All the Smarts and basketball cards I got for Christmas came from a card shop in North Attleboro, Ma. My Dad found a bunch of cool stuff there but I guess when he mentioned Michael Bishop the guy was most excited of all. I mean Massachusetts card shop, former local hyped QB, they gotta have something right? And they definitely did, which starts with this very cool post her of two of my favorite cards from all of Christmas!
The first card seemed pretty normal to me at first...I thought it was Michael Bishop's Crown Royale base card. Looks like this:
Well...it's not that one haha, like that Smart I posted a little while back, this card's one of those Pacific cards that were held back for replacements and then released when Pacific dropped out of the hobby. That said it's still a wicked nice get and I LOVE the look of it. The Crown cards are always neat,and this one's especially golden especially the box down at the bottom where the name goes.
Here's the back:
Now I thought that Crown card might be super rare and it wasn't, but it still rules. This next card though...I thought it might be super rare and it is. It's Bishop's Contenders Power Blue parallel, which is /50:
The back is just like the Speed Red, only it's Power Blue and numbered lower. Oooh:
