What is your oldest basketball game used card?
What is the oldest basketball game used card that you have? Both in terms of the oldest game used card in terms of production and game used card of the earliest vintage player?
(If it isn't clear the late 90s should be the earliest game used card you can have for the year but they have made cards of players from the 1950s and earlier so that would be the earliest vintage player)

I have a few Garnett GU from 1999-00 - still hoping to find the earlier ones someday, but right now, they are a bit out of my price range.

I remember Auto's from the early 90's, but when did they start inserting G/U into packs??

I believe the first authentic GU were in 1997-98.

This would be my oldest. It is from 2001 and is a game used basketball that the player touched with his hand dipped in paint.
