Say Hey! Contest

With today being Wilie May's 81st birthday I thought I would give this card

2000 Topps HD Images of Excellence #IE1
away to celebrate the fact.

All you have to do is tell me what set these cards

come from.

This is the warpiest(?) set I've ever seen.

Everyone gets 3 guesses.

Hint: It has the curves of chrome except the other way.

Hint #2: The fronts of the cards are bowed inwards and the set is 10+ years old.

Hint #3: It is not a baseball set. That should help out a bit.

Hint #4: Released the same year as the giveaway card.

Hint #5: Last hint. These cards have 20 layers of varnish on the fronts.

Hint #6: Another last hint. A basketball set. Here's a visual clue:

I really can't give anymore hints because there are no more.

    1. Nope. The color in the picture does fit with that set though.

    2. And you get 2 guesses so have another go.

  2. I was just trying to drop you an email but couldn't find you. I wanted to let you know that for some reason, when you post a comment it goes straight to spam. I've fished your comments out and posted them. Are you running into this on other blogs? Or is it just mine?

    As for that curvy stack. It has to be Topps Finest. Since you already hinted it's not baseball and said it came out in 2000, I'd guess either 2000 Finest Football or 2000 Finest Basketball.

    1. See comment below. I always forget to click the reply link and end up entering a main comment.

      Thanks for making me realize I didn't have an address on this here blog.

      I've corrected that now on the sidebar.

      About the spam comment below, you should cook Spam in brown sugar with mac and cheese. Tasty!

      Here's today's Harry Carey Quote of the Day: Did you know spam spelled backwards is maps?

    2. My email has a rather odd name. I just typed whatever came to mind when I made the account.

      That could be why it is filtered. The 'xx' might be doing it.

    3. Email is now on my profile page.

  3. I have no idea about the comments being spam but I do like Spam. It goes well with mac and cheese.

    Unfortunately, none of your guesses were right. But I'm posting a card that might help out anyone trying to guess.

  4. Going off the visual clue, surely it's not 1998 Fleer Tradition Basketball?

  5. OO, is it 2000/01 Fleer Tradition Glossy Basketball Cards???

    1. Winner! Winner! Chicken dinner!

      Was it the curve of those cards that gave it away?

      Check my profile page for my email address so I can send this puppy to his new home.

  6. Actually, it was the visual clue, I think! Knowing that it was a 2000 Basketball card helped, too. :)

    1. Yeah, the visual clue was the giveaway to the giveaway.
