My Favorite 150 Items in My Collection-#140 1992-93 Fleer Slam Dunk Shaquille O'Neal

Why I Like It: It's the first Shaq card I ever pulled. For me I always look fondly back on Shaq-mania. As I've stated before, it was my first experience with rookie that had so much hype and promise. Being a kid, I basically knew the real good stuff I'd never be afford, and my only real way to obtain Shaq cards was pulling them the old fashioned way. This isn't even Shaq's true RC (which I would pull at a later date as well) but it's the first Shaq card I pulled and I was beyond excited to pull it. It's funny how recently, with selling the majority of my collection, it was so easy to not blink and sell autograph cards of Sandy Koufax, Walter Payton, George Mikan, etc..but this card which would probably bring in 25 cents on a good day, I would never be able to part with. That's nostalgic sentimental value for ya!
