    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!

    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.

    -Ben
    Collecting 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!

    Unfortunately, I don't have any Knicks GU or autos...if you decide who you are going for in a player collection, let me know...especially if he's been in the league for any amount of time, as I'll likely have alot of base/inserts for you.
