That 90's Card: 1998-1999 Upper Deck Black Diamond Dikembe Mutombo

Shiny. Micro-etched. Parallels. Everything about Black Diamond I enjoyed.

I think my favorite part about Black Diamond was chasing the Diamond Parallels in packs. This particular card is just a base with a single diamond. You can tell this by the one diamond above Dikembe on the left side. The chase for these parallels goes all the way up to quad diamonds. Each level of diamonds also had a different color of etching so it was never too hard to spot in packs when you had pulled one. Especially a bigger one such as gold or emerald for triple and quad diamonds.
