The Best Kevin Love Card I Own: Bowman Orange Rookie.

First and foremost, a big congratulations goes out to Kevin Love for winning the 3-point contest at All-Star weekend, and for an excellent showing in the ASG itself. Way to represent UCLA! I spoke recently about needing an upgrade to a Kevin Love rookie card that arrived from eBay dinged. This wasn't entirely what I had in mind at the time, but I'm more than happy to take it and run with it.


The newest addition to my Love Collection, and it instantly becomes the centerpiece of my Kevin Love cardboard PC. I do have an autographed 8x10 of Love from an appearance he did at my LCS way back when (which will hopefully be clearer when I retake a picture of it in the near-ish future). The orange goodness above is serial-numbered 265/299, and was had for $10.51 delivered. At roughly half of what it books for, I'm happy with the deal I ended up landing.


This will remain the centerpiece of my Kevin Love PC until that elusive auto becomes less elusive, or I somehow come across a ridiculously good deal for one of the lower-numbered parallels of this card. I am very much into the orange border; bright colors work tremendously well in my opinion when it comes to card borders on parallels.

Every time I see the guy play... I become a bigger fan. The guy just dominates the boards.

Great Card, Love, Rubio and Westbrook are my newest collecting endeavors. That orange is awesome.

Fuji- Dominate might be an understatement haha. It's Rodman-esque.

Charles- Thanks! The orange is pretty baller.
