I DID IT! I landed probably the toughest card off from my Want List up til now. A card that is both rare and a piece of sport card history. I landed the first ever produced Game Jersey card. I FINALLY landed a 1996 Upper Deck Game Jersey Card. On an even bigger note, I landed it for under $25.
Now the player on the card isn't the best off the checklist, actually he is the worst, but that isn't the principle of it. I now own a piece of cardboard history. The very first jersey card. The card that fell at an incredible 1:2600 packs. The one that has eluded me, especially because of the price it cost. But, now it's mine. I got an eBay steal and it's mine. My patience of waiting on the card to end paid off.
I hope you guys enjoy my celebration moment as much as I do. Here it is in all it's glory! Yes, even though it's Rashaan Salaam!
Back of the card. I like how it actually states..THE FIRST EVER game worn jersey card....just awesome.
I still am in awe that I was able to pick up one of these. My hands were shaking when it arrived in the mail. I know many 90's collectors who I will be the envy of over this card.
So I gotta ask, do you envy me over this card? What are your thoughts on this card? Do you consider it a piece of cardboard history? Let's hear it!
