Hope everyone's ready for the weekend. It's certainly been a long week for the good old U.S.A., from the tragedy in Boston, to the destruction in Texas, to the flooding in Chicago. Thoughts and prayers to the victims and our faithful readers in the affected areas.
Since tomorrow sees the start of the NBA playoffs, it's time for a basketball pack. Here's some 2008-09 Fleer Basketball Glossy Parallels!
|I, for one, hope Kobe can come back and retire on his own terms.|
#19 – Jameer Nelson
#24 – Zydrunas Ilgauskas
#17 – Dwight Howard
#49 – Mike Bibby
The borders strike me as something from the 1990's. The photography's pretty average; they did a good job on the 2 Magic players.
#151 – Nene (back)
#106 – Luke Walton
#180 – Al Thornton
#210 – Brook Lopez (Rookie)
Showing the back of Nene's card. The front's just him walking off the court pumping his fist...nothing exciting. The backs of the base set look the same, without the Glossy bubble, of course. The backs could have benefited from a brief write-up, but notice they don't include the player's birth date or school attended either.
Anyway, that's the pack. Enjoy the playoffs...I say Heat and OKC in the finals (that's a stretch). Thanks for reading!
