Upper Deck Conspiracy Theories
I bought a pack of basketball cards last night.
It contained the cards for:
Tracy McGrady (Flight Team Hologram in a Magic Jersey and Rockets Logo)
Kirk Snyder Rookie Scrapbook
As I flipped through the cards one by one, my girlish giggles continued to elevate. I don't ever recall laughing so hard when buying a pack of cards before. Perhaps its because I hadn't bought one in a while, or because I was drunk.
The crazy in me thinks that perhaps the Basketball Trading Card market has dried up, and Upper Deck has to "stack the deck" so to speak with the Freak Shows of the NBA. C'mon we're talking about getting Wang Zhizhi, Earl Boykins and Dunleavy in a pack of cards!
What are the odds. Where are the Pervis Ellison and Chris Gatling stacked packs that left all of us wanting so much more?
I rather think however, it has something to do with the world's greatest league with a cast of characters so dense, even the lame ones are interesting.
At work I won't put up pictures of my family, but I now have my Wang card in my picture frame.
Thank you, NBA. Thank you, Upper Deck.
