The Autograph Card
The Card is Topps Elevation 2008 and it's numbered 15/15 (SOLD). This is one of my favourite autograph card, because i like the player and it's a scarce card. The card doesn't have a classic design, i think it's a contemporary style. In the front you can see a triangle piece of his jersey and his signature in a protection . In the back you can see the COA and a hologram.
David Robinson is living proof of the old adage that good things come to those who wait. A 1987 graduate with a mathematics degree from the U.S. Naval Academy, Robinson honored a commitment to serve two years in the Navy before joining the NBA. He was the best thing that ever happened to Navy basketball. A 6-4 player with one year of prep experience when he joined the team, he averaged 7.6 points and 4.0 rebounds as a freshman, but he grew seven inches while at the Academy and became a devastating force.
The Spurs, who won the 1987 NBA Draft Lottery and owned the first overall pick, looked at Robinson’s college accomplishments and decided he was worth the wait. According to plan, Robinson entered the NBA as a 24-year-old rookie with the Spurs in 1989-90. One of the most gifted and versatile athletes in the NBA, the former Navy midshipmen was the NBA Rookie of the Month all six months of the season, an All-Star at midyear and then an easy choice for the NBA Rookie of the Year Award at season’s end. You can all of his stats in NBA here.
Robinson and his wife Valerie helped establish the Carver Academy in downtown San Antonio, and they are now more active than ever in school operations and funding as enrollment is expected to reach 120 next year. And Robinson, the quintessential man of faith, humbly claims that “the only thing” he does for Oak Hills is lead a weekly men’s bible study that draws a crowd of at least 200 every time. With the newfound ability to attend church services every week, Robinson relishes his leadership position, and appropriately compares his bible study to a locker room like the ones in which he spent so many years as a spiritual model for his Spurs teammates.
"My number one priority when I retired was to be home, just to spend as much time with my boys as possible,” Robinson says. “I’m just figuring out how to be Dad and being a husband, so it’s a good challenge and I’m learning a lot from it.”
In addition to spending time with David Jr., Corey and Justin, Robinson is now able to devote more attention to a couple endeavors he was involved with before retirement: the Carver Academy for underprivileged youth and Max Lucado’s Oak Hills Church.
