The Daily: 2008-09 Upper Deck Exquisite Derrick Rose
It’s okay if Cher’s “If I Could Turn Back Time” is running through your head today. That’s exactly what Derrick Rose did last night, making a return to his MVP form from a few years ago. He set a career high with 50 points against the Utah Jazz.
But things changed for Rose. Injuries got him and he missed a lot of time. Even when he was back, it was plain to see that we weren’t watching the same player who won the 2011 NBA MVP Award. At least until last night.
Even with the struggles of the past few years, the Derrick Rose Exquisite RC is one of the key cards of the millennium’s first decade. It’s not nearly the same caliber but that’s understandable. Whether it’s one night or the beginning of a renaissance for Rose remains to be seen, but it’s great to see him back.
The Daily highlights a key player or personality in the world of sports or collecting from the past 24 hours along with one of their key cards.
