I went to Target and bought a bunch of basketball packs to commemorate the Hawks taking the evil Celts to the brink in their playoff series. I'm gonna rip 'em all right now and post them all at once because
2007-2008 Fleer Basketball
78 Zach Randolph
74 David Lee
49 Dwight Howard
170 Rafer Alston
140 Elton Brand
160 Marcus Camby
191 Amare Stoudemire
86R-137 Wilson Chandler '86 Fleer retro
This pack was chock full of Knicks, but the '86 retro card makes up for it.
2007-2008 Fleer Hot Prospects Basketball
45 Shaquille O'Neal
7 Ray Allen NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
48 Brandon Roy
NN-3 Notable Newcomers
$2 off a Spanding basketball Target coupon
Ray Allen almost ruined the pack, but the Horford insert card makes not only this pack, but the resto f them as well. I guess it's technically tied even though Ray is still in his Sonics uniform. I got two coupons in this sucker too. While I don't need a basketball, I might actually use the Upper Deck code for once. There's a Phil Niekro trading card/car thingy on there that has caught my eye. Yeah, it's stupid, but I love the ol' knuckleballer.
2007-2008 SP Basketball
20 Michael Redd
AP-50 Dr. J
100 Josh Howard
87 Chauncey Billups
61 Kobe Bean
DAMN that Dr. J card is frickin' sweet! I wonder if there's a 'Nique?
2007-2008 Bowman Draft Picks and Stars Basketball
70 Andrea Bargnani
75 Andre Miller
11 Yao Ming Chrome
108 David Lee
45 Chris Paul
This pack sucked. If it says Rookies on the pack there should be rookies in the pack. I expect better from Bowman. A shame, because the cards look slick.
2007-2008 Topps Chrome Basketball
88 Ryan Gomes
85 Clyde Drexler
117 Thaddeus Young
101 Tracy McGrady
Ugliest set of the year in any sport. The Baseball chrome looked so good too. I only got this pack hoping for a refractor and was denied. Clyde the Glide is a pretty good consolation prize though.
2007-2008 Topps Trademark Moves Basketball
47 Magic Johnson
23 LeBron James
8 Richard Hamilton
29 Eddy Curry
Nique saves the day on the last pack! Take that ya Irish bastids! Three of the 5 cards are miscut though, LeBron and Rip have a little extra bit of a basketball on the bottom of their cards. Who cares, man. Hawks are gonna win and I got a card of Magic to boot. W00t!
Update: Apparently this was A Pack A Day's 500th post and I didn't even notice. Oh well. Time to write another 500.
