Buy Lego NBA Collector Sets

Updated on March 13, 2011

The Lego NBA Collector Sets was a limited collectable range produced by Lego in 2003. The sets were released in groups of 3 NBA players and came complete with not only a Lego minifigure in the team basketball kit but also a collectable trading card with all the players statistics on. These collectable cards are stamped with the Lego Sport logo but are actually made by Upper Deck. These sets are not only great collector items but great gifts for NBA fans.

All in all there were 8 sets of 3 players released covering all the major NBA franchises but the series only lasted for one season and hence these sets are very desirable and collectible.All the players have a “spring-back” body, which means there are springs inside the mini figures that allow them to snap back into the upright position so that you can shoot for a basket.

The Lego NBA Collector Sets were part of the wider Lego Basketball range which was part of the Lego Sports Range. Kids and Adults were equally transfixed by translating the exciting world of Hoops to the tabletop, this theme was also well served with various items from the Technics range to add realism and good gameplay to the series. You could replicate the real match atmosphere with Stadium, players and training kits.

Ebay is a great source for new and used Lego sets especially all these discontinued sets and they can be at extremely reasonable prices, Ebay also gives you a huge variety to choose from as well as allowing you to still find items that are no longer available
