CotG: 1999-2000 Skybox Apex and 2000-01 Topps Basketball

The Knicks won their final home game of the season, which is always a good sign. Anyways, today I got two packs, 1999-2000 Skybox Apex and 2000-01 Topps Basketball from the card machine in my supermarket with my loose change.

Apex:
Wesley Person
Theo Ratliff
Tim Hardaway
Brevin Knight
Steve Francis 1st Impressions
Tony Battie
Tracy McGrady
Rik Smits

Topps:
Corey Benjamin
Lamar Odom
Raef LaFrentz
Dikembe Mutombo
Tim Duncan
Jamie Feick
Derek Anderson
Glen Rice
John Amaechi
Sean Elliott

The Steve Francis insert is a surprise. The card is a 1 in 12 pull and it is embossed. It definitely stands out in the pack. The Card of the Game is the Skybox Apex Tracy McGrady. The Dikembe Mutombo card with Patrick Ewing looking the wrong way for some reason is a close runner up. I just can’t wait for the season to end and to get to the offseason.

    It seems to be a little overshadowed amongst all the crazy card technologies that have come along, but embossed cards are still cool.
