Basketball collectibles

Has anyone got any good basketball-related stuff they've collected over the years? Like tops or cards or signed posters, etc?

What's your favourite basketball related item?

What do you wish you had?

Is there anything you want to sell or trade for?

Yogee, i have a Jordan Rookie card aswell- they were selling as protocopies for $25.

Looks just like the real one but heres the trick....if you hold the 84 version there should be a fuzzy material feel to the back of the card.

That's a great (and funny) picture, but I'd be even more impressed if you could post a picture of Wilt Chamberlain's bedroom.

And just a little bit worried. :)

Found that photo here -- an NBA feature on players wearing masks...

"Wilt's bedroom that occupies the entire second floor in which the 72-square-foot bed is the most commanding feature. At the touch of one of the many electronic devices in the room, a triangular mirror above the bed rolls back enabling the Big Dipper to see the Big Dipper on a clear night."

Photo of the retractable triangular ceiling window:

Not only do I have a photo of Wilt Chamberlain's bedroom -- I can give you a virtual tour. :P

Ahh, the internet...

Of course, I'm not going to say how I happen to have the scoreboard in my possession - but I'd be willing to trade it for that mirror.

Signed cards of Moses Malone, James Worthy, Todd Lichti, Adrian Dantley, Kurt Rambis and Reggie Theus.

Michael Jordan cards in his #12 jersey against Orlando (his #23 was stolen that day).

But the big one is: a Terry Dozier redemption card from the 1990 (or 1991?) NBL "Best of Both Worlds" series, telling how Dozier scored six points in a game against the Lakers.
