Yesterday, Upper Deck sent the sneaker community into a frenzy after unveiling a new signature sneaker series as part of their upcoming Exquisite Basketball set. The limited edition series, perhaps the most ambitious swatch collection to date, features extra thick cards with genuine pieces of signature shoes. Exquisite Basketball hits hobby shops in early November.

While we're all looking forward to Upper Deck's new set, it's not the first time sneaker pieces have been added to trading cards. In fact, sneaker cards have popped up in packs since the memorabilia card boom in the 90s. Many readers told us that the Exquisite Basketball news has reignited their interest in the hobby, but here's 15 sneaker trading cards you can buy on eBay right now.
