If you are an NBA fan, then you are probably an avid collector of sports memorabilia. One of the most popular types of NBA collectibles are those that feature an autograph from the sport’s top athletes. When sold from a specialty store, autographs are often outside of the price range for many and there are sometimes concerns surrounding their authenticity. Therefore, one of the most popular and least expensive ways to collect autographs is through the mail. The best part of all is that the only cost involved is that of postage stamps.
NBA athletes, in general, are often very accommodating to their fans and are commonly happy to sign an autograph. The best place to reach an NBA player is through their franchise team, which will not frequently change addresses and is therefore the most reliable way of making sure that your fan mail reaches its intended destination.
During the height of their career, many NBA athletes are swamped with autograph requests. Therefore, it can often be difficult to respond to each letter individually or even in a timely manner. Therefore, patience is the key when collecting NBA autographs through the mail. When requesting an autograph, always send a SASE (self-addressed stamped envelope) with enough postage to accommodate the return mailing costs. If you are sending your own NBA collectible to be signed, including a photo or trading card, make sure that the envelope size will accommodate the item without it having to be bent. If you are sending a larger collectible, you may need to ship the item in a box to ensure safe delivery and always be sure to include the actual return postage and not cash to cover the costs of mailing.
You can always reach an NBA athlete in care of their franchise team. In addition, listed below are the addresses of the Dance Teams for each NBA franchise. The dance squads will often send posters, signed and/or unsigned, to fans who request them.
