If I am not mistaken, tonight it is the NBA draft. It is not for everyone but I love the business side of the NBA and I find the draft very entertaining. Unfortunately I am probably going to miss this year’s because it is my friends birthday. Oh wells. I guess I can still have a little basketball pack break.
Anyways, I am a sucker for repacks. I just can’t help it and I picked up yet another repack today. This one has 100 “random” basketball cards and at least 1 autograph or memorabilia card. I figure at the very least I get a Yao Ming card that I may or may not need for my PC and a random hit for cheap.
As expected, I got a bunch of filler that I will probably give away. I have reach the point in my collection that I can only keep the cards I really want. The collation isn’t great as all the cards are either from the 1996 Topps Finest, 1996 Upper Deck or 2004-05 Topps sets which can be a good or a bad thing.
Of those the only one I am going to keep is Hakeem Olajuwon but for a second, I thought I also pulled Magic Johnson’s rookie card. Off by only one letter.
Anyways for the hit, I got a…
Jason Kidd game used floor card, which is interesting. It has the same problem has mat card in MMA cards, which is it is as much as a memorabilia card of Jason Kidd as the benchwarmer on the same team. Plus the floor is from the Boston Garden… But it is definitely better than a boring single white swatch and they really don’t make cards like these anymore. Overall for less than $10, this Jason Kidd card is a lot more exciting than the runner memorabilia card I pull from the $100 box of Sportkings.
