Why I Like It:
Oh man, how to get started. How sweet would a modern-day Jam City set be? Blake Griffin, Dwight Howard, LeBron, etc… highlighting a set of the league’s best dunkers? Or a set with past slam-dunk champions? The Jam City name had tons of potential.
The cartoon-y black and white background makes the color shot of the player jump off the card. Putting some of the league’s arenas into the background would have been a nice touch.
One thing I found amusing from the cards above: How does Juwan have a pass into Jam City when the back of the card says that he likes to step out for 18-footers? Howard could throw it down in his younger days, but at least mention that rather than his set-shot ability.
