2008-09 Skybox Basketball

With the NBA basketball All-Star game fast approaching, we thought it was a good time to break open:

2008-09 Skybox Basketball

  • 10 cards/pack
  • 12 packs/box

The one thing I like about these cards is the design. there are some great action shots with the featured player in color and the background in black and white. It’s like the colorized version of The Wizard of Oz.

The other cool feature is the Close Ups insert, many featuring old school talent. We nabbed Jordan and Magic Johnson. No matter the context, it’s always fun to pull one of those out of the bunch.

Each box boasts three memorabilia cards and one autographed card. Our three memorabilia cards come in three different inserts:

  • Rookie Prevue: O.J. Mayo
  • One On One: LeBron James and Gilbert Arenas
  • Larger Than Life: Ray Allen

The autograph card:
Paraph Signatures: Alando Tucker

Nothing to blow your mind away here, but a decent basketball product all around.
