“ He is still better than his son. ” -carthage44

“ Trademark move and no "UTEP, two step"? great photography in the design though. ” -parsley24

“ An OK set. Except the cards of guys in the USA team jerseys with no identification of which team they normally play on. ” -captkirk42

“ A unique design that breaks the rectangular banner mold with the horsesho-shaped one. I'd make the USA in red, white, and blue, though. ” -Sportzcommish

“ I like this card. I liked this set. Hardaway even spent part of a season with the Pacers late in his career. I guess I technically liked the base set, and this is a gold parallel that I didn't remember even existing, but I still like the look of it. ” -switzr1

“ Skybox had a good run. Really fun player to watch and that was a great Warriors team back in the day. Surprised they never made it to a Finals. ” -muskie027

I missed writing about this one! How, I have no idea. I didn't get to fully appreciate this set, as the USA team it commemerates was done and over before I discovered the sport. The set was issued before the tournament so no action photos from it could be included.

These parallels are quite tough to find. I think they may have fallen one per box. I believe I only have one, a Magic Johnson card.

My goal is to get at least one card from every person with an NBA, NASCAR or NHL card.

I loved Tim Hardaway.  Run T.M.C., the killer crossover, and the Nike ads with Spike Lee - "I got skills", "Recycle that, baby".  Classic 90s hoops.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tmYP4J0Viww
