Recap Post coming soon with a ton of scans.


  1. Oh my God, I can't believe it! Could there have been a better group break to be my first? Two of my three favorite players in the NBA right there! Elton Brand is my #1, but when he retires, I am going to have a hard time determining between Steph Curry and Kevin Durant as my favorite. They may share it! I picked those two teams specifically hoping for something of them...I was hoping for a parallel or insert, but this takes the cake! I think all the base cards are duplicates, but at this point who cares, LOL! The Perry Jones is just an added bonus!

    1. Billy,
      Looks more and more like I'm going to random the unclaimed inserts, parallels (which to me are also "inserts") and probably the Rookie cards. At first I wasn't going to random the rookies, but many people love rookies and there are a lot of them. Looks like the unclaimed base will the only stuff I won't random. Some of the unclaimed base I am claiming for myself.
