Cheap Cool Cards #16: 1994 SR Tetrad Juwan Howard Autograph

You know that autographs have lost their luster when you can grab Juwan Howard's John Hancock for a buck. Yep... 100 pennies = a 1994 Signature Rookies Tetrad hard signed autograph of one of Michigan's famous Fab Five.

C'mon you remember the Fab Five... right? Chris Webber, Jalen Rose, Jimmy King, Ray Jackson, and of course Juwan Howard. They were the Wolverine's freshman starting five from 1992 that reach the NCAA Championship game in back to back years. All of them eventually went on to play in the NBA, with the exception of Ray Jackson.

A former first round pick out of the 1994, Mr. Howard is the last man standing from the Fab Five. In his 17th season, he's still finding court time with the Miami Heat. I'm the last person pulling for the Heat to win the NBA title... but at least if they do... I'll have the satisfaction of knowing that Juwan Howard will finally get a ring.

So... what do you think...

Who's going to win the NBA Championship this year?
Who are you rooting for?

If you had asked me before the playoffs started... I would have said the Bulls would meet the Lakers in the NBA Finals and take home their first title since Michael left town. But a lot of things have changed since then. My gut says that King James will finally get the ring the Cavaliers never helped him get. However, I'm not cheering them on. Now that the Lakers are out of it... I'd like to see Rose step things up and carry the Bulls to a title... but honestly... I'll be cheering for anyone who's not wearing a Heat jersey.

Happy Tuesday... and sayonara!


  1. I would love to see Dirk get his ring, he definitely deserves it and he's been hands down the best player in the playoffs so far. I think it'll be Heat-Mavs and I honestly don't know who would win, if the Mavs keep playing like they've been playing it should be them, but the Heat are a different kind of team, it should be very interesting to say the least!

  2. Cool Howard at a great price! I'm a Mav's fan, so I'm definitely hoping they will get their first.

  3. That's such a sweet card at that price.

    I'm rooting for the Mavs all the way!!!

  4. Anyone but the Heat. And I hope Howard does not get a ring as the Fab FIve wwhere a bunch of showboating whiners.

  5. Chris P - I definitely would like to see Dirk get a ring.

    jaybarkerfan - thanks... and I'll be pulling for your Mavs if they go up against the Heat.

    Charles - thanks buddy!

    Mike - Lol... I probably wouldn't be into college hoops had it not been for the Running Rebels and the Fab Five. For me... I guess I just focused on all of that talent they had on the court. But I'm with you on the Heat... I'm pulling for anyone except them.
