Back to HOST posting, after not scanning anything that didn't go to it's own post at all last week!
Starting out is a cool insert from 1999-00 EX, EX-Ceptional. I found out recently these came in three different colors, I've only seen red. I wish my scan of the Elton Brand card in the set came out as good as this Odom card did!
Here are the two Taco Bell cards I wasn't able to get scanned in time to make my November trade recap. Note the rounded corners, which are a dead giveaway they are Taco Bell issues. The copyright info on the back also mentions Taco Bell.
Take a look at this 1993-94 Fleer base card. Do you notice anything strange about it?
I really miss team cards. The last that were issued that I am aware of was 2010-11, and the last time before that was 2005-06. There is so much that can be done with a team card, but they go ignored. (Team stats, a recap of their season, history of the team, team records, all-time leaders, and that's not even counting the simplistic team checklist.) This card, from 1993-94 Upper Deck, carries the team's schedule for the 1993-94 season on the back.
Is there a card that better represents the 1990s and 2000s in the NBA? One of the few cards to feature these two players combined. It's not too easy to tell from the scan but the borders are holofoil.
While not related to cards (yet), here are a couple of pictures of our Christmas tree.
