But things change. People change. I changed.
These days... I rarely pick up a basketball and I never watch any NBA games (except when I attend the occasional Warriors game). As for collecting... I'll pick up a basketball card every now and then.. but only if the price is right. It's pretty safe to say that basketball is my least favorite sport to collect.
However I recently took a trip down to Vegas to hang out at my parent's place. And while I was there... I decided to spend an afternoon flipping through my collection and scanning a bunch of cards for future posts. Among them were a handful that I had completely forgotten about... including three autographs of this year's MVP... Mr. Kevin Durant:

Durant has been a star since he arrived on the scene seven seasons ago. He's already four time scoring champion, five time all-star, and one of the most popular players in the league.

Which brings up the question... how the heck did I let these cards slip from my memory? Heck... I'm not even sure how I acquired them. Did I pull them from packs? Buy them? Trade for them?

I guess all that really matters is that I now know about them. And after a quick look on eBay... it's good to know that I have a few extra dollars if I ever need it. They're easily three of the higher end cards in my collection.
Today's question of the day...
What are some cool, forgotten cards you've stumbled across in your collection?
Happy Wednesday and sayonara!
