Default Question About This Magic Johnson Patch Card

I opened a bunch of basketball the last few days. In a box of 09-10 Classics, I pulled the Magic card below. It's a lighter color but it is definitely Pink and Gold.

Does anyone know where it comes from?

I immediately thought Breast Cancer Awareness but I couldn't find anything on it.

Magic Johnson 09-10 Classics Patch # 05/10




Let me know what you think or if you've ever seen it before. Thanks.

Ive had a Jerry west patch card with the same looking patch, I thought it was just the trimming on the arm and neck, but not sure now..

Hope it is not blood. Magic is HIV positive.

It's too uniformly colored.

I think it's supposed to be pink and was from a special (event?) uniform but I can't find any pictures from when that might have been.

Oh ok, the pic makes it look like a Gatorade stain, to me at least. Shoot, I dunno then, I dont ever recall the Lakers wearing pink unis back when he was on the team. Interesting to say the least.

I thought he beat HIV. You know, like that episode on South Park where they pump him with money. lol. But back to the card, I've never seen anything like that. Possibly washed or something and something bled onto the white. Just a dumb guess

Probably just a jersey that was washed with something else by some random equipment aid back in the day.

magic johnson was cured of HIV through a secret experimental stem cell therapy treatment.

Did this happen like within the past five years? Cuz I swore I was watching CNN news one night and along the bottom of the screen it said something along the lines of him no longer being positive and I was like wow! No one ever believed me though. Ha

if you type in magic johnson stem cell on google you will see the results. the media wont make a big deal about this as the treatment is extremely expensive as of now. Stem cells are the only possible way to be cured of this as links below say a german man was cured using a stem cell treatment. stem cell treatments will be a really big deal in 5 to 10 years

It's just the jersey being washed the colors bleeding over. Purple bleeding over to white would create a pinkish color on the white.

This is starting to be the universal answer to every single question on here. This board might as well be a straight statement forum with no questions allowed.
