    1996 Topps Series 2 Hobby Basketball Factory Sealed Box. The 1996-97 NBA Draft Class is one of the greatest of all-time. This draft class contained Kobe Bryant, Steve Nash, Allen Iverson, Ray Allen, Stephon Marbury, Jermaine O'Neal, Derek Fisher, and Marcus Camby. Each of the aforementioned players has a rookie card in the set, and the possibility of obtaining one of these valuable rookie cards keeps intense interest in an unopened box of this set. The key card search for the set certainly involves Kobe Bryant, who tragically died in a helicopter crash in January of 2020 after playing 20 NBA seasons, all with the Los Angeles Lakers. Bryant's career accomplishments include averaging a lifetime 25.0 PPG, 18 All-Star Game selections, a MVP, two Finals MVPs, and a key role in five NBA championships.

    This Topps breakdown shows: 36 packs at 11 cards per pack for a total of 396 cards. For NBA 50th Anniversary Foil (110 card parallel set) at a ratio of 1:4 per pack. As for inserts, the Season's Best are 1:16, ProFiles are 1:8, and YouthQuake are 1:12.

    The hammer price for my Mantle card significantly exceeded my admittedly conservative estimations, and I couldn't be more pleased.
