TTM Success: Bob Cousy

I don't TTM basketball much, but with the chance to add a legend and one of the greatest PGs to ever play the game, I had to take a shot (no pun).

Hall of Famer Bob Cousy signed my card in 12 days. He personalized it, which is cool. There was no fee, so I don't mind when guys who historically charge personalize a free autograph. I think they do this so you can't sell it. Not that I ever would, anyways.
I didn't have any cards of his, so on my last COMC order, right before I requested shipment I went it and bought this Topps Turkey. It was cheap and I knew it would look great signed, as most Topps Turkey cards do.

I don't anticipate changing my style and going after too many basketball autographs, but you never know. I do have a bunch of hoops cards from the '90s.

  1. A true legend. Love the Coos. He was great as a color guy also on the local broadcast in the early 80's

  2. I did the same thing. Not into basketball but saw on SCF that he signs (just one per) so I picked up a couple of cards from COMC. I will probably send the second one later this year.
