I'm here tonight with a jumbo sized box of what still likely qualifies are junk wax era Upper Deck basketball cards. Everything here is up for trade/disposal... even Uncle Cliffy. I still love this card a lot. He looks like some sort of super spider dunking on a tiny hoop because of the odd camera angle. Either that, or the Memorial Coliseum was even smaller than I remember it.
The Blazers are despondent over the news of the lockout... or, more likely, Clyde Drexler's injuries and impending trade.
Out of 440 cards in the box, I received a grand total of 5 Blazers cards, 2 of which were doubles. That's totally unacceptable.
Shawn Kemp was a beast. I wonder how many of his plethora of children remember the Sonics franchise.
Sonics! Hall of Famer Gary Payton, current Blazers head coach Nate McMillan (do coaches get "locked out"?) and Kemp are among the green-clad here.
Each box contains one 3-D Triple Double Hologram card, and mine was Mr. Dikembe Mutombo, whose long career came to an excruciating end as he was carried off the Rose Garden floor during the playoffs a couple of years ago.
The crop of rookies in this box was pretty awful. Calbert Cheaney and his dorky Upper Deck cap represents here. I don't even want to talk about the tie.
These Nuggets unis, home and road, are some of the greatest of all-time. It's too bad that today's Nuggets are so incredibly unlikable.
Each pack contained an All-NBA Team insert, representing each of the 5 players of the 1st, 2nd and 3rd Teams. Did anyone remember that Mark Price was once a 1st Teamer? As in... best point guard in the league? Wow.
As mentioned, all of these cards and the other 430 in the box are up for grabs. There was seriously a Michael Jordan card in every pack, and some had two or three.
