Upcoming breaks for the next few editions of Wednesday Wax: 1998-99 Bowman’s Best 1999-00 Stadium Club Chrome Really excited about both of these breaks!
Again, saw some nice Pacer autographs on ebay that I was able to purchase for reasonable prices. The Granger is from 09-10 Absolute serial numbered to 49, the Collison from 10-11 Gold Standard serial numbered to 299, and the George is from 10-11 Classics numbered out of 499. Excited to add these three to my… Read More Pickups of the Week: Absolute, Gold Standard, and Classics

Received two cards back yesterday signed from Chris Paul in a little over a month. This is one of my favorite successes to date. What was neat about this return was that about a week ago, Chris Paul tweeted that he was working on returning his fan mail/autograph requests, even posting a picture. Pretty cool… Read More TTM Thursday: Chris Paul Return
Sam Perkins is one of my all-time favorite players, but that doesn’t mean we can’t enjoy a humorous card featuring the ‘Big Smooth’. Nothing exceptional about the front of the card. On the card back, though, Smooth and James Worthy show off shorts they probably wore in their childhood. For a second I thought James… Read More Friday Frivolity: 1991-92 Upper Deck Sam Perkins #144
Received a Upper Deck Generations card signed by former Indiana Pacer and basketball commentator, Clark Kellogg. This was from a handful of requests I sent out back on 7/27. Probably my all-time favorite success to date. Not only did Mr. Kellogg return a card signed, but he also included a nice response to my letter.… Read More TTM Thursday: Clark Kellogg Return

Saw some good deals on ebay recently on Pacers from the new Panini National Treasures set. All three of these are serial numbered out of 25. Sharp looking cards from a nice product.
This card doesn’t need too much explanation, the visual is enough. Based on the 1990-91 Supersonics roster, the player on the left is none other than Olden Polynice, aka Officer Polynice. I wonder if these two are on speaking terms these days. It’s worth noting that Leckner’s season averages in points and rebounds were never… Read More Friday Frivolity: 1991-92 Upper Deck Eric Leckner #204
