Dollar Tree Score!

I've been picking up quite a few of these 08-09 NBA Fleer packs at local Dollar Trees lately. Most of the time I just get 8 base cards, maybe an insert here and there, nothing too special. I really like the design though and am at least trying to get most of the Mavs and my other favorite players. This pack, however, did include something special...

game used KOBE! I really like the look of this card and it's got a purple swatch which is cool, the problem is, I can't stand the guy! I've never liked the Lakers except for a few individual players here and there, but I really don't like Kobe. I think he's a total doucher. So what to do with the card? I think I'm going to take it to the local card shop and see about trading it for a Dirk relic. I'm not sure what it's worth, but I aught to be able to get something pretty cool for it. That is, of course, if someone out there in blogger land doesn't have a better offer first. Let me know if you think you do. Later.


  1. Nice pull!! Relics are especially nice to get from a bargain pack!

    I don't particularly care for basketball, but if I had a relic I'd trade ya. I'm heading to my shop tomorrow, perhaps I'll peruse the relic bin and see what they have. Any other players/teams you'd like?? I know they have SOME basketball in the bin, but I never pay attention to who.

  2. I am interested in trading for the Kobe game used.

    I don't think I have a Dirk game used but would you do for a Pujols or Shaq game used?

    Anyways if you are interested send me an email

  3. Nice Kobe relic! I am trying to complete the 08-09 Fleer basketball set and was wondering if you have of the following cards to trade. 102, 111, 112, 115, 123, 128, 142, 148, 156, 162, 167, 188, 191, 193, 195. Email me at if you are interested in trading. Thanks!

  4. Priceless Pursuit - any of the players over to the right would be a possibility, though without seeing what you may grab first, I could already have it. I wouldn't want you to get stuck with something you don't really want yourself.
