1989-90 NBA Hoops

Ok, so this will be the last time (probably) that I mention basketball cards on a baseball card blog. This set is like a bad penny. It just keeps turning up in my collection. I remember in 1989 when this set was all the rage due to the David Robinson rookie cards. I wanted to purchase packs of this stuff but when the card stores where charging anywhere from $1-$3 dollars a pack, I just couldn't bite. As time went on thought, and these cards became MUCH more affordable I had to add this set to my collection. This is probably the third time I've had this set in my collection after getting rid of it twice because I felt like it just didn't belong. This time it's here to stay for good. Coupled with the fact that I was able to track down the special promotional binder that was released with these cards in 1989, I'm glad to have this bad penny turn up once more.

  1. Great card! There might be millions of copies of it floating around our hobby... but it doesn't take away the fact that it's an iconic card that played a huge role in our hobby history.

    1. Thanks Fuji. Yeah, I still remember when they were going for $30 a pop. Crazy! I'll be praying for your Mom for a speedy recovery.
