2015-16 PARAMOUNT

After nearly a three years hiatus from the hobby as I got married, left my previous career & moved to live abroad, I began to purchase cards again in April 2015. After some research of recent releases, I decided that the 2014-15 Paramount Penmanship on-auto set would be a good place to start adding new cards to my collection. Not only did it have a clean design featured on-card autographs and a nice varied selection of active and retired players; but prices were unlikely to break my budget.

The first two cards I picked up were of the standard versions Cazzie Russell & Iman Shumpert. This was quickly followed by the Blue (numbered to 25) Karl Malone & Gold (numbered to 10) of Magic Johnson. I soon realised, that the cost of the latter were going to be prohibitive, so I concentrated my efforts on putting together a standard set of cards.

As things stand, I have 39 of the 56 available cards from the [non-RC] set.
