My attraction to big guys probably evolved from the skills I personally possessed. The first two hoops guys I player collected were Patrick Ewing and Charles Barkley. I later added Chris Webber to the mix. I think I was drawn to their talent and the fact they were big guys who banged inside. The only guard I collect is Harold Miner who went to USC when I was in school and was my neighbor my junior (and his sophomore) year.
With 2015 being my year of the base card, I made a list of base cards I needed in my player collections and tried to grab some during my card collecting purchase. I thought I would group all my Patrick Ewing cards into one post. Nothing earth shattering but it is fun to check out some of Ewing's photos from throughout his playing career. One thing I noted when putting this together is that almost every photo is an action shot, unlike many of the baseball cards we get today.
Although my player collections aren't a stated goal for 2016, I am still going to work to add some cards to all my player collections. I will also share some Barkley and Webber new additions in future posts.
