Mailbag - Cardboard History - Part 1 of 2

 A small box worth of cards showed up several weeks back from Billy @ Cardboard History, and it was the perfect box to break down into two posts. Basketball and hockey, with a nice number of  the former, and a lot of the latter. 

And a Pascal Siakam rookie card is a perfect way to start recapping the former!
And here's another rookie of one of only a handful of guys still around, just a few years later, from their Championship run. All the red on this card pops so nicely with the black and white background for a nice design.
The Junkyard Dog is always worthy of a highlight in a post. He might have been the most popular Raptor not named Vince Carter from the early 00s.
Here's a sampling of the remainder of that portion.

But, he also remembered I'm starting my way to a Dikembe PC. It is kinda fledgling so far, but this immediately became my favourite photo in the collection.
But that upper-left card is pretty nice as well.

And there you have Part 1. The Senators content will likely be shown off next week.


  1. The SkyBox Premium Mutombo wins it - slamming it home with a good view of his Nuggets jersey.

  2. I was a big fan of Dikembe and Jerome Williams, but only collect the former.

  3. I like the mini snowman Mutombo, because it's different.

  4. I totally missed this post, haha. Glad you like them! Just a day after I mailed this I found a couple more Dikembe cards...already starting the next package.
