You win. You have the best Jordan collection period.

I collect LeBron, Jordan, Kobe and anything that catches my eye.

RE: You've asked for it, so here it is
Holy X-mas ! Sun is shining on a winter evening.

Would you mind giving us a little insight about the collecting habits of high end MJ collectors around the century mark ? How was it acquiring such tough cards ? Did you use the internet and eBay, a nice card shop around the corner, spending hours at shows, trading with other collectors, busting boxes, etc. ?
At the end of the day, even a well funded collector today, would need years to accumulate such a near-complete collection of Jordan 90s.

Would be great to get some info from, what seems today like, a different era of collecting.

When I first started collecting, it was mainly at LCS and shows. That was until 1997 when I first started on Ebay. That changed everything in a flash. Those cards that you would almost never see at shows or in shops were right there for the taking. That meant a complete change in buying habits and I pretty much bought most of my collection on Ebay.

I used to buy boxes too, but never had a big Jordan hit in any of them. I did find some pretty good cards which could be used as trade bait, and I also sold some on Ebay.

So in the end, I guess the hobby hasn't changed much from the days I used to collect, but the main change is the price of some of those cards.

Today's update will be slightly different. As I said, I only collect Jordan cards, but at the time I also picked up some older RCs of all-time greats:

And now a few more Jordan graded cards:

I am amazed and dumbfounded. I looked like Alton Lister (#53) when I finished the first set of scans.

Great picture!

For today's update, more symptoms of that sickness called the completist disease. The gaps are holes that HAVE to be filled...
