  3. paulmbanks says

    the luvabull Shannon. thats her name is off-the-charts gorgeous. and smart. a red eye feature mentioned that she was working towards her Phd at depaul in sociology

  4. Banks must love the Eric Gordon hating

  5. Cano's Cards says

    Ben Gordon listed as a superstar is a VERY loose interpretation…

    his Fleer Ultra rookie card keeps going down in value

  6. paulmbanks says

    I’m starting to hate Ben Gordon as much as Eric Gordon. maybe he’ll be better with Larry Hughes injured. there are not enough shots and balls to go around in that backcourt.

    What’s my Harold Miner Fleer Rookie Sensations card worth these days?
