A Moving Discovery (Part IV) -- USA Basketball

The third and final mini-set that I found in my card album is definitely my favorite of the three.  Large flag background, shiny gold lettering, and horizontal card design, what's not to like about this 1993-94 Fleer Ultra USA Basketball team collection? 

These players came together to become the US National team that would bring home gold at the 1994 FIBA World Championship. 





The Shaq card is the oddball of the set.  It is numbered M2 while the rest of the card are numbered 361-372.  It also appears that there was a team card available, which I may need to track down eventually to round out the set.

All in all, it was great to stumble into this card album and these great cards from my youth.

Finally a set I remember... great bunch of cards. The Shaq was a redemption card (along with the Reggie Miller and team photo).
