For February, most of which I accumulated were cards of my favorite player, Shaquille O'Neal.
Most of these are hard-to-find. As most of the player collectors who came to love the hobby in its heydays in the early to mid-90's as high school or college students, I have long wanted these cards. But since my financial capability is next to zero at those times, I never got the chance to add them to my PC. Until now.
Check them out.
1999-00 Fleer Mystique Feel the Game 1:120 - one of his earliest jersey cards
2000-01 Fleer Triple Crown Scoring Kings #d 043/100 - one of his earliest cards with a piece of ball
2000-01 Upper Deck Ovation A Piece of History 1:120 - one of his earliest cards with a piece of shoe
2003-04 SkyBox Autographics Jerseygraphics GOLD #d 08/50
2003-04 SkyBox Autographics Jerseygraphics #d 225/350
2003-04 Ultimate Collection Jerseys Dual #d 072/100
2004-05 E-XL Court Authentics Patches/Jerseys #d 34/35 - is this jersey-numbered since the game-used pieces are from his Lakers jersey where he wore the number 34 even though he is pictured as a Miami Heat?
2008-09 SP Rookie Threads SP Threads Dual Patch - this is my second copy
The two copies together:
2009-10 Classics Classic Confrontations Jerseys #d 142/199
I can now pair the card above with its patch (prime) version #d 14/25.
90s PARALLEL / INSERT
1997-98 Metal Universe Platinum Portraits 1:288 - the cards feature a matrix-etching the form a picture of the player's face. This is similar in design to my 1998-99 SkyBox Molten Metal Fusion Titanium /250
1996-97 Topps Finest Reprints Refractors 1:144
1996-97 Metal Molten Metal 1:180
1997-98 SkyBox Premium Premium Players 1:192
1998-99 Stadium Club Royal Court 1:24
1998-99 Hoops Rejectors #d 2440/2500 - serial numbering is so high but it is somewhat HARD TO FIND
1998-99 Stadium Club Triumvirate #T2B 1:24
1998-99 Stadium Club Triumvirate #T9A
1999-00 Fleer Focus Masterpiece Mania #d 149/300

1999-00 SkyBox APEX Jam Session
2000-01 Stadium Club Striking Distance
2000-01 Stadium Club Beam Team #d 382/500 - serial numbering is high but it is HARD TO FIND. One of the most beautiful early 00s insert cards without a piece of game-used or autograph in my opinion.
2001-02 Topps Chrome Mad Game Refractors 1:65
2003-04 E-X Essential Credentials Future #d 28/55
From Shaq's movie, Blue Chips and video game, Shaq-Fu.

I pretty much collect anything Shaq that I don't have yet. So, please let me know what you have.
Thanks for looking.
