Does it bother you when???
I like Game used cards and usually stick to single player jerseys not multiple but there are always exceptions. But it drives me crazy when card companies put players together on cards that have no business being together. Sorry for the photos, stole them off the bay. These aren't my cards.

Obviously this is my opinion, but was wondering what the rest of you think.

Bad combinations

What do these players have to do with each other? Not even the same team?

Really?

Don't Put these guys together as a Laker / Heat. See card further down.

I don't think these guys ever played against each other especially not while Garnett was a Celtic.

Much better

Ha, good point. Never thought much about it. Love the scans and you even made me laugh. Will have to pay attention more to these in the future. Maybe it's like one of those 7 degrees of separation.

Currently collecting A-Rod, Jeter, Cano, Mauer and Trout. I tend to be a fast shipper, work across the street from our post office.

The Malone and Garnett actually makes sense. They are both power forwards.

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

Yeah, it's one of those "iffy" ones in my opinion...I also saw a Bird Ray Allen both in celtics uniforms which I also think is "iffy" They never played together and they might not have even played against each other. If they did it was probably when ray was with the bucks.
This is another one that confuses me. Shaq in a miami heat uniform and they put a laker Jersey on the card...WTF???

They don't bother me too much if it is someone for my PC. But yeah not really sure how they come up with the combos. Probably put names in a hat and draw 2 at a time.

Here's some more bad:

Maybe TMac is as smoove as the Ice Man!

Some better ones:

I actually think the same position is one they use a lot. Malone/Garnett 2 of the best PF's.

ud had a ton of these random multi relic cards due to them trying to get rid of all their stock when they knew they were not going to be apart of the nba's license.

I agree, especially that set is aweful. This one bothers me a lot:

They played against each other 32 times in the regular season and 6 times in the Playoffs. Meanwhile, they are two of the greatest PFs of all-time.

I think those are justifiable reasons to put them together on the same card.

I think the card companies do this because of requests from collectors...not sure, but sounds like the only "logical" reasoning behind their stupidity.
