Mr. Brown is one of the most entertaining dunkers in the game. It is truly amazing how high he gets his 6-4 body off the ground. In fact... it's straight nasty. He may not be the most creative. And he might dunk well under pressure (just watch last year's dunk contest). But... if it's in the middle of a game... and you need someone take flight... I'm not sure there are many who can out hop Shannon. His vertical leap is truly breathtaking. Check it out yourself:
The sweet thing about collecting Mr. Brown is that he's affordable. Just last month, I picked up this Shannon Brown autograph for $1. Sure it's a sticker auto... but it's an autograph nonetheless.

I picked the other autograph up a few months earlier during the summer for $2.
Card: 07/08 Ultra "autoGraphics" #AU-SB

His prices have gone up a little... due to his popularity with LA fans. His 09/10 UD "Signature Collection" autograph goes for around $20... but that's because he's pictured as a Laker. My suggestion is to search the forums for people who are selling singles. I picked up both of these off of a guy who has a shop on Sports Card Forum.
It might just be worth your time... to pick up an autograph of one of the sweetest dunkers in the game.
Happy Birthday Mr. Brown!
Monday's question of the day:
Who's your favorite dunker of all-time?
No doubt... mine is Spud Webb... but I'll save that story for another post. Have a great week!
