A visual recap of 2020 from the eyes of a basketball fan and card enthusiast.
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 […]
One of the best Michael Jordan base cards you can buy for under $10!
When the Boston Celtics made the trades for Kevin Garnett and Ray Allen I was absolutely elated, because I felt like the C’s finally had a team that could make a deep playoff push and possibly even have enough to win a title or two. The only two unknowns at the time were point guard […]
If you need proof that more isn’t always better, just look at the 1996-97 SP Premium Collection Holoview cards. It’s a shame, because this was a great year for basketball card collecting, and it saddens me to see an insert ruined by trying to do too much. Before I start complaining about all the bad, […]

Who doesn’t love a nice refractor? Before Panini took over as the be all end all for basketball cards, Bowman had a great thing going with basketball card collectors and included regular refractors as well as atomic refractors in various sets throughout the 90s.

If you follow any card people on Twitter or any of the other social media platforms out there, you may have seen people talking about incredible cards they just found going through their old stuff. I’m not a total cynic, and I’m sure at least a few honest collectors do once in a while stumble […]
Kebma Walker recently helped the Celtics sweep the Philadelphia 76ers in Round 1 of the Eastern Conference playoffs. Walker and Tatum combined for 58 points in the fourth and final game, more than half of the teams total of 110 points. This is Kemba Walker’s first trip to the second round of the NBA playoffs […]
I put up a poll on Twitter the other day asking about collectors feelings toward die cut cards. Personally, I’m not a big fan. However, 100% of the people that responded said they “Love ’em”, which I found a bit surprising. Oh and a big thank you to the two people who responded to my […]
