Back in the day, I used to not only collect basketball cards but also a few X-Men cards as well (yep, I was kind of a nerdy kid). One of the cooler aspects of the X-Men cards were the different scenes you could assemble from 9-card sets. Keeping the X-Men cards in a binder allowed […]
A look back at the rookie card value for each two-player team featured in the original 1993 NBA Jam.
Last week I woke up to an interesting email from a collector informing me that she had a Jordan error card that I hadn’t highlighted in my April post about Jordan error cards. She included a photo, and after a bit of research and posting to the basketball twitter community, I found out she was […]

Jobs preferred simplicity and minimalism to complexity, and the look of these rookie cards are beautifully simplistic, […]
