Craig Hodges Private Signing

A few months ago, I had the opportunity to take part in a private signing with former Chicago Bulls guard Craig Hodges. 

I may not be the biggest basketball collector, but I had the chance to get a jersey of his at a great price, so I figured this would be a good chance to get a great-looking new addition to my expanding autographed jersey collection. 

This is my first signed basketball jersey, though, and I must say, it looks great! The colors really pop as it is, with the bright red jersey, combined with the black numbers. I had him sign it in silver with a "91-92 NBA Champs" inscription to signify the two titles he won as a member of the Bulls. I like the idea of separating the inscription and number when they have a double-digit number. It just doesn't make sense to me to fill one number with ink and leave the other one blank. 

I also added a card to this signing. The 90-91 Fleer set is the first that I bought regularly in the short time I was collecting basketball cards. It's not an overly complicated design, which is good, because the signature will stand out even more. I'm not sure if I will end up pursuing a basketball set, but if I do, it will be this one.
