Bonus Pack – 1994-95 Ultra 2 BK (in honor of the Miami Heat)

In honor of the end of the NBA season, I am ripping a couple packs of 1994-95 Ultra 2 basketball.  I have ripped one of these packs before, so I will skip the niceties (image of the pack, description of the set, insert lists, etc.).  Of course, I’m throwing in a bit of commentary along the way.

Cards

278 – Brad Lohaus
280 – Khalid Reeves

Two players sporting the home and away jerseys of the Miami Heat.

230 – Jason Kidd
264 – Lamond Murray

Two players who played for Cal when Cal dumped my beloved Duke Blue Devils in the 1993 NCAA Tournament.  A third key player for Cal in that game was Monty Buckley (I think).  I had forgotten that Kidd started with the Mavs early in his career.

1 – Rebounding King – Derrick Coleman
6 – Rebounding King – Hakeem Olajuwon

Both packs had an insert.  That’s pretty good since these are supposed to be inserted at a rate of 1:2.

Comments

There aren’t many people still in the league from when these cards were issued.  I’m sure there are others, but Kidd and Grant Hill (not in either pack) are the only two I can name.  Aside from the fact that I’m writing about basketball cards, I admit that this post really has nothing to do with the Heat’s title.  Regardless, this is the only basketball material I have on hand.  It will have to do.  So, congratulations Miami Heat.  Enjoy the fruits of your labor.
