I know some of you either still do or, mostly likely, at one point in time did collect basketball cards. some of you may even know that I actually have (from what I know) the best Damon Stoudamire collection in the world. but this isnt a damon or blayza FYI for everyone's benefit, 90s era cards are going fuckin ballistic and have been for a few years. the mid 90s brought in the first real auto set, the Skybox Autographics line, and also signaled the start of jersey/patch cards and serially numbered inserts. the real 'grail' of the serial numbered inserts from this period has been the (again) Skybox Metal Universe's Previous Metal Gems. They are serial numbered to 100, but the first 10 are green, the remaining 90 are red. In all my years of collecting, since damon was at arizona, ive only seen 3 DS reds and 1x Green (which is owned by a multi multi millionaire trying to get the set, shit) and i've bought 2 of the DS reds ive seen. The green's are basically mythical in the world of card collecting.... and currently we are blessed to see what is arguably the most desirable insert on the planet up for sale atm the Michael Jordan PMG Green 6/100 https://www.ebay.com/itm/1997-Metal...5:g:ltwAAOSwmvtcY0u7:rk:1:pf:1&frcectupt=true this is actually the 2nd auction for this as the first (just a few days back) got wildly out of control on bidding, its since moved to pre-approved bidders only now). The hobby has been ablaze with speculation of sell price, many picking 80-120K.... in the first auction it hit just under 600k in less that 24hrs. breaks pumped, relisted and vetted now. its already over 100k after being listed for 3hrs at the time i post this. there has also been some REALLY amazing cards pop up recently which people (including me) thought id never see as they are mid 90s and never revealed or anything, just a lot of collectors dreaming and assuming they were in a pack/box/collection somewhere or lost/destroyed. Here's a couple of incredible cards that have turned up recently. Grant Hill Essential Credentials Now 1/1 and the Jordan Fleer Ultra 1 of 1 Masterpiece probably north of 100k in those 2 cards there - same collector, got them on release, got married stopped collecting, friend looking through his stuff, saw these, died. and this turned up the other day too another essential credentials future, TMAC 1/2 - unreal.
