For my Kobe Bryant side PC, I don't intend to collect all his cards.
Only 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!]
A tall order for me is to collect Kobe Bryant autographed cards with one of each kind as listed here.
Not contented with my quest, I added another one: to collect all of his rookie cards graded BGS 9.5 or PSA 10. Those that are GEM MINT copies to be more specific.
This is my first one I got off eBay: a 96-97 Topps #138 RC graded BGS 9.5.
I'm hoping to get more although getting them nowadays is very hard as with the start of the 10-11 NBA Playoffs, Kobe Bryant's quest for his sixth championship ring has began.
