No this isn't going to get San Antonio Spurs' Tiago Splitter in trouble with the NCAA like Johnny Manziel.
Splitter did some autographing of a whole lot of basketball trading cards and released the following picture.
Splitter signed some cards that were produced by the Panini, a local card company based out of Irving, Texas. From the looks of it, the cards seem to be those with a piece of his jersey embedded in it.
This leads me to wonder, which Spurs trading cards do you own Spurs fans? Do you have some rare/valuable cards? Any autographed cards from your favorite player?
Johnny $ball isn't in trouble yet and that bugs. Good for Tiago-rare for professional athletes to do this.
I'm a bit old for the whole autograph card thing. That said, from when I was a kid (and times were much different) I still have the autograph of George Gervin, James Silas, Larry Kenon and several other players. I literally walked down to the bench in the old Hemisfair arena before the game as a kid and they all signed it. My oh my..times have changed.
