After all, once you've completed the Top 50, you'll probably start to upgrade your collection, e.g. seeking out the nicest card possible for each player. At least, that's what I and a number of other collectors did.
The Wilt and Maravich are certainly costly, but they'll be two of the centre-pieces of your collection.
Best of luck with your project. It'll be a lot of fun!

Something I would like to try again though as it would be nice to have an auto of Larry Bird, Magic, Shaq, etc. Nice stuff!

Obviously it was a little harder 10 years ago but it's a fun project to do. Good luck with your search. Are you going to put it in one large frame or display case?

So then he decided to add to the list and do a top 100 or top 150 of the best players in the NBA. He's got everyone he listed, but still missing the Maravich, lol. It's been a few years now. A lot of people try to do the top 50, even myself lol, but never complete it. I guess I just like collecting my Knickerbockers a lot more. You have to very committed to this and have the cash available. My friend's bought a lot of Press Pass Legends, hoping to pull the Maravich cut. 06'07 Chronology too even, but to no avail. He's stopped busting product in hopes to pull it, the boxes have gone up in price and that Chronology is much harder to find nowadays. But like I said, good luck!!
