1994-1995 Jam Session Gamebreakers #5 Hakeem Olajuwon

Who doesn't love an oversized basketball card? Probably a lot of people, but I enjoy them. The extra long cards seem to emphasize the height of the players. In the '60s there were oversized cards including Elvin Hayes' Rookie Card. In 1993, Fleer introduced the Jam Session brand which brought the oversize back.

Today's card is from the 1994-1995 Jam Session set. It is an Gamebreakers insert card featuring Hakeem Olajuwon. In addition to being oversized, the image of Olajuwon is also embossed which also makes it pop.

It's a gimmicky card, but I think it's a clean look with some sharp graphics.
