Top 100 Cards of My Collection-#49 07-08 Ultimate Collection Ultimate Match-Ups Patch Michael Jordan/LeBron James

Well Scottie Pippen opened up a can of worms late last week insinuating that when it's all said and done LeBron James might go down as the greatest player of all time, yes even better than MJ himself. It started a debate that will really never be answered as everyone has their own opinions, from Wilt to Russell, MJ, Oscar Robertson, Magic, and even LeBron, everyone has their opinion on who is the best basketball player of all time. Myself, I gotta go with MJ hands down. I think this team could have pulled off a Boston like dynasty had Jordan not retired the first time around after the 1st three peat, instead those Bulls teams had to "settle" for 6 rings. There's no doubt that in today's game LeBron is the best basketball
player in the league, but better than MJ?? Only time will tell.
Which leads us to card #49 on the countdown. A quad patch card
featuring the two NBA heavyweights in question. This is a sweet patch
combo numbered to 25 (#25/25 to be exact) and has a couple of very nice
multi-colored Jordan patches. My only gripe and probably the main reason this card
doesn't rank a little higher, is the LeBron patches leave a lot to be desired. Single white colored
patches usually don't fly with me, but I couldn't resist cause of the MJ patches. I think this is one argument that we can all agree on, in this specific case MJ outshines LeBron.


  1. Holy pig snorts and bat fart violins! That's #49?

  2. Awesome card! Love those Jordan patches!
