Described as being about 6" x 8", at least six are known:
Here is a closeup of the Elton Brand card. More on him in a second:
OK, 2001 but is it 2000-01, or 2001-02. Well thanks to Mr. Brand, who played his last game with the Bulls in the spring of 2001, we know it's the former.
So what else do we know? Scott describes that he found the cards behind a trash can at a Washington Wizards game, which makes it seem like they were considered for a promotion but discarded for some reason. I'm not sure how many he had but no matter, this is a rare one as none of my go to guys for basketball know what they are and I can't find them in any of my guides.
Any thoughts out there kids?! I'm dubbing these 2000-01 Topps Giant Basketball for now.
I'm primarily an NBA collector,and Elton is my all-time favorite player...I've never heard of these before. Based on the blank back and lack of foil I would guess they were a promotional issue, but it's just a guess.
