Typically within a basketball card collection you can track the development of outside aesthetics—hip-hop mainly—and how they influenced basketball.
That is, a player’s ‘86 rookie card will feature tight shorts that end four inches above their knee. By ‘95, they look like they’ve been a part of an Allen Iverson-hosted What Not To Wear. 
Not the case with Stockton, who looks basically the same in every single photo of him ever taken. I assume he popped out of the womb with a five o’clock shadow, short shorts, and a preternatural ability to drop pinpoint passes.
