Orlando Magic fans can land free autographs from franchise great Nick Anderson on Saturday during an appearance in Central Florida.
Big League Cards in Casselberry, Fla., is celebrating its 25th anniversary with a free signing tomorrow beginning at 1 p.m.
“It is so exciting to have Nick Anderson join us at Big League during our 25th anniversary Golden Ticket event,” said Alan Narz, owner of Big League. “As part of the event, there will be free refreshments, prizes all day, great discounts … and we will also be providing customers with free Nick Anderson cards, while supplies last. I know it is going to be a really fun day. I remember watching Nick play when the Orlando Magic were in the NBA Finals. We are so appreciative for Nick coming here to help make our event so special.”
But that’s not all that will be happening at the shop.
Orlando Magic forward Aaron Gordon may not have won the NBA’s slam dunk contest during the All-Star weekend, but he’s arguably the biggest winner on cardboard from the midseason showcase.
The story lines heading into this one revolved around the big names — the biggest name and story being the final All-Star appearance for Kobe Bryant — and the game’s MVP was a big and well-collected name, too, in Russell Westbrook. Even the dunk contest winner, Zach LaVine, was already well-known with his status as last year’s winner.
Gordon is the one who was introduced to the world — or at least the world of casual basketball fans and collectors.
Minnesota Timberwolves center Karl-Anthony Towns is off to a historic start after his first five games as an NBA rookie.
On Saturday, the No. 1 overall pick scored 17 points and grabbed 13 rebounds against the Chicago Bulls, putting him in some elite company.
