When I was younger and still a student, I just buy packs from the early to mid 90's products since I can't afford to buy boxes.
Now that I'm older and can afford to buy, I have bought boxes from current products but not from those old ones.

The 2009-10 Exquisite Collection was Upper Deck's last Exquisite release (for now at least) after Panini was able to grab hold of the NBA sports cards licensing monopoly.
In the product, Upper Deck bought back old Exquisite cards from the previous releases and have them signed by various players.
Redemption cards were then issued for these buybacks.

Photobucket has been of great help to us collectors.
With its ease of use and beautiful interface, we can upload pictures and scans of our trading cards.
In this world where face to face trading is a thing of the past and online trading is the norm, photobucket albums serve as virtual binders of our collection for others to see and browse.

In the tradition of "Hello World", this is my customary first post in this web site.
As an avid fan of the NBA, I have been collecting basketball trading cards since 1996.
I don't want to be redundant regarding how I happened to stumble into this hobby so I suggest you read my blog post titled My NBA Trading Cards Hobby on my old web site.
