Mail Day April 6: Michael Jordan 90's Inserts

This is one of my best Michael Jordan mails ever as I got two 90s insert cards that I really like.

I was able to pry these away from a collector at SCF, berlincards.

Got these last April 6 after a month of waiting.

My mails for January were pretty much varied (check out HERE and HERE).

For February, most of which I accumulated were cards of my favorite player, Shaquille O'Neal.

Another card has been added to my Kobe Bryant BGS 9.5 RC collection, the  96-97 Stadium Club Members Only 55 #52 FIN card.

Michael Jordan 1997-98 UD3 MJ3 Tribute Set

From my January 23 - 27 mail week is this three-card set from 1997-98 UD3.

In my opinion,  this is an underrated set.

Shaquille O'Neal 1998-99 SkyBox Molten Metal Fusion Titanium /250

While the design is not exactly original, the 1998-99 SkyBox Molten Metal Fusion is one of the nicest 90s inserts around.

The cards feature die cut technology where small holes are 'etched' into the card to form the portrait of the player featured. If I'm not mistaken, this was first used for the 95-96 Stadium Club Beam Team as seen in this mail month.

Mail Week January 23 - 27: Derrick Rose Graded RCs, Howard Patches, Shaq Parallels, etc.

The week of January 23 - 27 is great for me as I got a huge number of cards I need for my Shaquille O'Neal and Dwight Howard main PCs as well as for my Michael Jordan side PC.

Check out my mail week as I listed them per player.

Shaquille O'Neal 1992-93 Stadium Club Beam Team #21

I was able to snag the Member's Only version of Shaquille O'Neal's iconic Beam Team card from 1992-93 Stadium Club.

This is not inserted into packs as this was only available exclusively through the Topps Members Only Club or sold in complete factory set form for $199 with a total of 10,000 factory sets printed.

COMPLETED! Kobe Bryant Rookie Cards Checklist

Finally, 1 year and 6 months since my quest to acquire all Kobe Byant rookie cards last July 2010, I have now all 16 of his true base cards. I also have his SPx XRC (extended RC) as well as the two cards from Stadium Club which are not really RCs since they are inserts - but the product don't feature one.

Thanks to ty of the nbacardsph forum as his E-X2000 RC included in my January 17 mail day was the final piece to the puzzle. It was a long process but I was not in a hurry as I wanted to relish every card I acquired.

Mail Day January 17: Kobe Bryant E-X2000 RC, Derrick Rose RCs, etc.

This is my first significant mail day for 2012 and one of the largest trades I have done in a while. 

There are many trading forums but they should be renamed selling forums as most members are actually selling rather than trading. 

Anyway, I'm glad I was able to pull off this trade with ty of nbacardsph. Because of him, I have already acquired all of Kobe Bryant's true rookie cards.
