On the Fourth Day of Cardmas, My Mistress Gave To Me...

4 Hopping Hoopsters,

3 Boring Bowmans,
2 Chromey Footballs,
And A Value Pack of Topps Chrome.

First, 2008-09 Topps Treasures:

Stockton is the only thing awesome about that pack.  Not very exciting cards.

Now, the 2005 Press Pass:

Wayne Simien: Won a Championship with the Heat, then went to Spain, then retired.  Chris Thomas: Never played in the NBA.  Julius Hodge (Blue parallel):3 years with Nuggets/Bucks, then a bunch of years in Australia.  Charlie Villanueva: A true NBA player!!! with the Pistons.  The Press Pass Old School inserts are always awesome.

Next: 2007-08 Stadium Club.

D-Wade makes another appearance.  The best card in the pack was this:

It's a great, great photo and a 1st Day Issue #0537/1999.

Moving on to the best pack, 2008-09 Topps Chrome:

Certainly you are wondering how Brandan Wright, Luke Walton, and Kurt Thomas make up the best pack...well, they do because of this guy:

Jerry West Xfractor #239/288.  I love the crowd fading into black.  Any Lakers fans need this card?

I'll gladly send you a SASE for that Julius Hodge'll fit into my NC State collection nicely.
