Does it bother you when???

RE: Does it bother you when???
Kobe/Antawn might have been produced after they both had 50 in the same game? Just trying to make it work lol. I'm not a fan of dual mem unless they're on the same team, or have an obvious or historical link to one another.

And this is one someone on the 'bay would call "rare" to jack up the price.

I collect all things Duncan Keith plus other Chicago athletes in their respective Halls of Fame - in addition to several authors and personal favorites from past and present Chicago rosters. The other 37,000 cards in my collection I will happily trade to you.

I'm pretty sure the Carter/Bird dual was because they were both Fleer spokesmen that season (might be wrong on that one though, I just seem to remember that for some reason)

When Garnett was a Celtic, Mr. Statistics? Wink

Nope, he joined the Celtics long after Malone had retired.

What do you want Upper Deck to do? Use an old photo of Garnett? Even though it's a 2009-10 card?

Isn't that an old photo of Karl Malone. Of course, they do it everyday. That picture of Malone is not from the 2009-10 season, right?

Anyway, this is not a real bad example. I do agree they were/are both great power forwards and will both be in the HOF someday. I just think card companies should put a little thought into cards and we as consumers should ask for a little more.

I agree with you - some of the cards feature weird pairings.

But a card featuring Malone and Garnett makes sense to me, since they played each other plenty of times and are two of the greatest power forwards ever.

Likewise, I think the Jamison and Kobe card is cool because I remember their epic battle in the 2000-01 season (I think it was) when they both had 50+ points.

Maybe UD knew that one day Jamison would join the Lakers. Man UD is amazing! No wonder Panini is struggling. How can you compete with a company that can see into the future?

RE: Does it bother you when???
The Shaq card with him pictured in a Miami uniform while the swatch is a lakers jersey ... that is typical of upperdeck (even though the card shown is Fleer/Skybox i believe) - I guess upper deck carried on Fleer's bad habits when they bought the licensing. i can't tell you how many UD GU cards I have of Garnett showing him in a Celtics uni, but the swatch is a T'wolves jersey. And a lot of these are 2009-10 Cards!



Collect Patrick Ewing, Jalen Rose, Kevin Garnett, LaMarcus Aldridge, Jeff Green

if you have less than 25 trades, I will ask you to send first.

RE: Does it bother you when???
This thread has given me a new collecting idea. I can try to collect some of the worst combinations of GU'd cards out there as well as cards where the player is currently with a different team than the jersey/patch that is on the card.

Not sure if I will do it, but it's a thought.
