Hey guys, figured I'd make my own thread on Hornets stuff I acquire. Have been a big fan of the Hornets, more from their Charlotte days. More than a month ago, I came up with the idea of trying to get each yearbook from the Hornets dating back to 88/89. So I'll see what other items I may come across as well. To start off, couple yearbooks I bought last month:

Me too. I'm actually keeping an eye out for one...the right size, right condition, right style and right price!

94/95 Charlotte Hornets Yearbook

Couple more should be coming in the next couple days. I bought 2 yearbooks from a seller and he accidently sent me the media guides from those years instead. After I told him about it, he said those media guides will be a gift for me so that was very nice of him. Will get pics of those soon.

Yep, what can I say, their stuff just looked hot. Also late last night I bought one of those old jackets, from Pro Player and new with tags for around 45 bucks. I will definitely be wearing it!

Oh yeah also, I was at the Nets/Pacers game this afternoon and Darren Collison (Hornets rookie last season) threw his towel into the stands after the game and I caught it. I'm glad at least the one guy that threw his towel was a Hornet haha.

Thanks guys. Earlier in the week I got a book about the Hornets first season, but didn't feel like posting about it. Today I got a late Christmas gift from one of my friends, a Baron Davis bobblehead.

Larry Johnson 8x10

Saw this photo on eBay and thought, hey why not get it? Who knows, I may get it signed one day!
otis0220
Last night I got my first signature to my Hornets Inaugural 8x10 after the Nets/TWolves game! Getting any of these guys is a huge accomplishment since you don't know the next opportunity you may have to get them. Big thanks to Kurt Rambis!

One of a couple more updates to come:

Charlotte Hornets Pin From 1994

Also got another item...sort of. This came from Canada so some of the stamps the guy used were these ones commemorating the Blue Jays' 25th season and I was able to remove one of them perfectly.



EDIT: Hmmm seems one of the other items came in today....was expecting something else.

The Five Arrived:

Charlotte Hornets Hive Five Set of Pins from 1993

These were each pinned to a player "card" about the size of a ticket.
otis0220
An important update for me today, I happened to see an auction including a ticket from their first ever game so I absolutely had to jump on it.

I could use the mug and the t-shirt is cool too. I was the only bid at .99 but unfortunately the shipping was $15. Don't you hate when they double what the shipping should be? I understand he wanted to make a few bucks but I can't complain about how great a job he did protecting the mug. Another update might come later in the week.

In for today:

Haven't gotten anything in lately so thought I'd share something I got last July. You know those special books the coaches carry around, with the gameball cover? Well I spotted one on eBay and thought it would be pretty cool to have.

Hey guys. I know, it's been awhile. Well today I got 2 yearbooks in the mail. One of them was my college yearbook. The other was a special edition of the Hornets' inaugural one.

1988/1989 Charlotte Hornets Yearbook - Special Edition

After messaging the guy about this yearbook and finding out it's a limited edition, he also told me it has a dedication page...for a season-ticket holder I'm guessing...and it's signed by one of the Hornets. Good thing he didn't include that in the description.

Well, at least the last name is Hispanic.

This is a great thread. I'm sorry I didnt see it sooner. Keep the successes coming!

Thanks for looking!

Thought I'd show an update of my Hornets Inaugural Year piece. As some of you may know, I met Muggsy Bogues last week and added him to this. That makes him Hornet #5.

In case you are wondering, yes that is a ticket from the first ever Charlotte Hornets game.
