If you guys saw my last thread, you would have seen that after 15 years of baseball/football collecting i was starting the basketball part of the hobby. being a celtics/uconn fan, this card is the perfect start to my new pc!!! spent a little more than i planned but in the end i am very happy!

On card auto in silver sharpie, numbered /35!!!!

First off, Welcome to the basketball card world!

That is a very pretty card to start off with, and super clean auto too, very nice. Hope to see your future Celtics pickups. I have a side pc of Celtics myself.... as well as Lakers haha

whoa that is nice, i will defiantly think about it. i defiantly would want a n ice KG auto in the future! I was perusing the ebay completed listings when i found this card, iot have to be by far one of the sickest basketball cards i have seen, especially for a Celtics fan, it is a newer product so odds are they all haven't been pulled yet, but i hope one day i can stumble across one

Yeah, that's nice.

2011-12 Exquisite isn't very popular with collectors because it features players in college (rather than NBA) jerseys. However, as a result, some nice cards can be had for fair prices. For example, that Bird/Russell duel auto was an absolute steal for $185.

I'd like to get a duel of those two players but, for now, I'll make do with these two matching cards:
