28 March 2014 – I just received the first of a few through-the-mail ventures I have got out there. Today’s is of Vitor Faverani, the former Valencia Basket big man who, after doing some workouts with various NBA teams, signed with the Celtics last summer. He was not doing too bad at all in Boston, but unfortunately his season was cut short due to surgery on a torn meniscus.
Two weeks ago or so I sent him three custom cards, one of which a die-cut, and he very kindly signed all three. I am absolutely thrilled about these, because he’s a great guy and I think he has got great potential to become a dominant center in the NBA. Awesome!
