In this thread I will be ranking all of the goat cards based off of their card art. So no, this has nothing to do with how good the card is, just the art. I feel like this is pretty self explanatory so let's get into it.
Number 9: Yao Ming
Look I get the design but it's just... off. I don't really like this one.
Number 8: Kobe Bryant
I really do hate to do my man Kobe like this, but I'm not the biggest fan of this card art. Like it's solid and I get they were going with the whole mamba skin theme, but I just don't think it's the greatest.
Number 7: Wilt Chamberlain
Very simple, very classy. I love this design.
Number 6: Stephen Curry
This card is so simple it's amazing. I love the gold water dropplets in the background (because you know, the splash brothers) but what really does it is the rain effect. Holy crap that's fire. I'm honestly tempted to put him higher up.
Number 5: Kareem Abdul-Jabar
I have one very weird critique about this cards at: why is there nothing in the bottom left corner. In the bottom right they have the ball, on the top they have the banners, what about that corner? I don't know, it just feels a bit empty. Despite this I think the card is still fire.
Number 4: Larry Bird
So I made a post after this card dropped that it has the greatest card art in 2k history. I was wrong. The more I look at it I go cool, but there are better. The card art is still god tier though to say the least.
Number 3: Giannis Antetokounmpo
How greek of 2k. I like it.
Number 2: Magic Johnson
This card is so creative. The lights to showoff the showtime Lakers, the streets of where he grew up (at least I think that's what it is), plus the newspapers in the back look FIRE. I love this card. But it's not the best.
Number 1: Michael Jordan
At the very end simplicity rules the day. The jersey behind him is SO FIRE. Too much heat if you ask me.
So yeah, that is the end of that. Let me know what you guys think down below!
