I'm not super short, but on the low end of average male height. Perhaps because of this, I often (unfortunately) find myself rooting for the underdog (who lose 9 times out of 10) and I have an affinity for vertically-challenged pro athletes (jockeys not included). Here are some recent pickups.
I bought a Jose Altuve auto a while back. 2016 Archives Super /50. It's pretty cool. Nice highlight for my little Altuve PC.
I also recently picked up certified autos of a couple short basketball stars that I remember getting a kick out of during their playing days.
Spud Webb! /299.
Muggsy Bogues! What a terrific looking card!
Spud Webb and Muggsy Bogues.. great names. No way either of these guys could have a boring name like Rob Davis or Jack Richardson. I could have saved a couple bucks with stickergraphs, but had to do it right with on-card.
Love these cards, but after these and the Mutombo auto, (and another snazzy b-ball card I haven't posted about yet), I've put a moratorium on buying basketball cards for the rest of the year (or really any non-baseball cards). I just splurged a bit too much there for a while and need to focus up.
Thanks for stopping by.
