Obtaining the cards: If you were lucky enough to come across three different exchange cards while collecting 1995-96 Skybox basketball cards, you could redeem them for the 1995-96 Skybox Premium Lottery Exchange set. These exchange cards were placed into Series One packs at an overall rate of 1:40. The deadline for exchange was June 15, 1996.
The Set: The set included a header card showing a set’s serial number out of 25,000 and thirteen cards featuring the first thirteen picks in the 1995 draft. They came in a plain plastic wrapper and many collectors make sure to have a sealed set as part of their collection. The number a player was selected in the draft is featured prominently on the front as well as being subtly mixed into an otherwise solid background. The highlight over time has become the #5 Kevin Garnett rookie card, but others stars are featured as well including Joe Smith, Damon Stoudamire, and Bryant Reeves.
