Holiday Pickups, Part 2


A few more Pacer autographs came in over the past few days to add to the collection.  The O’Neal Pristine autograph is an instant favorite for me.  Always wanted to add an autograph from this set to my collection.  Absolutely beautiful set.

Cards above are as follows:

2001-02 Topps Pristine Autographs #AJO Jermaine O’Neal
2000-01 Upper Deck Encore Star Signatures #JO Jermaine O’Neal
2010-11 Limited Monikers Gold #31 Tyler Hansbrough /99


Friday Frivolity: 1991-92 Upper Deck Sam Perkins #144

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 Worthy was standing next to the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.


I tell you, 1991-92 Upper Deck has some real gems.


Friday Frivolity: 1991-92 Upper Deck Eric Leckner #204

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 as high as they were after his mid-season trade to Charlotte in the 1990-91 season, which would have been when this game photo was taken.
