CotG: Upper Deck Team USA

Because of friend’s birthday party, I missed what must have been a good Knicks game. O wellz.

For the CotG (Card of the Game) today, I have this pack.

The pack:
Karl Malone
Grant Hill
Shaquille O’Neal
Karl Malone
Anfernee Hardaway
Lisa Leslie
Hakeem Olajuwon
David Robinson
Hakeem Olajuwon- Double
Glenn Robinson
Dawn Staley
John Stockon

I didn’t know what to expect from this pack but I’m quite pleased with it. It is great to see, in a basketball pack, 90’s NBA stars with a few women players sprinkled in. I like the design and the irregular shape to them. It has an eye catching appeal to them without being overly flashy (which too many 90’s cards are guilty of). This pack definitely beat most of this year’s basketball releases.

Honestly, any card from this pack could be the CotG. The Mailman and Hakeem the Dream are among my favorite players but in the end I choose John Stockon. Stockon’s card just stands out from the rest with its sliver flag foil design.

    Oh man these were so cool back in my early days of collecting. Thanks for the mark out moment. 🙂
