Contest/Giveaway: Can You Guess The #1 Card In My Top 25 Count Down?

Over the past couple months, I've been conducting a Top 25 PC Countdown. I've gone from #25 to #2 and am finally down to my favorite card in my entire collection. If you've been following the countdown, I'm sure you've noticed a pattern. I'm a huge fan of 90's inserts, but can you guess what my favorite PC card is?

To celebrate the conclusion of the countdown and giveaway some of the cards Panini recently sent me, I thought it'd be fun to giveaway some Donruss Rated Rookie cards and a Tyreke Evans Production Line jersey card. Here's what you need to do to enter:

Contest Rules:
  • You must be a follower of Hoopography and/or the Hoopography Facebook page
  • You must give the year, make and name of the card. Example: 1996 Topps Finest Kevin Garnett RC. Try to be as specific as possible.
  • The contest will go on as long as it has to. In other words, the contest is open until someone guesses the #1 card on my Top 25 Countdown. I check the blog a few times a day and will announce a winner within a few hours of the correct guess being posted.
  • First participant to guess correctly wins.
  • One guess per contestant. However, if you publicize the contest on your blog, you will get a 2nd guess. Make sure to include a link to your "pub" post when guessing.
  • Post your guesses in the comments section of this post.
  • Please read and adhere to all rules above.
Contest Hints:
  • Take a look at the previous Top 25 Countdown posts to get a feel of what and the many players I collect.
  • The winning answer comes from the early 90's.
  • Many all-time great players are featured on this one card.
  • I've had it for almost 20 years
  • Take note of some of my favorite card technologies.
  • My favorite team of all-time is featured.
  • It is not one of the cards from the prize package below.
Contest Prize:
  • The prize pack includes 21 Rated Rookie cards (including John Wall) along with a Tyreke Evans Jersey card #'d to 399. My favorite card in my collection and the winning answer is not one of the cards below being offered in the prize package.
Just a few of the 21 Rated Rookie cards included!!!
