Sometimes if I am buying a couple things from an eBay seller, I will search their listings for the names of several players I collect, just to see what they've got. Usually I don't find much, but every so often I will come across something I want. That was the case with this card. The main purchase here was a couple of UFC cards (the Cat Zingano and Rafael Dos Anjos quad relics in this post), but I picked up a nice Hakeem Olajuwon to go along with them.
This relic card of The Dream comes from 2017-17 Panini Court Kings. It's part of the Vintage Materials insert set. I believe this is the base version. I don't add to my Olajuwon collection all that often, so it was nice to come across this nice-looking relic card. I probably wouldn't have purchased it alone with the cost of shipping, but splitting the shipping three ways made it a better proposition for me.
It is serially-numbered, with this being copy # 132 / 149. The other parallels are # / 25 and # 1 / 1. I doubt I will be adding them anytime soon. I like any card that brings up the Rockets' two Championship seasons. They are one of the best teams in the NBA right now, but there are some really good teams at the very top and I don't know if James Harden + the other guys can beat any of the super teams out there across a 7-game series, let alone a couple of them in a row.
