One of my favorite sets. I completed it last year, finally! The two labeled subsets are actually inserts.

Any chance I could get the Cavaliers team card and the Stockton insert from you?

Great set and post. Nique is my guy but I also loved Michael Cage. Definitely a scrapper who could rebound with the best of them. Augmon is also a personal favorite. Thanks for the post.
