2014-15 Panini Paramount Basketball is a brand new hoops release that may or may not have borrowed its name from an old Pacific brand from the late 90’s. What we do know is that Panini has brought the classic Dufex foil technology with this set that gives the cards a sharp sunburst effect. Each nine-card box of Panini Paramount comes with three autograph cards, one memorabilia cards and five limited edition Dufex cards.

The 50 players in the base set also have a short printed variation that are numbered to 25. Short prints fall one per case.
