A nice welcome back to Basketball Cards! 08/09 UD MVP and 12/13 Prestige Breaks!!
Stopped for the most part collecting basketball cards a few years ago mainly because I already collected Baseball and Football and I wasnt able to keep up with all 3 at the time, but I have still always loved the game. Anyway im a huge Knicks fan and the teams rise from complete salary cap hell the past year or so has kind of inspired me to get back into it and follow it in a collecting manor once again. Theres a few things I really appreciate about Basketball cards as opposed to other sports and one of those is the fact that it seems like Basketball is the only sport in which inserts and numbered cards are still appreciated and I like that as its what I grew up on. So over Black friday I decided to pick up a few basketball boxes and get back into it again! It was fun and I did pretty well so I cant complain.
Really wanted to try one of the new 12/13 Boxes so I went with Prestige and added a box of 08/09 UD MVP on the cheap. Heres how I did!
08/09 UD MVP:
Notable RC's (forgot how good of a draft class this was):
Sean Singletary RC
Gold Script Tim Duncan 54/100
Signatures Required Spencer Hawes/Sheldon Williams Dual Auto
not the greatest dual, but at 1:288 packs its a tough pull
So for $20 id say not toooo bad of a box!!
Now onto the box of 12/13 Prestige:
Anthony Davis/Michael Kidd-Gilchrist
Evan Turner/Mike Conley
Jason Terry/Manu Ginobili
Stars of the NBA:
Bonus Shots Gold:
Marreese Speights 132/249
Andrew Bogut 201/249
True Colors Eric Gordon Jsy:
Prestigious Picks Nikola Vucevic RC Auto:
Prestigious Picks Alec Burks RC Auto:
and the mojo.........................
Prestigious Picks Michael Kidd-Gilchrist RC Auto!!
So needless to say my return to Basketball cards has been fun and I even had a few nice pulls along the way!! Thanks for looking! All are FT or Sale

I could use the lebron dirk inserts from both breaks and the base from the prestige. I have some melo and stoudemire on my tradelist.
-BenCollecting LeBron James, ANYTHING and EVERTYTHING. Emphasis on RCs!
Also LF: Irving, Varejao, Ilgauskas, Gibson, Waiters, Zeller and Thompson in that order.
I trade by BDV (Ben Denham Value). I will use BV and SV as a starting point, but in the end it is all about what it is worth to me!
