    Late 90's Basketball set question....HELP ME OUT!

    Hey guys,

    Me and my buddy were talking about old times last night, and we got to thinking about this basketball set. Anyone able to ID what set this is about? I've looked and looked and looked, and can't come up with anything....

    Anyways, back in the late 90's (had to have been around that time frame), there was a basketball set out. Considering we were young, the packs had to have been cheap to buy, because I know we bought a TON of these packs. In the packs, there were mini posters....they were folded in the packs, and when unfolded, they would be the size of 4 cards in a square shape.

    I remember there were either 25 or 30 posters in the set, and they had all the bigger names at the time....I remember Shawn Kemp, and I'm pretty sure Kobe was in there....if that helps with the timeframe at all.

    Anyways...I wish I had more information, because all of that is vague, but anyone able to possibly help out and tell me what set these were in?!?!?!?

    Thanks a bunch guys!

    That's what I was thinking....I really thought for sure they were from a Hoops set, but my buddy kept saying it was a Collector's Choice set.

    Yeah, it was 1997 Hoops, subset: Great Shots. The odds was 1:2 packs, 30 posters in all.

    I remember pulling the kobe poster.
