About Us

Welcome to Courtside Collectibles! I starting collecting in the early 90s and initially built my collection around Anfernee Hardaway. My favorite cards were: Upper Deck SE Electric Gold RC (the gem of my PC), Topps Finest RC, Fleer Ultra Famous Nicknames, and Topps Stadium Club Beam Team. In 1996, Kobe Bryant hit the NBA and the hobby, and I sold my entire Hardaway collection to another Penny collector to collect Kobe. I’ve been a huge Los Angeles Lakers fan since and it’s been amazing to see the evolution of the Black Mamba! Currently, my PC players are Kobe Bryant, Peyton Manning, and other Laker greats and rookies.

Back when I first started in the hobby, I remember breaking boxes of Fleer Ultra, Hoops and Skybox Premium. I still enjoy breaking boxes, but the hobby has definitely become more expensive. That’s why the concept of group breaks interested me. I started joining group breaks myself, but my experience was poor so I decided to start group breaks myself with the intention of providing a better experience for collectors.

Thanks for visiting my website and hope to see you on a future group break!
