>Mailday: May 19th

>I’ve been waiting a week for this package to arrive. I’m glad it finally came because I can add another Blake Griffin game used to my collection. His stuff is selling pretty good right now and I only had to trade away a couple Laker game used for it.

2010-11 Panini Classics Membership Blake Griffin #354/499
I really like the design of the card. It looks like a membership card you would get at a gym. It has the Member’s Name at the bottom right and his jersey number above the red jersey piece.
The package also included two other cards. One for my wrestling collection and the other is trade bait.

2010-11 Panini Classics Prime Dress Code Brook Lopez (3-Color) #12/25
I like the 3 color jersey piece on this Lopez and there are only 25 made, which is always a good thing. The design of the card is pretty simple, nothing really going on with the background.

Blake Griffin put on a show tonight.

Griffin jumps over a car:

The first round was actually exciting to watch unlike the past couple of years. Serge Ibaka’s free throw line dunk was my favorite.

>Blake Griffin Scores Career High 47 Points

>

Blake Griffin extended his double-double streak to 27 straight games.

He scored 47 points today against the Indiana Pacers, which is the most points in the NBA by any player in the 2010-2011 season. These 47 points are also his new career high and second most points by a Clippers rookie.

Griffin also added 14 rebounds.

If you haven’t seen Griffin play in person, you must do so before the season is over. He is amazing to watch and if the Clippers keep winning, they can try for that 8th seed.
