Former Knicks guard Mark Jackson’s Hoops trading card from the 1990-91 season has gone viral after one sharp-eyed Reddit user spotted the notorious Menendez brothers in the background of the photo.
Lyle and Erik Menendez are known for being convicted of killing their parents and are currently serving life in prison without the possibility of parole. But the pair were apparently sitting courtside at the time Jackson’s card photo was taken, according to Bleacher Report.
Reddit is mostly bad but the other day I learned on that website that the Menendez Brothers are in the background of this basketball card and that logistically this would be between when they killed their parents and when they were arrested and I cannot stop thinking about it. pic.twitter.com/fMb5ugLX2m
