I obviously haven't seen every set, and I don't collect basketball at all, but from the cards I have seen in lots, this set seems to be one of the worst for keeping condition of the cards in great condition.
It has to be something with the gloss because I have found the cards stick together very easily and that, especially on the fronts of the cards, you get little white specs as part of the colours, especially the name/team border, chip off.
Today we have a chunk of the set and instead of splitting it up, just going to highlight the set a bit. There were another 70 or so cards which I would consider damaged enough I wouldn't trade but will give away - or what I call packing material in my summary.
Overall, a solid set, just a shame they don't seem to age well. I'd be scared to get a factory set as I would worry these would probably brick heavily causing significant damage to many of the cards. Maybe I am wrong...
