Just wanted to share this SWEET replacement I received from UD the other day. I had a copy of the Rudy Fernandez/Rajon Rondo dual auto redemption, just like TJ. I picked it up for about $10. Well, UD shocked me with this PC treasure:

I love it. I absolutely love beating LA. There's no better feeling than that, and it happens so often. I especially love it when Kobe lets his team down. And today's game made me realize that I'm not really sure why we're trying to avoid the Lakers in the first round. We're guaranteed a playoff spot and, to be honest, the two teams I would want to play would be LA and Dallas. We've proven that we can win against both teams and in both cities. I would LOVE to knock out LA in the first round, which is a very real possibility. Plus, it'd give me an excuse (not that I need one) to go pick up one of the shirts you see above.
I also paid a visit to the local card shop down here today. I picked up several things, but there is one card in particular I want to touch on:
This is a base card from late 90s SPX. It looks fantastic and I haven't a clue why they don't use this type of stuff nowadays. The recent SPX releases have some nice looking base, but the majority of base sets are kind of bleh compared to this card. If you turn it, the head shot of Stoudamire looks as if he's turning his head...kinda creepy but very cool. Also, obviously, die cuts are awesome. Here are a few digital camera pics to capture the true beauty of the card:
