People on Cards that I have met in person

by Billy Kingsley - 14 cards (Last updated on Nov 13, 2021)

11. 1990 Classic Monster Trucks #83 Gary Porter

Met many times in the late 80s and early 90s at Monster Truck events at Orange County Fair Speedway in Middletown, NY

12. 1990 Classic Monster Trucks #119 Greg Holbrook

Met many times in the late 80s and early 90s at Monster Truck events at Orange County Fair Speedway in Middletown, NY

13. 1971 Fleer Harlem Globetrotters #31 Curly Neal

I cannot believe I forgot to include Curly Neal before now! When I was in 1st grade, in 1991, he and several other Globetrotters came to my school to do a performance. I can't remember who the other people were that were there, but Meadowlark Lemon is a possibility. I distinctly remember Curly, though! If I can locate my ribbon- or the scan I made of it recently- I will have the exact date I met him.

14. 1994-95 Stadium Club #216 Stephane Matteau

I met Stephane Matteau at a card show in Poughkeepsie NY on November 13th, 2021. I got a copy of this card signed. You can see a photo of me with him and a photo of the card on Cardboard History here:

I need an unsigned copy for my collection as well!

I was inspired by Gunny's list to add captions to mine. As you can tell I don't really do all that much, LOL

I love it!  Especially the addition of C2Cigars.

I wish I knew which Bench Warmer models I met at the National in Chicago.   I could make my own list!

David, you'll have to study each and every gallery then!

Good point, Billy!  I had all of them autograph their cards too.  I miss those cards...

Cool List Billy! I'd make my own list like it, but it would only have NFL WR's Torry Holt and Ricky Proehl right now.

I'm surprised you have not gotten any meet & greet attempts at the races you go to Adam!

I just did a little checking, and I was surprised to see that Kathy Najimy does not have any cards. (a card set from Hocus Pocus would sell!) I met her at a comic convention several years ago. I am 99.9% sure I met musician Trace Adkins at the Goodguys East Coast Nationals several years back. The guy sounded like him, looked like him, had a visible scar that matches, and Trace Adkins was giving a concert at Woodstock- about 20 minutes drive- the night after. Also, pretty sure he had thinly veiled bodyguards, and nobody brings bodyguards to a car show.

I also met Boyd Coddington in either 1997 or 1998, I can't remember. Was not a fan.
