Pearl Jam Would Have Been Even Bigger If They Kept The Name Mookie Blaylock

Poor Mookie Blaylock. He could have been one of the most famous players in NBA history if he just let that little band from Seattle keep their original band name. Life has recently turned very hard for Blaylock, who lived in the Atlanta area. He was recently sentenced to 15 years in prison for vehicular homicide when he killed a woman in a car accident in 2013. 

1993 Topps #268 Mookie Blaylock 

Mookie was always one of my favorite players because of his unique nickname. Here are a couple of rookies I have in my collection:
1990 Fleer #117 Mookie Blaylock RC
1990 NBA Hoops #193 Mookie Blaylock RC
