I always thought that Upper Deck had the upper hand in basketball more than any other sport due to their exclusive contracts with LeBron James, Kobe Bryant and Michael Jordan. These were the top 3 most desirable autographs at the time so if you were busting any kind of high priced boxes, it had to be Upper Deck. Here’s an Alma Mater card of His Airness in his UNC uni.
Here’s another numbered parallel. This time it comes from the School Ties insert set. Holiday has had a decent career to this point, but I think that Kareem brings a lot more to this card than he does. It’ll be interesting to see what this card does up on eBay.
Three base autos in this boxes and they were of Connor Atchley /999, Courtney Fells /999 and Daniel Hackett /999.
The parallel autograph in this box is a Nick Calathes and it is numbered to 249. Calathes was drafted by the Timberwolves and then traded to the Dallas Mavericks. This was in spite of Calathes announcing that he would not go to the NBA and would instead play in the Greek A1 League. I can’t wait to see how many Greek Basketball fans are on eBay.
No redemption card in this box.
