Hi all,

For all of the newer members or people who don't go in the basketball section - hello!

Matt here from near Wollongong NSW. Big fan of NBA since around 1991/92 when I came across NBA packs in newsagents, seen NBA highlights on the weekend and probably found Beckett or some NBA mags in the newsagents while trying to take a sneaky look at the adult mag section.....

I loved Shaq - pulled a Power Booster from some Topps packs at a machine that dispensed packs in a mall one day. My brother pulled a Grant Hill TSC First Day Issue from a newsagent pack - a HUGE card at that time. And my friends and I ordered a box of Collector's Choice to rip and got some cool cards from there too!

I eventuall seen this tall lanky guy, kind of crazy and obsessive about the game, like i was at the time, and I've been a fan ever since. His name was Kevin Garnett.

I had a collecting break late 90's when girls became more interesting than cards and for some reason, like a thousand other people here and around the world, once we get s*** in order we are drawn back into the world of sport and collecting. Very cool. I've been around here since mid 2009, seen a lot of ups and downs including the impact of facebook on forums around the world.

No stupid questions, it's a very different climate since the 90's, hell even since 5 years ago and even this year! Let's all help out here, not be dickheads and have a good time, it's only cardboard!

There's heaps of resources around so you don't get screwed in a bad deal and I'll be posting helpful links and podcasts even in the posts below. Or there's heaps of members around who will help out.

Cheers

Matt

I just managed to pick that guy up in an all time fantasy draft, is he any good? did he ever do much in his career?
What a wise decision that was Kiwi ! He should be a great puzzle piece for the fantasy team and with his widely renowned motivational skills he will likely give you a good shot at that fantasy title bro!

Cheers!

Next is for finding out values of your cards by checking current and sold listings.

Popular ones include 130point.com and sortsof.com. I think 130point is more user friendly.
