When Kobe Bryant got his 5th championship ring last season, I decided to collect his cards.
I know it's virtually impossible to collect all his cards so I decided to focus on his rookie cards as well as his insert cards from his rookie year up to the 1998-99 NBA season.
[UPDATE January 19, 2012: Finally completed all of Kobe's RCs!]
His autographed cards as very expensive as well so I just made a small list of what I want.
I intend to collect one Kobe auto of each kind below:
1. wearing #8 jersey number - completed (2004-05 UD All-Star Lineup Signature Class)
2. wearing #24 jersey number - completed (2009-10 Crown Royale Majestic Signatures)
3. with piece of jersey - completed (2000-01 SPx Winning Materials Jersey/Warmup)
4. with piece of patch - still looking
5. exquisite card - still looking
6. auto focus (glass card) - still looking
I have already acquired #1, #2 and #3.
Please let me know if you have one of the others I need.
I can buy or you can check my photobucket for a possible trade.
