My Favorite 150 Items in My Collection-#144 1992 Classic Draft Picks Shaquille O'Neal

Why I Like It: It was THE SHAQ CARD TO HAVE before his initial NBA Rookie Cards came out. I was 8 years old when Shaq entered in the league and it was my first experience with a player coming in the league with so much hype. People wanted everything and anything of Shaq and due to Classic's exclusive deal with Shaq this was Shaq's first card and it was very popular. As a little kid, I could never afford it. I did buy a couple packs of this stuff hoping to pull it but to no avail. My cousin got the complete set for Christmas that year and  I was beyond jealous. Such a cool simple card. A few years ago I finally bought one for a buck. I might have overpaid, but the memories alone were well worth it.

  1. I love this card. It has a lot of history, plus that's an awesome photo of Shaq. I feel bad for those who paid top dollar for it though... since I see these in bargain bins every time I go to a card show.

  2. I waited so long to get it because it's so cheap it was never worth winning on EBay because when you factor in shipping you end up paying 3 times what it's worth. When I finally found one for a buck with free shipping I said why not, lol.
