Basketball cards that don't seem to actually exist
GeorgehenryCollec had a great thread in the football section that resulted in a lot of cards being found so I thought it would be a good idea to have a basketball one.
What cards seem to not exist even though they are listed on an inventory or a checklist? Post here and maybe a member can help you find it!Trade Bucket: Hidden Content

As a set builder, I have verified through eBay, Sportlots, and other places that these do not, in fact, exist:
1993-94 Hoops Fifth Anniversary Gold Checklists (298-300)
1999-00 SkyBox APEX Vernon Maxwell 105
small edit: the series two gold parallel checklists don't exist for Hoops, either.

In the same vein, other 90s parallel sets that don't include the base checklists are:
1995-96 Jam Session Die-Cuts (#119, 120)
1995-96 Metal Silver Spotlight (#119, 120)
Some error cards that the Beckett claims exists, but years of fruitless searching has shown me they do not exist:
1981-82 Topps East Checklist #93 - error version that says WEST 93 instead of EAST 93
1990-91 Fleer Dan Majerle #150 - error version that says "award in 1988"
1990-91 Hoops Terry Porter #249 - error version missing NBA logo on the back
1990-91 Skybox Dennis Rodman #91 - version with Skybox logo in upper right
1990-91 Skybox Kevin Johnson #224 - version with Skybox logo in upper right
1991-92 Fleer Dikembe Mutombo #277 - version that says "Fleer '91" in lower right
And I know the 2008-09 UD Premier Octographs card of draft picks 9-16 doesn't exist, because it was a 1/1 and the guy who ordered it as a redemption from Upper Deck said that Upper Deck would not honor the redemption and made him pick a replacement.

Wow................I'm kind of pissed now. I waited 2+ years for that card and no dice, I don't recall what the rep. told me but it ended up being replaced with other cards UD owed me. I do remember telling the rep. that I would prefer to have this card......ugh

Having looked into this set, I heard a rumour that some of his cards were live and others were redemptions that he never fulfilled.
