Drake bought over $200,000 worth of NBA Flawless cards in search of one of the biggest cards on the market
Quite the flex here from Aubrey. He posted this photo last night on his story and people in the card world went crazy. These aren’t just any old NBA cards, these are 2021 NBA Flawless Basketball. You can see that the pack literally comes in a briefcase with a lock and key. Want to know how much one of them costs? Anywhere between $15,000 and $20,000 per box. Yes, starting at $15,000 per box, you read that right. This is one of the most expensive boxes you can buy, Drake wanted to go big or go home. He’s not going to mess with blasters or anything, he wants to hunt the big guy right away.
Each briefcase comes with a pack that only contains 10 cards, so we’re looking at 140 cards for over $200,000. It’s all souvenirs or autographs with a ton of them strewn about, but he wasn’t just looking for a card, he was looking for the man with the triple logo. This is not an autographed card, it’s just a card with 3 player jersey logos. There are only 5 in the set so it’s a rare card. One has logos from a Lebron Lakers, Heat, and Cavs jersey, and some of the others have logos from guys like LaMelo Ball, Anthony Edwards, Giannis, Steph, Durant, Jayson Tatum, Luka, Zion, and Klay. These are undoubtedly great cards, and since they’re so limited, Drake decided he needed them. Looks like Drake bought them Lafav Cards and cracked one of them on IG Live. They didn’t pull the triple logo man in the one they opened, so I guess they’ll have him open the rest at a later date.
Now, one of the men in the logo was taken down last night, but it wasn’t by Drake, so I’m a little wary of this moment. Someone posted this one from one of Giannis, Steph Curry and KD on Twitter last night so you can get a pretty good idea of what Drake is looking for. Drake promotes a product and a few hours later someone else draws one of the 5 cards from the set. Hmm. I can’t quite connect the dots, but something is going on.
It’s quite Drake’s flex, buying so much of a very expensive product just so he can try and find one of the white whales in the set. The product was already very expensive, and now people are saying the price is going to skyrocket because of Drake’s influence and I believe him. So even though he didn’t have the man logo in his box alone, he still has a ton more to crack where he hopes to hit the Lebron patch. I hope he shows us the rest of his hits because I kinda need to know if he’ll get the white whale. Spending over $200,000 on cards and NOT hitting one of the logo man cards would also be insane, but that’s the definition of “fuck you” money. Happy Drake hunting and welcome to the hobby.
