Grab bag

grab bag n. Slang A miscellaneous collection.

So, I’ve been having a bit of an NBA card renaissance, what with ebay offering instant access to tons of cheap and relatively rare goodies.  Case in point: Hakeem Olajuwon’s second NBA card:


250 pesos, in near mint to mint condition, to my untrained eye.  Interesting discrepancy, this card actually shows Olajuwon having already played 3 years in the NBA, but this was the only the second card printed with him on it.

Steve Nash RCs, 2 for 120.  What a skinny fucker, and what’s up with the hockey outfit, eh (Yes I know he’s Canadian and that explains it all, I just thought it looked funny)?


The man whose beard led the Golden State Warriors past the number 1 seeded Dallas Mavericks in last year’s playoffs.  4 rookie cards for 140 pesos equals hey not bad.

I also got a grab bag of Glenn Robinson rookie cards and inserts for 150 bucks, none of which are worth even putting up here, despite the Big Dog’s athletic achievements.  You couldn’t buy a quarter pounder value meal with those cards, but what they hey, right?
