Man, I'm jealous of you opening this. E-X was the absolute coolest product out in the mid-late 90's.

I remember busting a box for this for 75 bucks when it came out. Loved it. Nice hits.

Yep...the Credentials parallel actually had the word 'Credentials' in the top right corner. The Pippen is just the base version.

I wish I had the stones to drop $325 on a box!

looks like a pretty good box with the kobe rc, insert & jordan insert. if those had been another player it woulda been much worse, but for $325 that makes it a bad box since the kobe rc is $30, insert is $20, and the jordan insert is 80-100. i guess u can probably get 1/2 back or so.

If that Jordan Net Assett gets a 9.5 or a 10 he is looking at big bucks.

Thank you guys I was very excited for this box. I could not find it anywhere for less than 325 and that included shipping. Also the pippen is base but its crisp. Also pulled a grant hill, stackhouse & penny all base & an autographics of a no name.

My plan is to get all these graded. With that the jordan looks amazibg, edges and corners. Also if the kobe comes back 9.5 that will be the SAC of my pc. all in all i loved it. And would do it again!

How do these generally grade?

I wouldn't imagine all that well with the "windows" that could get scratched up...

I would definitely grade all that are gradeable. your jordan base in a 9.5 would be sickly huge, but it looks to have a print defect horizontally towards the bottom

I would say you crushed it! MJ and a kobe base rc, plus MJ and kobe inserts? Really can't reasonably ask for more

it's a very good break! you can hardly ask for more..maybe an autographics
but kobe and mj + pippen credentials! that's pretty good.

The base are very tough; I'm not sure about the inserts. I bought and sold a ton of raw Kobe's in the past and they all had visible flaws. I kept the best one I ever saw and it graded out at an 8.5 or 9 about 10 years ago from what I recall.
