1993-94 NBA Hoops Series II
It's College Football Saturday, so why not check out a really old pack of basketball cards?! NBA Hoops was celebrating their fifth anniversary at this point, but had already been acquired by rival SkyBox. I might have actually paid a buck for this.
397 - Harvey Grant - The Blazers brought over Horace Grant's younger brother to be one of their big pieces after a few solid seasons with Washington as part of what was the slow dismantling of their great teams of the early '90s.
361 - Matt Geiger - Full color backs! I always appreciated the college stats on the back. With Panini now, we're lucky if we get any stats at all.
344 - Eric Riley - Not a memorable name to me.
420 - Checklist #2 - Alright, a checklist! Series 2 usually means rookies and a few random guys that changed teams recently, along with some subsets. David Robinson is lurking in the background here.
330 - Greg Anderson - Hey, it's Cadillac Anderson.
355 - Kurt Rambis - Sort of a cult hero because he wore glasses, I guess? Is Chris Sabo the Kurt Rambis of baseball (or maybe Eric Sogard?)
365 - Dan Schayes - Danny wears short shorts.
349 - Ken Williams 5th Anniversary - A one-per-pack parallel has this gold 5th anniversary seal on it. Pretty cool.
392 - Joe Kleine - Kleine was one of several big guys of somewhat limited utility who ended up with a ring with the Bulls.
319 - Bobby Phills - Phills died in the middle of his NBA career while street racing or something, and you can barely see him here, which is too bad.
HS25 - Shawn Kemp Scoops - Kemp is about to do something here. There's a bunch of Sonics trivia on the back. Remember the Sonics? David Stern remembers.
360 - Willie Burton - Is Burton about to dunk, lay it in or get rim-checked?
HS4 - Scottie Pippen Scoops - I'm not really buying into these.
