CANADA BASKETBALL DOLLA PACK

I JUST MADE ANOTHER ORDER ON THAT DIME BOX WEBSITE SO I CAN POST THE DOLLAR PACK I GOT LAST TIME. I LIKED IT SO MUCH I DIDN'T WANT TO SHOW OFF HOW GOOD IT WAS BEFORE I BOUGHT MORE IN CASE YOU VULTURES BOUGHT THEM ALL OUT FROM UNDER ME. BUY THE FOOTBALL AND BASEBALL AND HOCKEY ONES, I WANT MORE OF THESE EVENTUALLY


FRONT OF THE PACK: OMG JORDAN I'M RICH



BACK OF THE PACK: OMG SHINY STUFF

LET'S LOOK AT WHAT'S IN THIS THING

1996-97 COLLECTOR'S CHOICE ASSIGNMENT JORDAN GARY PAYTON


OK SO NOT A JORDAN. BUT THE CARD HAS AS MANY PICTURES AND MENTIONS OF JORDAN'S NAME AS PAYTON'S. GARY PAYTON IS A HALL OF FAMER TOO, THEY COULD HAVE AT LEAST PUT HIS NAME ON THE FRONT



1994-95 COLLECTOR'S CHOICE HAWKS TIP OFF DANNY MANNING SILVER SIGNATURE


ANOTHER EXTREMELY CONFUSING COLLECTOR'S CHOICE CARD, IT TOOK ME THREE LOOKS BEFORE I FINALLY FIGURED OUT THIS WAS A HAWKS CARD. EVERY YEAR I AM ON THIS BITCH OF AN EARTH I GET MADDER THAT THE HAWKS TRADED NIQUE FOR THIS STIFF. THE TEAM IS PLAYING GREAT WITH GREAT CHEMISTRY SO LET'S TRADE THE FRANCHISE FOR A BUM THAT IMMEDIATELY BOUNCED FOR PHOENIX. HAVEN'T LIKED LENNY WILKENS SINCE THEN EITHER, FIRST SEED IN THE EAST AND CHOKE TO INDIANA. DOMINIQUE IS STILL ON THE TEAM WE GO TO THE FINALS. AND GET DESTROYED BY HAKEEM, BUT WE GO TO THE FINALS



1990-91 FLEER ALL STARS CLYDE DREXLER


WAS NOT EXPECTING HALL OF FAMER INSERTS IN THE DOLLA PACK. NOT AT ALL. MAYBE SOME STAR BASE CARDS AND A NOBODY INSERT BUT NOT CLYDE. THIS WAS THE MOMENT I DIDN'T REGRET PICKING UP ANOTHER COUPLE OF PACKS


1997-98 HOOPS TALKIN' HOOPS ANTOINE WALKER


B I L L   W A L T O

OMG THIS PACK. IN OTHER NEWS I WANT TO BUILD THIS SET NOW



1992-93 TOPPS PAUL PRESSEY


FIRST LEGIT COMMON CARD AND IT'S STILL INTERESTING. HOW MANY COACH CARDS DO YOU SEE OUT THERE. YOU SHOULD SEE MORE BECAUSE THERE ARE A LOT OF COOL FORMER PLAYERS COACHING OUT THERE. ALSO: PAUL PRESSEY WAS THE MVP OF THE FIRST STATIS-PRO BASKETBALL SIM LEAGUE SEASON I COMPLETED. DUDE WAS A GOOD PLAYER

1996-97 TOPPS KERRY KITTLES


KERRY KITTLES ROOKIE CARD. THIS IS FROM THE SAME SET AS THE KOBE ROOKIE. THIS MIGHT HAVE BEEN ON THE SAME SHEET AS THE KOBE. EVERY TIME I TYPE KOBE ROOKIE THE VALUE OF THIS CARD GOES UP A TINY FRACTION, LIKE DOGECOIN. KOBE ROOKIE. ALSO A VILLANOVA LEGEND. GO WILDCATS


1990-91 HOOPS LARRY BIRD


OK SURE, 1990 HOOPS WAS PRINTED IN 1990 DONRUSS OR UPPER DECK QUANTITIES, BUT STILL IT'S LARRY FUCKIN BIRD. ALL LARRY JOE CARDS SHOULD BE WARMLY WELCOMED INTO YOUR COLLECTION. EVEN IF THE CHEATIN ROTTEN BASTARD KEPT RUINING MY HAWKS IN THE 80S, THE JERK



1993-94 TOPPS CHRIS WEBBER DRAFT PICK


ANOTHER STAR ROOKIE. THIS TIME OF A GUY WHO SHOULD BE GETTING AT LEAST SOME HALL OF FAME TALK. OK FINE HE CALLED TIMEOUT. HE WAS A BEAST AT HIS PEAK AND HIS COLLEGE CAREER WASN'T CHOPPED LIVER EITHER. NOT HIS FAULT HE GOT STUCK IN SACRAMENTO



