I will probably get started next week on at least one of those repacks that showed up last week, but first I have to get through this:
As usual, I'll divide these up into 4 piles of about the same height, and list everything.
2015 Hoops - Bojan Bogdanovich - And we're off.
1996 Hoops - Chris Morris
1993 Fleer - Dale Davis
1993 Hoops - Dennis Scott
1992 Hoops - Stacey Augmon - The first of several drawn cards in this - this was the only one that was not a checklist.
1993 Stad. Club - Victor Alexander
1996 Hoops - Damon Stoudamire - The first Raptors card comes early on.
1992 Stad. Club - Oliver Miller
2005 Topps 1952 Style - Alan Henderson - And the first hit of the cube. The card itself is a bright green swatch, even though this looks like it has been laundered several dozen times.
1996 Topps - Loy Vaught
1991 UD - Dennis Scott
1992 Stad. Club - Alex Strivins - One of the fun things about Topps' return to the basketball card market was that their Stadium Club 'rookie on the back' was mostly the flagship release. But this is one of the self-referential ones. This card itself was the only card Strivins would see in his career.
1993 Fleer - Felton Spencer
1999 Force - Nazr Mohammed - Maybe not the first shiny card, but the first foil one for sure.
1991 Fleer - Orlando Woolridge
1995 Skybox - BJ Armstrong
2004 Hot Prospects - Mickael Pietrus - The pride of Guadeloupe!
1992 Hoops - Bob McCann
1989 Hoops - Jerry Sloan
1992 UD - Dan Schayes - I love the Boston Garden in the background here. One of those instantly recognizable buildings.
1993 Ultra - Buck Johnson
2015 Prizm - Channing Frye
1990 Fleer - Jack Sikma
2016 Excalibur Battlements - Hassan Whiteside - Insert!
1993 UD - Todd Day
1996 Score Board - Antoine Walker - I'm counting this as a Celtics card. As always - my binders, my rules.
1990 Skybox - Michael Smith
1992 UD - John Salley
1992 Topps - Michael Adams
1998 Finite - Allan Houston - The first of quite a few numbered cards in this. This one was numbered to a somewhat odd /4050.
2018 Hoops - Dante Exum
1995 Metal - Mahmoud Abdul Rauf
1991 Skybox - Terry Catledge
1991 Fleer - Danny Manning
1991 UD - Glen Rice
1990 Fleer - Bill Laimbeer
1993 Hoops 5th - John Paxson
1990 Hoops - Thurl Bailey
1999 Force - Rick Fox
1992 UD - Adam Keefe
1992 Stad. Club - Mike Sanders
1992 Ultra - Buck Johnson
1992 Stad. Club - Clarence Weatherspoon
1989 Hoops - Ricky Pierce
2008 Topps Signature - Paul Pierce - Here's another numbered card, going to /2325.
2005 Slam - Brad Miller
2015 Prizm - Victor Oladipo
1993 UD - Jon Koncak - The block doesn't get enough photographic love on cards.
1992 Ultra - Rick Fox
1991 Fleer - Sam Mitchell
1994 SP - AC Green
1989 Fleer - Frank Brickowski - Brick is a rather unfortunate part of a basketball player's name.
1993 Hoops - Mark Jackson
1992 Stad. Club - Paul Pressey
1989 Hoops - Steve Colter
1997 Skybox - Juwan Howard
1994 Hoops - BJ Armstrong
2015 Donruss - Tyson Chandler - One of my favourite recent Donruss designs. I love it when the border colours match the team's.
1989 Fleer - Jeff Hornacek
2016 Donruss - Damian Lillard
2013 Panini - Danny Granger
2010 Hoops - Jonas Jerebko
1990 Skybox - Nate McMillan - There were a lot of 1990 Skybox in this, but I think this one uses the concept of the design best.
1991 UD - Rony Siekaly
1993 Hoops - Duane Ferrell
1990 Fleer - John Salley
1992 Stad. Club - Bryant Stith
1992 Hoops - Chuck Person
2016 Excalibur Crusade Camo - Hassan Whiteside - Panini got a lot of mileage out of this photo in Excalibur.
1994 Ultra - Tom Hammonds
1990 Skybox - Fred Roberts
2018 Hoops - Markelle Fultz
1991 Fleer - Pat Riley - Ending on a coach.
Definitely a solid start with the hit, some solid photos, and a couple team PC cards. It gets better next time with a set I definitely was not expecting to find in a repack.
Very cool to see the 2008-09 Topps Signature card of Pierce in this cube. I busted a case of that product and built that set, the red parallel set, the autograph set (with help from other collectors), and part of the black facsimile parallel set.ReplyDelete
1996 Scoreboard is a great set. Bought a ton of it at the time trying to load up on John Wallace cards (he has two in the set). I'd like to go back and build those NCAA sets from the 90's.ReplyDelete
'89 Fleer, '90 and '91 Skybox are three more sets I wouldn't mind taking a stab at too.
I like me some SkyBox.ReplyDelete
