Simply the Best

Simply put, there aren't many superstars today who are great TTM signers.  And then there's Dirk Nowitzki.  Not only is he a Hall of Fame bound player, but the guy will sign just about anything put in front of him.

I have a few TTM autographs from Dirk over the years, but when I found his RC in a dime box, I couldn't have been happier.  I sent the card at the beginning of the season, and it finally came back in the middle of the playoffs.

My basketball collection is tiny compared to football or baseball, but this instantly becomes one of my favorite basketball cards I own.  I can't gush enough about how much I respect a guy who makes that kind of time for fans in today's multi-billion dollar sports world, where more and more players won't even touch a pen unless there is a check attached.

  1. I've heard nothing, but good things about Dirk. The funny thing is he doesn't have many certified autos.