1993-94 STADIUM CLUB PATRICK EWING FREQUENT FLYERS


ANOTHER STAR SUBSET CARD. FROM WHEN STADIUM CLUB BECAME TSC AND THE TEXT ON THE BACK WAS FORESHADOWING THE NEXT HALF-DECADE OF EDGY SLANG NONSENSE ON THE BACK OF TRADING CARDS




1992 SKYBOX LENNY WILKINS USA BASKETBALL


WHY DID YOU TRADE NIQUE YOU ARROGANT ASS

I MEAN, FUCK YEAH 1992 SKYBOX SERIES 2 CARDS! I NEED MOST OF THIS SET AND I DESPAIR EVER FINDING A BOX OF THE STUFF EVER AGAIN SO I WILL TAKE ANY AND ALL CARDS I CAN FIND

2000-01 TOPPS GALLERY DENNIS RODMAN


GENERALLY THE WAY I JUDGE RANDOM DOLLA PACKS IS THUSLY: 50 CENTS FOR THE ENTERTAINMENT VALUE OF OPENING SOMETHING UP AND GETTING TO BE SURPRISED WITH NEW CARDS. THEN PICKING OUT CARDS I WOULD ACTUALLY PAY MONEY FOR. RIGHT NOW THE ONLY ONE IN THIS PACK I WOULD HAVE PASSED OVER IN A DIME BOX IS THE PRESSEY AND THAT IS ONLY BECAUSE I HAVE IT ALREADY. I PICKED UP A COUPLE RODMANS IN MY FIRST CARD ORDER, I DEFINITELY WOULD HAVE BOUGHT THIS ONE IF I FOUND IT ONLINE



2019-20 DONRUSS JOHN WALL


THE PANDEMIC FUCKED UP MY USUAL JUNK BOX SCROUNGING OF HOOPS AND DONRUSS BASE SETS SO I'M HAPPY TO GET SOME NEWER CARDS. ESPECIALLY OF PLAYERS WHO ARE ACTUALLY GOOD. I'M STILL NOT USED TO HIM BEING IN A HOUSTON UNIFORM THOUGH



2000-01 FLAIR SHOWCASE NEXT JONATHAN BENDER


THIS CARD CONFUSED ME AT FIRST, I COULDN'T FIGURE OUT IF IT WAS METAL OR FLAIR OR A BASE CARD OR WHAT WHEN I FIRST SAW IT. SHOWCASE WAS NOT MUCH ON MY RADAR IN THE EARLY 00S, ESPECIALLY INSERTS. JONATHAN BENDER WAS A HIGH SCHOOL PHENOM BACK WHEN THAT MEANT SOMETHING. UNFORTUNATELY THE CAREER GOT SIDETRACKED BY BAD KNEES



1992 FRONT ROW TOM GUGLIOTTA


NOW THIS IS THE STUFF I EXPECT IN REPACKS. OFF BRAND JUNK WAX BASKETBALL DRAFT PICKS. PURPLE GRADIENT BORDERS WITH A BRIGHT PRIMARY COLORED QUADRILATERAL NAMEPLATE! I SWOON FROM AN OVERDOSE OF EARLY 90S. AND TOM WAS ACTUALLY A GOOD PLAYER! THE FACT HE EVEN PLAYED IN THE LEAGUE PUTS HIM AHEAD OF ABOUT 80% OF ALL THE PLAYERS IN THOSE DRAFT PICK SETS.  THIS IS NOT A CARD I WOULD PICK OUT OF A DIME BOX BUT I CERTAINLY APPRECIATE IT IN MY HANDS


1997-98 BOWMAN'S BEST MARTIN MUURSEPP


ESTONIAN LEGEND ON A SHINY BOWMAN'S BEST CARD. PLAYED BASKETBALL FOR TWENTY YEARS AND TWO OF EM WERE IN THE NBA. CAN'T COMPLAIN ABOUT THAT. I DON'T KNOW IF THIS IS AN INSERT OR IF BOWMAN'S BEST SEPARATED THEIR BASE SET INTO VETS AND ROOKIES. BOWMAN BASKETBALL HAS DONE A LOT OF QUESTIONABLE THINGS DURING THE YEARS, THE CARD LOOKS NEAT THOUGH 


CAN ABSOLUTELY SAY THAT I ENJOYED THE HECK OUT OF THIS DOLLA PACK. WAY BETTER THAN THE ONES I USED TO FIND AT THE CARD SHOP OR DOLLAR TREE. NEXT BATCH I GOT ENOUGH PACKS TO SIMULATE A $5 TARGET OR WALGREENS JUNK BOX. LOOKING FORWARD TO MAKING A COMPARISON TO THAT WHEN IT ARRIVES

HAPPY SCROUNGING EVERYONE

Much better repack than I was expecting! Hope you post more of these and I get to live vicariously through you.

Solid pack. Mine wasn't quite as solid... but was well worth the dollar I paid. When I place my next order, I'll definitely order more of these mystery packs.

Jafronius: got five more coming so if i can dig up an old unopened hoops pack it'll be just like opening a $5 Walgreen repack

Fuji: yeah I liked both my repacks, took a chance on a baseball one this time too
