What was I THINKING?!?! Collecting Josh Childress
in the draft by Atlanta, so I guess I convinced myself
something had to be there. To be fair, his stuff was never
expensive, I believe the most I ever paid for a Childress card
was 18 bucks, and it was an inscription card from SP Signature
that Josh Childress signed and inscribed "The Real Deal", but it
was pretty obvious Josh Childress was not gonna set the collecting
world on fire. I accumlated around 15 different auto'd cards of him
not to mention countless X-Fractors, Gold Refractors, etc. He wasn't
a bad player in Atlanta, but he was just average. He then played in Greece
for one year before coming back to the NBA signing with the Suns and being
relegated to bench duty. I probably could've just saved my money and bought a
nice Dwight Howard rookie card (I didn't even pick the right Hawk, Josh Smith
would've been wayyyyyyy better) but instead I thought the future was Josh Childress....
What was I THINKING!?!?
