What eBay Hath Wrought 65: My Giant


At some point during the process of getting my cards ready for sorting and cataloging, I bumped into this set of die-cut Stadium Club cards. Each card has either the team city or team name die-cut into the edge of the card, and once you get both cards for the given team the words fit together to spell out the full team name. I don't know who the other Washington Bullet is who matches up with Gheorghe Muresan, but that doesn't matter much. I wanted this card. I also wanted a Hakeem Olajuwon version of this card, but Topps decided to use Clyde Drexler and Charles Barkley to represent the Houston Rockets in this set. Boo!


Also included in this lot were some other Muresan cards. I am not too familiar with Stadium Club and the associated parallels, but a couple of these appear to belong to some sort of parallel set called Members Only. I will have to figure it out eventually when I put my Gheorghe Muresan cards into Zistle. For now it is enough to know that I have four new Muresan cards in my collection.

  1. It is pretty nice. They really went all-out in the crazy days of the 90s!
