Default My nearly complete 97-98 UD game jersey set

After MANY years, I have finally completed (nearly) my 97-98 Upper Deck game jersey set. I have always loved this set, and remember wanting to pull one back when I was younger. I started buying them piece by piece and recently picked up the Barkley and the Penny. I am only missing the second version of the Grant Hill and the second Penny. Not sure if I will pick them up or just roll with the set as iss.

Very nice.
More into Skybox and Topps brands from the 90's
But if I were going for an Upper Deck set it would probably be this one
Great Job!

I came across this a few weeks ago and pulled the trigger. I am now ONE card away for my set (the blue Hardaway pictured above). If anyone has one I would be interested.

Wow! Kudos to a job well done. I remember back in the 90's the only time I see those are on Becket magazines.
Good luck getting the last one.
You will need lits of penny for it!
