NBA Slam Dunk Champion Spud Webb Joins Vintage Breaks and Opens Packs

NBA Slam Dunk Champion Spud Webb Joins Vintage Breaks and Opens Packs


Basketball icon and Slam Dunk champion, Spud Webb, joined us to tell stories about his career and open packs of cards live on the show. Watch the video to hear Spud tell us how he got picked to be in the dunk contest and see if he pulls any big cards from his pack!

While we were breaking live from The Philly show, NBA star Spud Webb sat down with Leighton to talk about winning the 1986 Slam Dunk contest while standing at just 5'7" tall, his career, playing against Michael Jordan and opening up a pack of 1989 Fleer looking for his own card.  In the video you can hear Spud talk about:

  • Overcoming negative people that thought he was too short to play basketball
  • How he was selected for the Dunk Contest
  • Choosing the dunks he threw down in the contest
  • Playing against Michael Jordan
  • Why he thinks MJ, Bird and Magic have a killer instinct 
  •  Appearing on Johnny Carson
  • Signing autographs at his current job as a General Manager


Doc Rivers told him he'd never live down winning the dunk contest as a rookie in 1986. You DO instantly think of Spud winning the contest and forget he played 800 games in the NBA over a 12-year span! Spud could hoop, though, and his stats back that up. You can't play 800 games in the NBA if all you could do is dunk a few times during All-Star weekend.

Thank you for stopping by to tell us a few stories from your career, Spud! 


If you'd like to try and pull a Spud Webb rookie or the coveted MICHAEL JORDAN rookie card, we have a set break of 1986-87 Fleer on our site now! You can get all of the info and buy your spots here:





Vintage Breaks offers THE BEST VALUE IN BREAKING.

When you check out for a spot on the site, the price you see is the price you pay. Taxes and shipping are included!  Your cards always come protected in holders.  The last time you mailed a package out had to have set you back more than three bucks, right?  If you buy a $3.00 spot, you get your card holdered and shipped for that price.

Lack of product in stores has been a problem; we see the same empty shelves that you do.  If you can't find cards, Vintage Breaks is your solution.
