05-09-2005, 09:41 AM
For all the player collectors out there, what's you rarest or lowest numbered card in your player collection? I'm still searching for the elusive 1/1 card of him, but for my J.R. Smith collection it's a Skybox Premium Emerald parallel RC #D/15. I got it off eBay for $24 shipped.

EDIT:May 28, 2005
I now have a rarer J.R. Smith card for my collection. Actually it hasn't arrived yet, but it's a 1/1 Skybox Premium Cyan Press Plate. Can't wait for it to get here!

I have an incoming Legendary cuts "Yaz" 1/1 Jersey card, not my favorite all time Red Sox player, but a great pick-up nonetheless.(is that a word??)

I don't have any 1/1's on Ron Artest, but I do have 2 cards from the same series #/10.

the lowest card I have in my football collection is an 04 Ultimate Collection Emmitt Smith /10. Best card I have is an Emmitt Jersey /25 BV$100.

As for basketball, I have an 04/05 Skybox Premium Emerald Jersey Manu Ginobili /15.

Unfortunately no 1/1 in my collection. Nothing even under /10. :(

My best Wade thus far is #/75 (04-05 Premium Ruby). I'm a cheap, low-end college student though, so I am proud of it. : )

well I dont have any low #'d cards of my favorite players, not even my favorite sport, lol. But yesterday I puleed the lowest #'d card of my life, it was a johan santana x-tra bases auto #'d 4/5, but my favorite card is a 03/04 triple warm-up of webber/peirce/kobe sp, UNFORTUNATELY i DONT KNOW HOW MANY OF THESE WERE MADE.

The rarest Shaun Livingston card I have is a Press Pass Red Ink Autograph which is not priced due to scarcity in Beckett, but it's not numbered and I don't know how many are made. I also have a 1/1 Topps Luxury Box Amare Stoudemire Autograph and a Topps Luxury Box Shaq autograph numbered 2/10. And I have a 2004 Upper Deck Jeff Garcia Printing Plate 1/1.

Jason Schmidt 2004 Donruss Elite Status Gold 4/24 #138

Far from my best card of him but the rarest when it comes to serial numbers.

I have two of the four '04 Topps Retired Alan Trammell printing plates which are 1/1. Like some other collectors I actually find other, less rare stuff to be more interesting parts of my collection. With basketball I tend to stick to cheap stuff and sell the few inserts I pull--I think the only serial #ed basketball card I have left is a '03-04 Topps Black Erick Dampier (/500).
