Definition of Silhouette for those who decided to click the thread.

Panini Preferred Silhouettes is one thing that Panini does well in my opinion. I thought I would create a thread just for these beauties. Comments are welcomed and appreciated.

2011-12 Panini Preferred Silhouette #249 #ed to 49

2011-12 Panini Preferred Silhouette Prime #249 #ed to 25

2012-13 Panini Preferred Silhouette #246 #ed to 49

2012-13 Panini Preferred Silhouette Prime #246 #ed to 3.
....
...
..
What no pic? Unfortunately these are a little TOO pricey for Kukocitb money.

2016-17 Panini Preferred Silhouette #67 #ed to 45

2016-17 Panini Preferred Silhouette Prime #67 #ed to 10

Thanks again for tuning in! Again comments are appreciated but not required.

Thanks Jin! I thought these deserved a thread of their own. I am sure there are some people who have not checked out my rolling Kukoc thread so I wanted to make sure everyone saw these.

My reaction when I am casually looking at forum threads and I see Kukocitb posting a new one knowing it is going to be Toni-rific...


more goodness man!

Edited to add...I also usually have to go to more adult oriented websites to see the title thread though!

I used to collect silhouettes and had a bunch of 11-12 and most of the Kukoc primes are pipping so that’s a beast there. Awesome design absolutely love the primes.

thanks! I guess I didn't realize most were pipping. Glad I got a good one. Hoping they make a Hawks and Bucks one in the future.

I thought about picking up other silos but I do not need anything else to collect LOL! I bet they were not cheap to collect.

I wish I would have picked up some of the prime booklets when I could have.

This is my "patch" silhouette... I would kill for some pipping (which I assume is what I've been calling trim)

The first couple years of Preferred were a solid release, it really went downhill fast.

At first I was unsure on the newest release but it has grown on me. Thanks for the comment.

I like the 2015-16 series a lot because it has a full body shot of the player and the image is in the middle which to me is more of a silhouette.

However, I got my hands full collecting other sets, so I just got two examples for this series - Magic and Bird.

Here they are side by side.

AWESOME! Thanks for sharing! Kukoc is not in that year but those are NICE!

2015-16 looked good and the patch versions were nasty, but 2016-17 was just awful IMO.

that prime Bulls one is a beaut. A prime Mitch silo just got listed a few weeks ago but for a laughably high price, like $450+. Ugh. Glad you got yours kukocitb.

Man oh man. I have been grabbing the Artis Gilmore versions my self, and Bernard Kings. Man, the patch versions are hella nasty. I agree, this series is one of the best Panini does and does well. Toni Tony Toney has done it again!
