Personally, Preferred is my favorite product from Panini and in my humble opinion pulling a Rookie Silhouettes (Prime) should command higher price compared to NT and others. However, might be because of the initial reputation of NT when Panini took over as the sole authorized manufacturer of NBA trading cards, NT RPAs are considered as the holy grail when it comes to rookie cards.
Anyway here are the highlights of the upcoming 2015-16 Panini Preferred Basketball.
- The return of the iconic Silhouettes and Rookie Silhouettes showcasing on-card autographs and jumbo memorabilia pieces. Base versions are limited to 99 copies or less and Prime versions are limited to 25 copies or less.

Look for rare 1/1 versions of the 2015 NBA Finals insert featuring the NBA Finals logo from jersey fronts; Stat Line 1/1s feature jersey tags.
