Aim of this Site
 

NOTE: We are moving! I relocated with my work in March 05. This means that due to a change in ISP's - this URL is likely to become inactive at any time, but the site will spring up elsewhere. If anybody wants to donate a more permanent solution to hosting services, we'd be happy to have a look.

This site is dedicated to all of the Australian Sportsmen and Sportswomen who have played in American professional sports leagues.

This site aims to list each Australian who has played in the NBA, NFL, WNBA and MLB. I aim to have a checklist of all of the trading cards produced for each of these players, and to update these checklists on a monthly basis.

As I obtain copies of these cards, the card lists will have illustrations of each of these cards made available. Hopefully this will eventually serve as a comprehensive resource for Australian collectors of sports cards.

The title "Best of Both Worlds" pays homage to the insert card series created by Australian trading card company Futera. The cards featured players who had appeared at the top of their sporting profession in both Australia and the USA.



How To Use
 

This site is best viewed at 1024x768. Screens set to smaller than this size may occasionally have problems with the card images. If these images fail to load correctly when the page first loads, simply refreshing the page should fix the problem for you.

Each of the pages on this site have a menu bar on the left hand side of the page. There are 4 sections to the menu, the purpose of each is detailed below.

  • Home - contains a link that returns you back to this page.
  • Links - contains links to external sites that relate to the page you are viewing.
  • Sports - contains links to list of Australian players in that sport.
  • Players - contains links to list of trade cards for that player named in the link. The players listed in this section will vary according to which sport you are looking at.


  • Background Colors To help identify hard to obtain cards, colour schemes are used as part of the checklists.

  • Orange - A card with an orange background, indicates that there are 100 or less known copies of that card in existence.
  • Red - A card with a red background, indicates that there are 10 or less known copies of that card in existence.
  • White or Grey - The other alternating white and grey backgrounds on the checklist are simply to aid reading the lists and have no relationship to the number of cards known to exist.

    Trading
     

    The cards illustrated in the players checklists are cards that I own. I am constantly trying to update my collection with cards I don't have. Obviously there is a lag between obtaining cards and having them subsequently depicted on this website, however in general if the card isn't illustrated, then I need it. If you have cards on these checklists for trade, you may wish to check out my list of Australian player cards available for trade, and to email me at ozmlb@hotmail.com with a trade proposal. I have added prices next to the cards on the trade page - it gives you an idea of roughly how I weight each card in value, in comparison to others.
