Default Retro Flair Showcase inserts are beautiful...

Just took some pictures of the Flair Showcase inserts out of Retro with a flash and man, you'd be hard pressed to find a better looking card. Love these things. They don't show up very well on scans...but in hand --->

I agree, my favorite non-pmg insert in the set.

Truth...I see them shooting up in the future when people realize how great they look in hand. Might have to start hoarding

Amazing cards in hand! I think they knew what they were doing since they numbered it to /150 and they included 60 players... Awesome looking set, and I really think these are sleepers. Congrats on the pickups!

See it's funny, because that Jordan is terrible looking IMO but i'm picky on photography the longer i collect...... BUT I love the LeBron, like really love. It's so sick, it's like PERFECT looking in your pciture. Definitely a sick set, thanks for the nice pictures

Good looking cards, saw some at my local LCS.

The only thing really holding me back on 'truly' liking them is the lack of foil stamping like on the originals. Just makes them look cheaper, imo

That's literally the perfect picture man! Out of all of them I pulled candace parker...ha, cool just not** used to seeing a girl on a basketball card. You got the two best there. I just hated the base and rookie stuff in retro

Been there done that... good luck in your new chase(s) and hope you get good prices for these, as more and more people are collecting these you should do better than they were before.

Is it me or are they missing some sort of element from the original ones?
The "rave like" finish is all over the back, and not fitted to the image it seems?
i bought a real cheap one (rick barry) because i was curious about it..
original..

maybe im just ocding over it

The names being in gold foil and the rest of the fonts being embossed would have done wonders for these cards.

Everything else is on point.
