The Dream Team 3-Card Skybox Set

Just over 1 month ago (12.15), the announcement came that Giannis Antetokounmpo signed a ‘supermax’ 5-year contract extension with the Milwaukee Bucks, and I figured since his rookie cards have seen some crazy swings this year, why not revisit them one more time to see how collectors are responding to the news. People generally don’t […]

2020’s Top 10 Winners from ’86 Fleer

For vintage basketball cards, it doesn’t get much better than the 1986 Fleer set. Everyone knows this set from the iconic Jordan rookie, but the ’86 Fleer set has a ton of other incredible rookies as well, including Clyde Drexler, Patrick Ewing, Karl Malone, and many more. I’ve gone back to December 2019 and pulled […]
