Well Dirk was clearly not himself tonight, but he managed to struggle through a 101 degree fever and put up a pretty good game. Fortunately, his supporting cast showed up tonight and the Mavs managed to tie the series at 2 games each with the Heat. Hopefully, Dirk will be back to 100% by game 5.
Speaking of not 100%, I picked up a few Dirk playing cards, one from each of 4 different decks. That leaves me with about 98% to go for each set to get a complete deck.
This is what the backs look like. One of the sets commemorates the All Star game the year it was held in Phoenix. The other 3 are just regular sets. As far as I can tell, they are all Chinese decks.
Here you can see the fronts. While these aren't sports cards in the traditional sense, I like them because they are something different to add to the collection. It would be nice to eventually get full decks, but pretty expensive unless I can find whole decks for sale somewhere. At $2 per card, the cost would add up pretty quickly. Anyway, the Finals so far have been awesome, though I wish the Mavs would get up early and stay up for once. This come from behind business needs to stop. Go Mavs! Later.
