The House of Cards

Slobbythegreat (username on everything and anything) is 33, the same number his favourite player, Scottie Pippen, wore at the Chicago Bulls. Here at Gimko, we are very grateful to talk to one of the most well-known collectors in the world and share his collection with our users.

I started collecting cards as a kid around 1992-95 and was reintroduced to them in 2009. I used to collect David ‘The Admiral’ Robinson. That guy was my idol and I loved the way he handled himself on and off the court. He was a hard worker that could stretch ANY defender on any night. However, I couldn’t bring myself to spend thousands of dollars on …continue reading
