The Mike James Collection (Yes, all three plus of them)

Mike James (and Mike James, and Mike James): 65/369 cards (15.4% total) + 1 Custom

Once again, it all starts with video games.  When we weren't playing Madden or Fifa, my brothers and I played NBA video games, and I was always the scrappy PG passing off to my brothers.  Many times I picked Tyronn Lue, who I've collected before and will probably collect again.  His backup, however, was typically Mike James, former streetballer and three point specialist:

Much later on, I played fantasy football and found a new Mike James.  He was a RB for the Buccaneers, and though their backfield was crowded, he was insanely talented and I found myself rooting for him and rostering him:

One day, a few months ago, I pondered supercollecting these two guys and calling it the Mike James collection.  I mentioned it to Dennis of the Too Many blogs, and he said "Would you include the baseball player too?"  I said, "There's a baseball player?"  And what do you know, there was!

And it all just seemed too perfect - one basketball player, one football player, and one baseball player, and no one else (Well I've since found out there was a minor league pitcher from 2004-2009 with one card, and another Mike James in the CFL in 1995, along as 11 hockey cards across three players, so there are a few other guys to chase too).

And so the Mike James Collection was born.

Listed below are all of the Mike James cards I have, by year, with sports mixed together.  I've scanned every card I have for you to see.  If you have something that isn't here, I need it, and we need to make a deal!
