The majority of my posts are about cards from either the late 80's or early 90's. This is when my foundation of card collecting started. I didn't care what sport it was, packs were being opened.
After learning about Drazen Petrovic years ago I took big interest in Petro. I really wasn't into cards much during that time. After coming back to the card world 3 or so years ago I just assumed that since I collected like crazy back when Drazen played, I would surely have some of his cards. In all the time I've searched, I've come across zero. How could I see his arguably best performance ever (dropping 40 on the Cavs in a playoff game) and never have a basketball card of his?
This wasn't right and I was about to make sure I had some Petrovic cards. I made the situation right last weekend.
Drazen Petrovic collection is up to 2.
Upper Deck 93. Pretty wild to think this would have been his last card. Cutting in the lane against Dallas.
Score 91. His first year with New Jersey. So far, this is my favorite card I own, depicting his great jump shot.
One day, I intend on visiting Croatia to see Sibenik (where he grew up) and Zagreb where his memorial center is located.
