1997-98 Skybox Metal Universe Kevin Garnett Metal Gem

The most watched basketball card on eBay is this 1997-98 Skybox Metal Universe Kevin Garnett Precious Metal Gem Red #69/100. Over the last several years the Precious Metal Gem insert cards have risen in popularity and prices have exploded in value for the stars and common cards alike. Keep in mind these cards are very condition sensitive as the red and green borders easily chipped and fray. The cards are serial numbered on the back to 100. The first 10 in the print run have the green border, the last 90 in the print run have the red border.
Look for Upper Deck to produce new versions of the Precious Metal Gem insert cards in their upcoming 2011-12 Fleer Rookie Retro Basketball product.

  3. Yeah... they've been hot for the past 15 years! These things continue to sell for outrageous prices. Wish I had a Kobe or a Jordan in my PC.

  4. Original PMG's are the best Parallel Inserts period.
