The Daily: 2006-07 Upper Deck Exquisite LaMarcus Aldridge Auto Patch RC
Things got a little crazy last night in San Antonio. It took the Spurs two overtimes to pull out a 154-147 win against the Oklahoma City Thunder.
LaMarcus Aldridge went off, scoring a career-high 56 points.
Here are two of them.
Aldridge threw it off the glass to himself 😳

Yes, it looks like Aldridge planned it that way all along.
It should be noted that Russell Westbrook had himself a game in the loss, netting 24 points, 24 assists and 13 rebounds. For fans of somewhat obscure stats and records, it set the mark for most assists in a triple-double.
Between Upper Deck and Topps, there are 32 LaMarcus Aldridge RCs in the Beckett database. Although several are on the high-end side and come with autographs, nothing comes close to Exquisite. It was the brand at the time for super-premium cards and there wasn’t really much else at its level.
