Hope everyone had a good Valentine's Day. It just so happens that the holiday occurs during the NBA All-Star break. And with All-Star Saturday Night festivities all done, it's time for a basketball pack. From the (then) $1.49 Target discount bin, it's a pack of 2002-2003 Upper Deck Basketball Series 2!
|No MJ, no KG, no Kobe?|
#240 - Shawn Bradley
#369 - Jerome James
There were 220 cards in Series 2 with Manu Ginobili and Carlos Boozer being the big rookies in the set (the other rookes were in Series 1). You've got the standard full-bleed Upper Deck photography as well.
#328 - Mark Pope
#PG3 - Jason Kidd
No # - UD Bucks card (not pictured)
Don't mess with Mark Pope. The Rated PG inserts were 1 in every 24 packs.
#364 - Steve Kerr
#371 - Calvin Booth
Steve got better as the color analyst on TNT as the years went by, and now is showing he's a pretty good coach too.
#250 - Chauncey Billups
#302 - Kevin Ollie
And while many seemed to think Kerr would make a good coach, I don't remember many pegging Kevin Ollie to be one as well. I don't follow college basketball too closely, but hey, if you win a championship, you gotta be capable.
Here's some backs for you:
Anyway, that's the pack. Enjoy the All-Star game, and thanks for reading!
