If you’re an NBA fanatic, you already know what you’re doing this Sunday. It’s the annual NBA All-Star Game, where the best of both conferences come together in one epic (and ridiculously scored) match. Typically, it’s the West that’s the best, just as the saying goes, but this year it’s anyone’s game — especially with the way LeBron James has been playing. Then again, I’m sort of bias.

With that in mind, Consequence of Sound thought we’d assemble our own team of All-Stars, only they’d be made up of musicians. The result is a rag-tag team of veterans and newcomers to the game. Some might be sweating it real hard (ahem, the 50-year-old Michael Balzary) while others are no more than fledging rookies (we’re looking at you, Biebs).

Nevertheless, here are some collector’s cards to add to your collection.
