Random Wax: 2019-2020 Mosaic Basketball

 2019-2020 Mosaic Basketball:  Don't get excited.  This post has been gathering dust for some time. This green parallel was the highlight of a very strong pack. Luka Doncic is so exciting to watch.  He has amazing court vision and can play ball with the best of them.  He's definitely a top five player in the league right now and maybe top three.

This green parallel works really well for Tacko Fall and the Celtics green.   I really enjoy having Sir Charles on cards again.  I liked him as a player but I really enjoy him as an analyst. 
Nikola Jokic continues to get better and this year is he is #3 in the league in assists with just over nine a game.  Amazing.  Blake Griffin really fell off this year.  No idea what happened to him but I was counting on him as a late round find for my fantasy team.  That didn't end well...
I'm a huge Domantas Sabonis fan.  Loved his dad, Arvydas as well, who played for the Trail Blazers .  He's another of those big guys who has good hands and I expect he'll make the all-star team again this year.  He's also hitting the three really consistently now.  Anthony Davis finishes this pack on a high note.  Fun pull and pack.

    1. Thanks. Can't get enough of his cards. The colors on the inserts really make them stand out.

  2. Never saw these but got the base Tacko as a birthday present from a Database friend. Glad to have it, he's awesome.

  3. Saw another blog post a week or two ago that made me think of Arvydas. Wonder what his career numbers would look like had he come over to the NBA in his prime... because his numbers in his 30's were darn impressive.

    1. I know. Trail Blazer fans have always wondered too. He was scary good. A precursor to many of the European centers we see today.

  4. Wonderful cards. Wish I had a good way to get some modern basketball cheap. Bet I'm not the only one who feels that way.

    1. The hobby for many is tough. Same here. Stinks hoping to get lucky and find cards are retail. I got lucky with Mosaic last year at the local Wal-Mart so I parcel these posts out over time.
