CotG: 2008-09 Upper Deck Basketball First Edition

The Knicks won the game against the Bulls by a thread with David Lee being the hero. But a win is a win.

Today, I have two packs of 2008-09 Upper Deck Basketball First Edition. This is probably the cheapest basketball pack you get these days. I got these for only $.50 each.

Pack 1:
Earl Watson
Amare Stoudemire
Jose Calderon
Bill Walker
Oscar Robertson
Dwight Howard Starquest
Josh Howard
JR Smith
Andre Owens
Linas Kleiza

Pack 2:
Maurice Williams
Michael Finley
Al Jefferson
Malik Hairston
JJ Hickson
Andrew Bynum- Gold Parallel?
Allen Iverson Starquest
Joe Johnson
Jason Richardson
Mike Miller

Not bad for a buck. The First Edition design definitely works better for portrait cards rather than landscape cards. The silver bar in landscape cards just takes up too much real estate on the card. I was close to choosing Oscar Robertson as the CotG (Card of the Game) because he is a legend but honestly I care more about the stars of today rather than the stars of yesteryear when it comes to basketball card collecting. Dwight Howard is one of my favorite players especially after the last two dunk contest and the Magic playoff run so he is the CotG.

Just FYI, the Shot Not Taken contest ends this Sunday so put you entries in soon.

    Horizontal photo cards just don’t work for Basketball or mostly anyother sport.
