The Guilt-Free Basketball Card Club (GFBCC) Wants You!

The GFBCC has relaunched! Get basketball cards in your mail for little to no effort... guilt-free!  UPDATED 07/10/2020

This is the sign-up page for the Guilt-Free Basketball Card Club. Dreamy Ed O'Bannon* wants you to join the club! It's free(ish) and guilt-free!

How to Sign Up: Send me an email, direct message on Twitter or reply in the comments to this post. Make sure to include your current mailing address!

What to Do After Signing Up: Wait for cards to show up. Occasionally keep my want lists in consideration (PC / Teams / Sets) when you have some extra cards, especially if you haven't sent me anything in awhile.

Here's a link to the old club page. There are no real rules, and multiple people can claim multiple teams/players. If you only collect guys named Ed, that's cool, too!

* Incidentally, Soft Focus Ed O'Bannon wants you also to know that he will one day be responsible for collegiate athletes getting compensated for their likenesses in video games... and, tragically, the complete demise of college video games.


  1. Can I claim the Milwaukee Bucks, Hakeem Olajuwon, and Steve Nash? I will send you an e-mail. Thanks for doing this!

  2. I'd like to reclaim the Nets and Warriors, add the Knicks if possible, and lay claim to any Elton Brand cards you may find. I have been more on hockey than NBA lately but I am saving all Blazers for you.

  3. I would like to claim the Cleveland Cavaliers and Lebron James cards in any uniform he has played in.

  4. I sent you an email with my address. Thanks foepr doing this giveaway.

  5. I see Billy claimed the Knicks, but if you end up with Knicks dupes, I’m always down for some.

  6. Milwaukee Bucks, Larry Johnson, Ray Allen, Kevin Garnett,and Michael Finley. My address is W2118 Daisy Lane Brillion, WI 54110

  7. I would be in for the Kings again

  8. I love the Houston Rockets. Platonically, not romantically. I also specifically collect Gheorghe Muresan, Manute Bol, Spud Webb, and Muggsy Bogues. And I probably owe you a package.

  9. I updated the list based on your comments. Keep in mind that there's not a one-person-per-team policy or anything like that. Spread the word!

  10. Thanks for signing me up. Perfect!

  11. Thanks again for this! In addition to Mo Bamba and Clint Capela, another subset of guys I collect but always forget to mention are undersized guards. So if you can add Muggsey Bogues, Spud Webb, and Earl Boykins to my player collections list, along with the guys I mentioned in on the old sign-up page: Deandre Jordan, Rudy Gobert, Andre Drummond, Kenneth Faried, Tyson Chandler, Andrei Kirilienko, Ben Wallace, Eric Murdock, Theo Ratliff, Michael Cage, Kevin Willis, Manute Bol, Dikembe Mutombo, Larry Smith, Charles Oakley, Buck Williams, Dennis Rodman, Mark Eaton, Shawn Bradley, Marcus Camby, Danny Manning, Donyell Marshall, Jayson Williams.

    I've got a stack of Blazers and Cardinals coming your way soon.

  12. I would be interested in 90's base for EX2000 series or Spx. I would also take any Allan Houston and John Starks. And inserts from 95-99

  13. I was in the old group with the Wizards. Would like to be back in this one. Got to see what Blazers I have to send your way.

  14. Charlotte Hornets for me. No real PC, but I collect NC State alumni

  15. I’d be interested in any Boston Celtics. Thanks

  16. I would like any Dener Nuggets,Miami Heat,and Phoenix Suns that you have.Thanks:)
