Combined Shipping Leads to Buying Stuff 5: Hakeem Olajuwon Prizm Relic

I am going to be away from my computer/cell phone for a couple of days, so I'm throwing out a couple of quick posts to fill time until I get back. Today's card comes from the lot of cards I started posting about yesterday. The seller had a variety of cards on sale from multiple sports, and I couldn't pass up this relic card featuring my favorite basketball player, Hakeem Olajuwon. It's from the On Hallowed Ground insert set in 2014-15 Panini Select Basketball. The relic swatch isn't all that exciting, but at least it's a colored bit of jersey and not a PWS (plain white swatch).

This is the Copper Prizm parallel of the card, and it is numbered # 36 / 49. I am surprised a little bit that I don't have more relics and autos of The Dream, because they are very plentiful and pretty cheap. Maybe that's the reason. It seems like there are about 40,000 of them on eBay all the time, so I pass them by in favor of bidding on other things that I feel like I might not see again. I did snag this one because of that combined shipping offer. At list price plus shipping I wouldn't have given it a second look, but at list price with combined shipping it was a reasonable deal for an addition to a somewhat neglected part of my collection.

  1. Looks like I lost my comment...(stupid computer), Great card, I've always loved Refractors and that continues to Panini's version. the design is great too. I wish I could get to the Hall of Fame.
