Mavs for Grizz

Know what you do when you've got too many Grizzlies in the house? You send 'em to Nick, The Basketball Card Pro. If you do that you'll get Mavericks in return, well, at least I did. I don't really know what you'll get. Check 'em out.

Here we have a couple Dirks, Shawn Marion posing as a Raptor and the Mormon Mantis himself Shawn Bradley. Wonder what he's up to these days?

Next up is a Certified Kidd and 3 Rookies and Stars none of which are actually rookies, but they are stars so I guess the theme fits. Jet would probably only be considered a semi-star, but he fits in well here in Dallas, at least until they let Roddy B loose.

The last 2 cards are Dirk inserts that I didn't already have. The first one features him in "Honey, I Shrunk the Kids" mode next to a giant blue shoe. The second one is from a set called Road To The NBA which doesn't really make much sense. The card already shows Dirk in the NBA and several years into his career at that. Seems more like a rookie subset to me, but what do I know. Thanks for the cards Nick! The rest of you remember to send him your unwanted Grizzlies, you might get something much better. Later.


  1. In 1993, I bought tickets to a Bulls 76ers exhibition game. I wanted to see Jordan. A couple days after I bought the tickets Jordan retired. I got to see that Bradley was not very good. He got drafted number 2 even though he did not play college basketball in 2 years.

  2. No Doubt, that Victory Bradley card is the best out of the lot. Awesomeness!!!
