I guess I'm just trying to fill the sports void right now as I've started watching a little bit of the NBA. Some nights I just flip on ESPN or load up ESPN on my Xbox 360 while I organize cards or blog about them. Some nights however I've stopped to watch the games (at least in spurts) and I've enjoyed them. I haven't really followed the NBA much since George Shin moved the Hornets out of Charlotte and down to New Orleans. I watch the ACC basketball games when I can, but watching the NBA just hasn't wowed me as much.
All that said I have enjoyed the few games I've watched along with the handful of Charlotte Bobcats games I've caught on the television. This somewhat renewed interest got me to looking for cheap cards of both Bobcats and Hornets online. Here are just a few that I've recently added to my very small basketball card collection.
There really isn't much to these die-cut cards, but for whatever reason I think their pretty cool.
I like the orange jerseys so any relic card with a piece of orange jersey appeals to me. The fact that I ended up getting this card for free was even better. There was a big crease running down the card just below the "H" in Heroes. I contacted the eBay seller and he promptly refunded my purchase price of $2.00. Nice to know there are still some good sellers on eBay.
Ah, LJ...whatever happened to you? Until Shinn gave you that big stupid contract everyone in Charlotte adored you. You were Muggsy's gentle giant. Then you went to New York and disappeared. I still remember peering across the street from my aunt's house in amazement that you lived right there on Lake Wylie.
