Pre-Opened Packs #6: 1992-93 Upper Deck Basketball

This pack was freakin’ thick.  The previous owner appears to have snuck a few extra cards.  You might call it tampering, but I’m looking the other way.  Basketball cards are famously ripe for appearances by teammates, or, more likely, opposing players.  I’ll make note of any worthwhile cameos here.
P16 Otis Thorpe McDonald’s
Here’s one of the apparent extras, not that I’m complaining. 
Rick Fox cameo.
184 Thurl Bailey
189 Brian Shaw
Michael Jordan cameo, and what looks to be a Scottie Pippen cameo.  This would be enough to sustain me through the darkest of times if I had a picture of me dunking with Jordan wincing in the lane and Pippen swatting and getting nothing but air.  Just glorious.
175 Marcus Liberty
Cameos by Mark Jackson, Patrick Ewing, and Cadillac Anderson.
167 George McCloud
252 Dee Brown
297 Chris Mullin
266 Harvey Grant
201 Brad Lohaus
26 Charles Barkley
Larry Bird cameo.
78 Eric Murdock
55 Johnny Dawkins 76ers Checklist
AW4 Detlef Schrempf Hologram
20 Todd Day
P8 Mark Price McDonald’s
P25 Alvin Robertson McDonald’s
Cameos by Danny Schayes and Milwaukee legend Fred Roberts.
Okay, so by my count that’s 14 of the 15 cards listed on the pack, plus the contents of one McDonald’s pack.  I’ll allow it.
