So every card is a 1/1?

Great patches, but Ugly design. Kinda hard to beleive they would cut up these HOF jerseys being such a small company. They probably would make more money selling the jersey's individually.

Who knows

I actually like the design. And the company is probably much larger than you think it is. They've been making Sportkings cards since 2007 and other products for over 10 years. I don't know how many releases of various products they will put out this year, but I'm guessing it's in excess of 10.

LOL......... I didn't know I had such a convincing affect on you in the past where you would think I was trying to convince you now. HAHAHAHAHA

I don't care to convince you on anything! Just giving my opinion(taste in cards)... and like mwheeler said, if you're not bidding then anybody who does like them can get them much cheaper

Those cards are AMAZING! and putting a picture of the player would just mean they would need to cut the patches down to a smaller size. I don't think it's necessary to have a million photos of the same player lol it's almost like stalking in a sense Ok, maybe not that crazy... but really, having 100 cards of the same player and looking at that player over and over again? I mean what's the point? I can live with ONE card of any player to see a photo of them, and if the rest is GU or auto and there is no pictures then fine with me.

You're right though, to each their own.

These are great pieces - what people miss is that putting a picture of the player on them would require a contract and a license with that particular player - those fees would drive the prices of this product up quite a bit.

I am fine with how they look as I know that they are 100% authentic. I don't need a picture of Kevin Durant on the card to know what he looks like.

To be fair, it is a horse...

Horses don't get many cards so horse collectors are itching to get their fix.

Horse card or not, it's from Sportkings. That card doesn't have upper deck's name on it, nor Topps, nor Panini, nor MLB, NFL, NBA, or NHL.

You know what else collectors are itching to get? Authentic, game-used memorabilia that they don't have to question if it's real or not. More and more collectors are getting tired of the event worn materials and "relics" that are from no particular game, event or season.

Speaking of "being fair" that is.

Getting back on topic...

I picked up a few more Sportkings patch cards. The first post in this thread has been updated with several new scans!

Here are the most recent additions:
