i feel the need to share my random card excitement, but i dont have any friends who really collect cards like me so ill say it here lol

so i hardly ever pull numbered cards, and i have never pulled an event used card, but i did tonight so that was cool. i went to k mart and bought a box thing that came with 8 packs of different brands and years of cards.. and in the pack of 04-05 fleer tradition there was 3 serial #ed cards, its kind of cool, i got a ben gordon card with a piece of the hat he wore on his draft day /100, then i got antonio burks draft day rookie /375, and then a card that is like 3 mini rookie cards /375

there was only 9 cards, even though the pack was supposed to have 10, but im guessing they take one out for the GU cards since it is really thick??

im trying to figure out why it was like this..because i got a pack of these last week and all 10 cards were base, and looking at the odds on the back is giving me a headache

kind of nice for $7 though

ps- i cant seem to find the card in beckett, so if someone can help me, its 04-05 fleer tradition rookie hats off #HO-BG

thanks for looking guys, its weird how its not listed.. i looked in the online price guide. this may be common for big card traders.. but its rare for me to get anything cool in a pack of cards because ive never bought a box or anything and i dont buy card packs as often as i wish i could! :)

It's not listed in the Beckett. The highest listing one is Shaun Livingston at $25. I'm guessing this product wasn't widely broken. I'd say it's definitely worth $75-$100. That's a very nice pull out of a K-Mart misc. box. The best I've hit out of one of those is a Kidd 03-04 UD Glass Clearcut Winners GU.

i'd keep it just for the memory. there were cards that i got when i first started collecting that i traded away that i later bought back (for the memory).

i was going through my collection last thur night (decided to re-pick up my hobby) and i saw this card which i taped to my poster cuz i liked it so much and later cut it off the poster when i moved. good memory. ; )

So after reading the back i've come to the conclusion that I got a "hot pack" it was filled with insert cards for the most part, so that is why I had so many things in that one pack
