But it would have to be 1996 Topps Chrome!! For you OG heads on here, you'll remember that '96 Chrome was a RETAIL release through Wal-Mart initially! I actually remember seeing BOXES of it for 50 dollars at my local Wal-Mart! 50 DOLLARS!!!!!!!!! Topps really didn't think Chrome would be the instant classic it became & due to having the best rookie class the NBA had seen since 1984, it was an instant hit! So much so that by 97-98, Chrome officially had hobby boxes as well!
Yup.... If I could go back in time I'd have bought as many boxes as possible

for me though.... 1996-97 Upper Deck Series 1 to complete the set.
