The rarest cards you've never heard of and don't care about

The rarest cards you've never heard of and don't care about
Since beginning my collection in 1996, I have seen exactly ONE copy of each of the redeemed version of these redemption cards. I pictured the Wilkins "scoring" card since he was more of a scorer than a rebounder or distributor. I think I picked these up about 7-8 years ago from an Isiah Thomas collector. Why have these cards never gotten any attention from the hobby?

RE: The rarest cards you've never heard of and don't care about
I would agree with the Bleachers....and for them not having a complete checklist of what all was produced either. There are a ton more of those cards that what is actually indexed. Seemed like they should have gotten more love in the hobby and collector world. Almost treated as Broder cards in some circles.
I would say any of the SGA (stadium give-away) sheets, Team Night sheets, and food cards (McD's, bread, Yogurt, Handi-Snacks, pizza) don't get that recognition either.

dleifriaf, I'm laughing with you. I'd never heard of those cards and I don't care because I mainly collect Jordan. Is there a D. Robinson from this set?

RE: The rarest cards you've never heard of and don't care about
The player that led Dream Team II in either of these categories could have that specific card redeemed by the collector for a 14-card set of that category. Kevin Johnson's Assists card and Shaquille O'Neal's Rebounds and Scoring cards qualified as the three exchange cards. Apparently, nobody bothered redeeming these cards.

Redeemed and Unredeemed versions of the Assists, Rebounds, and Scoring cards exist for each of these players (so six cards total for each player). The redeemed sets are IMPOSSIBLE to find.

That I don't yet. I've been asked many many times...but I've been hiding I guess.
Maybe a New Years Resolution for me to get the photos taken...15000+ Jordans might take some time Wink

RE: The rarest cards you've never heard of and don't care about
I was more interested in the Stockton/Malone anyway!
Jordan is in nearly every set anyone ever makes

If the others make it into a set Clyde generally would aswell
