Wow the Knicks and the 76ers went back and forth the whole game and it went down to the last procession. Up by 1 they actually got a stop to win it.
I have the weirdest pack of cards I ever opened. It is 2005-06 Topps Pristine and the gimmick is that it is a pack in a pack in a pack. Take a second to think about it. It is like a Matryoshka doll (had to look it up). Anyways it is guarantee an uncirculated card (whatever that means) and a relic card of a star player.
So in a first pack which was packaged like a blister pack so it really is a pack in a pack in a pack in a pack…
The good news is the uncirculated card is of a Knick. The bad news is that Knicks is team killer Stephen Marbury (7/325). In case the scan is not clear, it is encased with a Topps tamper proof sticker. My question is that since it came from a pack isn’t it circulated?
Within that pack is:
Nice. If I am not mistaken Chris Paul was drafted 2005 so this is a relic rookie card (175/350). I think that is Jay Z on the pack…
Finally within that pack is:
It is was quite the point guard centric pack and all in all not bad. It is certainly something a little different. The card aren’t all that special and it reminds me of Topps Finest for some reason. The listed price on the pack is $29.99 and I got it for $24.99 in Toys R Us. Nothing (I mean NOTHING) is on sale in the Toy R Us in Times Square but it didn’t scan and I was nice to the manager that came. It is shows how being friendly and polite can help you in life.
The CotG (Card of the Game) could be Stephen Marbury because he is the only Knick in the pack or it could be Chris Paul the best point guard in the game right now. In the end I chose Stephen Marbury (base card since the case of the uncirculated card will never fit in a binder) because there is no denying his influence (however negative) on the Knicks. Plus it is a good reminder has bad the Isiah era was.
