There should be a sublist for the cards where it is clear Hakeem is going to block the shot or is making the shooter alter and miss it (I think the Tisdale is showing an imminent swat). As a certified Hakeem fan from the first time I randomly selected Houston Rockets on NBA Jam arcade game, I actually had started saving cards like this but did not know many of the cards. Thanks for putting this together -- it gives me some cards to target.

Glad you like the list.  When I started it I thought I would find 100 or 200 cards.  The list is already over 400 cards.

It would be cool to make a sublist for different categories.  Ex. Good defense, blocking shots, or getting dunked on by Jordan.

If you find any that I am missing please let me know.

Thanks,

I didn't see this Kenny Smith card when he was on the Hawks. Hakeem is probably not going to get the block on this shot. I thought it was cool to have the future teamates in the shot.

RefsInTheBack,

I have added the Raptors Hakeem cameo card to the list.  That is only the second one I have seen.  The other one is https://www.tcdb.com/ViewCard.cfm/sid/2978/cid/732847/2001-02-Topps-Chrome-165-Kwame-Brown.   Thanks AGAIN AGAIN for all of your help!

I came across a parallel first, but there is obviously a base version (and another parallel too):

1993-94 NBA Hoops Basketball # 260 Larry Johnson All Star

I don't think I saw this one on the list. Interestingly, I am positive this is a different photo of the the exact same move depicted on the Larry Johnson 92-93 Upper Deck All-Star card.

1993-94 Upper Deck Top Prospects Lindsey Hunter #492.

This has shown to be a fairly common angle/shot involving Hakeem cameo cards with a player going up to the basket and there is that scoreboard sign in the picture between the lower and upper decks at the Summit.

1994-95 Upper Deck Basketball #194 Carlos Rogers Draft Analysis

 

Hakeem is just everywhere.

Drudpwn99,

Thank you for the comments!  I appreciate all of your help with the list.

Hakeem is everywhere.  When I started the list I would have been suprised if I found 200 different cameo cards.  This list is almost at 550 cards.

1994-95 Skybox #332 Dikembe Mutumbo. Hakeem is on the back of the card.

Would you think that Hakeem is the most cameo-d player in basketball card history? It would actually make sense given his position and prevalence of certain types of photos used for basketball cards (e.g., moves close to the rim).

I knew Hakeem had a lot of cameo cards.  That is why I started this list.  A year into compiling the list I would have to agree with you that I do believe he has the most cameo cards.

I have a strong suspicion that is Hakeem's hand with the tape.

Its going on the list, right? [I see it now. I appreciate you referencing me for the ones I've pointed out -- it gives me great pride and satisfaction.]

Thanks for the help with the list.  The last two cards have been added.

Is there a way to do a quick search through the list to find a particular word or card# in order to determine whether a card is on the list? I don't want to be bothersome with pointing out cards that are actually on the list already -- I keep on finding more and now see it doesn't apparently go into chronoligical order as new cards are added. I will look over entire list and try and hopefully I can remember enough going forward to know cards not in list I come across -- this has inspired me to keep all cards with Hakeem cameos and revive a little collection I had going back in the day -- please forgive me if I make some mistakes on this in pointing out cards already on the list.

Click on anyones list. 

Top right corner click on "Update your collection."

This brings you to a sorted list.

 

Hope that helps.

Yes! Thank you for that tip. I am seeing RefsInTheBack is identifying a bunch of cards and its spurring a competitive fire in me to step up my game to match him. And its all for the greater good as opposed to personal glory, getting back in touch with why I became Hakeem fan in the first place.
