures' staples, returns with over-sized swatches.
