Smile Mail update!

I typically don't share maildays here, but I received these over the past few weeks and a few of them I really thought were cool so I decided I'd share with everyone.


I'm not sure what will be for sale and what will be out for grading yet ... so please keep that in mind

Thanks for looking! Here they are:


First off a nice 03-04 Exquisite card with a cool serial #:


^^^#25/25, last made!



Next up one of the coolest cards I've had (personally) ... maybe not value-wise but I just think it's really a cool card:




^^^#6/8 ... Lebron's jersey number!




This one is quite possibly one of the best designs/color schemes of any card set EVER:


^^^#/80




A nice MJ refractor:






One of Reggie Jackson's nicest rookie cards out!:




^^^#15/25, Jackson's jersey number!




Heat superstar rookie autograph 1/1! ... but not the guy from 03-04:


^^^#1/1




MJ Rare Gold:











And finally some Select Prizm Greens! I've been excited about this set, I think they look absolutely amazing ... and are extremely underrated!

Kidd is #05/10 (Jersey #)
Bosh is #01/10 (Jersey #)
Plumlee is #13/15 (Jersey #)
Drummond is #01/15 (Jersey #)

Here they are!:




























More mail soon, but wanted to give a fun update! Thanks for looking!

Awesome pickups, but is the gold in the Lebron card missing?

Didn't Reggie Jackson play for the Yankees, A's and Orioles?

I thought you hated the notion of select greens and being in promo packs? What gives?

No wonder you are so high on the select green.

Thanks guys!

Yep Reggie did play baseball .. but not THIS Reggie!


OJ & crazymj: Yeah I really like the cards to be honest ... I think they're extremely underrated. My logic is simply that they shouldn't be labeled as promo cards, just because they came from promo packs. I guess that logic will change if Panini releases a full checklist and says the greens are not part of the Select set, but these cards have no designation, physically, of being promo cards.

Either way, I don't mind what other's views are on them ... I think they look outstanding and a great design by Panini.

Am I the only one who love the Grant Hill card most?
I never own one of these cards even though I've seen them from time to time....is it Now or Future?

Thanks guys, the grant hill is really cool in person, a picture/scan can't/won't do justice!

The greens are even better in person too! Bill, you're stockpiling the d-roses!!

Is the Grant Hill card a "Now" or "Future" parallel? Sorry for asking but sometimes I get confused with both parallels.
