The world's most trusted source in collecting

If my memory serves, these are the first insert cards with the odds of over 1:10 that I pulled from packs. I was merely a student at that time, and these cards are already considered "hits" by my standard at that time. Unfortunately, I left behind the original cards that I pulled when I immigrated to the US.
With some spare money to spend recently, I decided to pick up these cards again. The two cards above are the ones that I just bought not too long ago.
The card on the left hand side is from the 1996-97 NBA Hoops "Hot List" insert set (20 cards in total), with stated odds of 1:48 from hobby packs only.
The card on the right hand side is from the 1996-97 NBA Hoops "Fly With" insert set (10 cards in total), with stated odds of 1:24 from retail packs only.
They are not expensive at all, and they are not serial-numbered, but words can't describe how I love their acetate design.
And yes, these cards made me even more biased toward the 90's cards and inserts.
With that being said, do you guys have similar experience?
