Default Mailday. Lebron. Russell Gold. Kareem Exquisite. Durant. Wojo

Pretty excited about the stuff I recently picked up. Here are the goods.

Im a huge Duke fan and growing up Wojo was my favorite player. I found his only card and sent it off to get signed. Go Duke


Found this Durant for cheap and sent it off to get slabbed. It doesnt seem that hard to get on card sigs. Someone please tell Panini that.


Lebron Virtuoso. I like it.


Kareem Numbers Pieces. I think I got as many as I will ever have from this set. I can never justify keeping the MJ or Lebron for what they are worth. I love the vintage patches on these.


This is my favorite card. 2000 Legends are either my first or second favorite set of all time. The Golds hardly ever show up. In my opinion, this is the best Russell out there.

Damn, so it was you who bought the Russell on eBay? I wanted that but spent a small fortune on a Russell card the day before, so I couldn't justify the price... even though, like you said, it's one of the very best Russell cards out there. It looks gorgeous.

Meanwhile, that Kareem is just incredible. It'll go so well with your existing cards from that set.

We need a 'top 10 cards' thread so that I can see what you've got. Your top 10 must be insane.

I'm waiting until I receive it in person before showing it off or starting a top 10 thread In the meantime, I've just taken someone else's card and put it in my bucket so that I can see what it will look like when it arrives

Just out of curiosity do you mind PMing me the address you sent the Wojo to get signed? I would love to get an autograph of him for my Duke PC.

Golf-pm sent (if you google duke basketball address it will pop up)

Thanks everyone for the comments.

Not sure why all the hate towards Wojo. I mean all duke does is win games and graduate players

He was not only my role model on the basketball court, but also the type of man I wanted to be when I grew up.

He also grew up around the same area I did and I personally know his sister (coached Girls Lacrosse at my high school)

Definitely a legend in my mind! I'll have to pick one of those up as well and get him to sign it, it looks awesome!

Glad to see someone else looked up to him. He was the reason I chose to wear #12 starting in middle school then onto hs. I loved the intensity that he played with

Awesome Russell from my favorite set of all time and prob one of his best and hardest to find. The Kareem is amazing as well and has that old school look.

He never even made a Final Four. At Duke! Of course in 1995 they had a losing record with Wojo.

Then they lost to East Michigan by 15 the following year.
Then they lost to #10 Providence by 11 the following year.
Then as a #1 seed, they finally won more than 1 game in the Tourney in 4 years, but still didn't advance out of their region.

Meanwhile, the Heels made the FF in 1995, 1997, 1998 those years.


The rest of the cards are awesome though!
