2013-2014 Flawless Basketball Review

I’ve been a collector of basketball cards for many years. Over the years I’ve been able to collect cards of some of the NBA’s top players. I target rookie cards mainly of the most hyped players. I also collect rookies of those players that are considered diamonds in the rough. From time to time I purchase cards hoping for a special find. On this particular day I had an urge to purchase what I consider to be premium basketball cards. The cards are called Flawless. The cards are sold at my local hobby store. The price for the cards was over $1,700. I had some extra money thanks to a project that I recently completed. I went to the store and purchased one box. I decided to open the box at home. The store had a special promotion going on so they gave me my choice of 2014 NFL autographed rookie cards. I chose the Kelvin Benjamin card since he is doing well so. I left the store with a smile hoping that I struck pay dirt with my purchase. When I arrived home I sat down and opened the box. The cards come in a black briefcase. According to the store owner, each briefcase contains 10 cards. I would receive 6 Autograph cards, 2 Jumbo Prime Memorabilia Cards and 2 Diamond, Emerald or Ruby Cards. I opened the briefcase and pulled out the ten cards. I cards look really nice, but was it worth $1,700? Below are the cards that I pulled out of the briefcase

  • Dwayne Wade Dual patch auto out of 5 cards
  • Trey Burke Sapphire base RC numbered 3 of 10 cards. This happened to be his jersey number.
  • Goran Dragic diamond base card out of 10 cards
  • Anthony Davis auto out of 25 cards
  • Jason Kidd auto out of 20 cards
  • Goran Dragic auto out of 15 cards. This is my second Dragic card in the box.
  • Zydrunas Ilgauskas auto out of 10 cards
  • Ricky Rubio Jumbo Patch out of 10 cards
  • Fred Brown Jumbo Patch auto out of 25 cards
  • Cody Zeller Jumbo Patch numbered 15/15

The cards are low numbered meaning they are rare giving them a better chance to grow in value long term. I got one rookie card in Trey Burke who could be solid player for years to come. I like the autographs that I pulled. I especially liked the Anthony Davis, Dwayne Wade Jason Kidd auto. The Wade auto was numbered to just 5 putting a real smile on my face. Overall I was pleased with my find. I would give the product a B grade. I didn’t pull a card of one of the premium stars like LeBron or Durant, but I did pull good cards overall and I received the Kelvin Benjamin autographed rookie card as a bonus. I won’t purchase another box of the 2013-2014 edition of Flawless Basketball. I do plan to save up some money so that I can purchase the 2014-2015 edition of Flawless Basketball next year when it will feature cards from the hyped 2014 NBA rookie class.
