Set: 1999-00 Upper Deck Ovation

Card: #47 Chris Webber


“ I liked the Ovation brand because it always featured texture/embossing. The sides here are made to feel like a basketball. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Love the leathery feel to these, but wonder how they'll last over time. ” -Sportzcommish

“ I like this set. The surface feels like a basketball. ” -switzr1

“ Hope he's not trying to call a timeout. SO COLD! ” -carthage44

“ Chris Webber, I forgive you (and Jalen Rose). I attended the University of Michigan. During grad school, the Fab Five arrived on campus. I admit that I was skeptical of them but grew to love their brashness. Then came the Final versus UNC. For the longest time, I blamed Chris Webber the loss, but also Jalen Rose. Webber did travel then called a non-existent time out. I blame Rose because after Webber got the rebound, Jalen should have take the ball out of Chris' hands and dribbled up the court because that is what point guards do. I thought Jalen wasn't there to do that because he was at the other end of the court waiting to score the winning basket. Or so I thought. Then I saw the tape recently. Jalen was there for the ball. Webber failed to give it to him, and thought people on the bench were calling for a time out. Chris Webber was 19 YEARS OLD. He messed up, but he was 19. I messed up at 19 and most of us do but never in such a public way. I forgive you. Much Love. ” -cjjt

“ I both like and hate the Ovation designs. It is real cool they use the ball background and in some years textured the cards to copy the feel of that sport's ball. Other than that the design is just plain dull. I see some will be upset with the back using just one photo. ” -captkirk42

“ The Ovation baseball designs worked well with the ball seams on the front, but the concept doesn't translation well to basketball. ” -olerud363

“ great looking card but the basketball was too much IMHO ” -parsley24

“ Fleer did a better ball background in the 1994-95 NBA All Stars insert set. No ovation here. On second look, the card is plain ugly. ” -NJDevils

“ Meh. I did like the football and baseball versions so I suppose if you're a basketball collector, it's probably a card you like. ” -IndyBean17

“ The leather background is cool, but what is the deal with the wider of the two rectangles behind CWebb? Is there something in there that didn't scan well? Also I find the name too small for my liking. ” -kents_stuff

“ I like this even though it is a lot of space dedicated to the basketball. If the basketball portion of this card had a leathery grooved surface that felt like the ball, this would be cooler. I am unfamiliar with this card, so I am not sure if it does or not. ” -muskie027
