What's wrong with Manute Bol? Greatest shot blocker of all time, very popular not only within the league but off the court as well, did a lot of charitable works and is now deceased, so his cards retain some decent value.

Amazing human being too, I kinda like Panini making cards of random players from back in the day. Manute Bol had his moments, he had his fans and his collectors. I think its kinda cool

Topps made Bol autos too. While Panini do sometimes use odd/repetitive players, I don't think there's anything wrong with using Bol.

I know what the TS is saying. They are using guys that we haven't seen before or were lower end players even during their time.

Hell, I collected the past and present elusive auto set and that had people I had never even heard of.

BUT-- It was cool to see someone new besides getting a jason richardson or corey maggette for the 7 millionith time. Also I've had enough kelly trapuka while we are at it.

Clearly a generational gap in this thread....I'd love a Bol auto or patch.

Love to get 1 or 2 Bol's patch but don't over kill it with scrub player's from the 80's and 90's. Don't mind making some scrub ssp so when you do pull a B.J Armstrong you be Happy as #@#@#@#@.

Wow. There is nothing wrong with manute bol who is a great humanitarian off the court. While on the court he is very famous amongst collectors.

Yeah, Bol is nice add, didn't know he had some certified autos from back in the day. Show them off off if you have any.

I'd rather get a scrub from an old school player than a newer one...I'm guessing no current scrub ever killed a lion with a spear.....I like that Panini is trying to get some new player into their jersey cards

They also have Reggie Lewis in the same set. They had a couple GU cards of his in some products a few years ago, so they are using him sparingly as well.

What would be awesome is if they were to get Drazen Petrovic GU in some future products.
