Default Show-off your Credentials, PMGs and other rare 1990s inserts

Having sold off about half my cards this weekend, I thought I'd reward myself with a cheap 1990s insert card

I've never owned any of the famous inserts (Credentials, PMGs, etc) and, living in the UK, I've never even seen any in person. Therefore, I figured I'd buy the card below so that I can get a feel for what these cards are like.

I did the same thing a year or two ago when I'd never owned an Exquisite Enshrinements auto, so I bought a cheap Chauncey Billups card and was blown away when I received it. It therefore helped me justify buying a Bill Russell card from the same set.

In other words, I like to 'try before I buy' Maybe one day, after my house move and wedding (both in August - gulp!), I will buy some inserts.

I'd really like to see other peoples rare and high-end 1990s inserts... even if the player wasn't a household name!

Sorry to hear you sold half you stuff off. Atleast it's for a good cause, good luck with the move and the wedding!

Ok I never was fortunate enough to pick up any PMGs, but these are some of my favorite rarer 90's stuff. Not exactly high end because of the players I PC but still nice!

I'll post pics of my 3 fav inserts & parallel sets of the 90's when coming back home:

- 2000-2001 Ultimate Victory Parallel version #ed to 100
- 1997-1998 Hoops High Voltage 500 #ed to 500
- 1998-1999 Ionix Reciprocal RC #ed to 100

But yes, Credentials are nice too

This is a great thread, some of my favorite cards are showing up! I have these two that are #'d less /100 or less. I also have a 1998 Black Diamond Quad Diamond /100, but I just got it and it hasn't shown up yet. I also have a bunch of stuff /150 and /200.

Love this thread as 90's inserts are by far my favorite! Unfortunately I don't think I have anything worthy in Basketball for this thread (similar sets in football are another story). Hope to see more and more eye candy in here!

These are my only two higher-end basketball inserts; two of my absolute favorite cards though.

Some unbelievable cards in this thread.

hegotgame15 has got a nasty MJ collection.

jeebus_86, I love those Kobes. One day I hope to own a Kobe PMG.

Thanks to all of you for posting - I've loved looking at everyone's rare inserts, no matter who the player is.

Yeah, everytime a thread comes up like this on a forum he just struts in and drops jaws. It never gets old though.
