Can the Big 3 from Miami thrive in the clutch? Can the young guns from Oklahoma City win big games against experienced teams? Can the defending champs regain their form?

I’ve been collecting cards since as far back as 1990, starting at the age of eight. Basketball cards, which I collect primarily nowadays, did not really become huge in my city until 1994.

We find an autographed card every few packs and the vast majority of the time, the reaction goes something like: “Who’s that??” Then we go home and try to find out who this guy is whose signature we now own.

Picked up a box and four loose packs of 07-08 SP Rookie Edition on Monday, and here are the three hits that I got as well as a look at the other cards’ design.
14 Packs per box, 8 Cards per pack Average price per box, $68-$80
Find at least 42 rookie cards and two autograph cards per box on average. With three rookie cards per pack, this is your best chance to grab all the rookies from the highly touted 2007-08 NBA Draft class. Look for rookie cards in classic and unique SP designs from 94/95 SP, 96/97 SP, 97/98 SP and 1998 More >
