Hitting the motherload

Last weekend I was cruising around the mall, and I happened to stumble across a this sports memorabilia display that had all sorts of fun stuff: helmets, bats, jerseys, pictures, and most importantly for someone on a college budget, sports cards.  As I was browsing through the selection, I found lots of great cards that brought back great memories from my childhood.  I got a few cards of some of the players that I really enjoyed from that era, guys like Gary Payton, Penny Hardaway, Glen Rice, Nick Van Exel, Larry Johnson, Shawn Kemp, and Eddie Jones (no Jordan, those were too expensive).

While those cards brought back good memories of my childhood, the cards that I was really looking for were the Bullets cards.  Unfortunately, the card dealers were actually trying to make a profit, so no luck finding any Ledell Eackles or John Williams cards, but they did have a nice selection of Chris Webber and Juwan Howard cards available.  They all had their charm, but I think this Juwan Howard card takes the cake:


After the jump, you can check out the back of the card, which just might be as priceless as the front.


As we get closer and closer to the draft, remember this card when people try to compare draft picks to all-time greats.
