It was just for the scan that I put it in the binder. The Kobe´s and Jordan´s are in one touch magnet holders. All the rest of the cards are in soft sleeves and nine pocket packes safely stored. I have some cards since 1997 and nothing ever happened to them when I stored them this way.

It was actually the last card that was the hardest to obtain, Reggie Miller Row 2. It popped up on ebay 6 months ago, but I lost the auction. This time I got it coincidentally, from a very nice guy who got the card for me.The funny Thing is that it showed up on ebay again, exactly the day when i got mine.
I think that for the last 5 cards it took me around one and a half year.

Any thoughts on a new project?

This is awesome. I remember how much I loved this stuff as a kid. Between this and emotion were my all time favorites. I pulled a Mookie Blaylock legacy back in the day and loved it.

Great job

Congratulations! One of the best looking base sets out there.
This has alot of nostalgic feelings seeing them.
I have only the players I wanted. Anyway, sweet success!
Congratulations. The late 90's are definitely awesome.
