Hooked on (Super)Sonics

Before getting to today's Santa Lot 20, I picked up another 16 baseball cards in a Listia win that I'll share here...


That foil Bowman card scans something fierce...but one I don't have so - excellent - same with the 1988 Topps Big Musselman.

The rest

Obviously neat to get the couple 1972 Topps cards including a Charlie Hough Rookie card, and a Cy Young winner Vida Blue. Other than the Mumphrey card having significant staining which you can see in the scan, good condition all around on these.


Just the one duplicate luckily with this group to, so that's another plus as well.

Now onto the Santa Lot 20 which is heavy on basketball today...


Moving on the 2004-05 Legends Classics set (up to 38% now) is always a good thing! Also - who could deny the 'stache of Lanny McDonald!

The rest

Just the one - lots of trade bait coming up below...

The rest:

Seem to have gotten a couple runs of cards in MVP include a number of Nets, Knicks and Supersonics. Patrick Ewing brings me back to some of the match ups with Jordan from the 90s - which Jordan I would say, dominated.

  1. Go Sonics! I wonder how many of the team cards you're missing from this post. I'd say you're at least missing Shawn Kemp.

    Hah, that Dale Ellis card is actually him in a Sonics uniform even though it says Magic.

    1. Yeah - always means a double take. It raises a good question to - do you collect it as a Magic card, Supersonic card, or up for either?
